5 foot of cream ribbon or seam binding

Normal tool kit
Xyron Tape runner 
Xyron Glue Stick
Xyron Sticker Maker

1. Take your file folder and the United States Map papers and line the inside covers of the file folder and cut off the excess paper. Now on the outside front cover I have added the long sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet across the top and then added 2 banners and the road trip 3D sticker as well as the are we there yet sticker.

2. Take the 12 x 12 sheets of Grand Cannon Paper and adhere them together back to front. Now cut 2 x 5 x 12 inch pieces. Take one and fold at 5 inch mark and score with the next piece fold and score at 4 inch mark. 

To make into folder stack the page folded at the 4 inch mark on the bottom and the 5 inch on top so that when folded in ½ they layer so you can see the layer to join together on the score line punch 2 holes 2 inches apart thread through some ribbon and on the outside tie a bow. Now on the back add tape and adhere to the inside cover of your memory file in the center.  

3. Take your Hambly over lay and cut to be 12 x 6 inches fold and score in half

4. Take the stable wall paper and cut a piece that is 10 x 8 and adhere this to the inside of the back cover in the center. I have also added some lace and calico as well as a calico bow to help dress the page

Now cut a piece that is 8 x 4 inches fold and score in ½ so it become approx. 4 x 4

Now lay this piece inside the Hambly overlay and lay both in the center of the memory file and punch 2 holes on the score line and tie together with ribbon with the bow on the outside of the memory file 

5. Now you need to print photos of your trip and add them to the pages and embellish as desired using the packets of embellishments.

6. You are now finished your memory file

Tip you can use scraps of fabric and lace to also decorate the memory file

Thank you for calling by Kim
