Fun 4th of July Folio Keepsake

Hi there! Jenn here today sharing a super fun little folio with a 4th of July theme! Independence Day is such a fun time of year for family gatherings and of course many photos are usually captured to collect wonderful memories. This fun little folio is a great way to keep those photographs!
The following amazing Tutti Designs dies were perfect for this project!

For my folio I used designer papers in the Bo Bunny® Firecracker collection

Other Supplies:
Plain cardstock in red, white, blue, and yellow
Adhesive tape gun
Foam Adhesive squares
Stickers from stash
Glittery blue ribbon

Start by making the following cuts 
For the base, cut a 5" tall by 11 3/4" wide piece from blue cardstock. Score this at 4" and 8" and fold and burnish on score lines toward you. This is the folio base.
Next, cut the following:
White - 2 -4 3/4" X 3 3/4" 1- 4 3/4" X 3 1/2"
Red - 1 - 4 1/2" X 3 1/2" and 1 - 4 3/4" X 3 3/4"
Patterned - 1 - 4 3/4" X 3 1/2"
Next make the following die cuts:
Patterned for front : 1 - Dotted Rectangle - 4 1/4" X 3"
Blue - 1 Dotted Square - 1 1/2" 
White - 1 Dotted Square - 1 1/4"
Red - 1 Dotted Square - 1"
Yellow - Cut three Stitched Stars 1 of each of three smallest.
I also used the Dotted Rectangle 2 1/4" X 3.125" to cut out the sentiments on the inside panel.
Finally use leftovers of designer papers and cardstock to create pockets.
Add some fun stickers to the pages.
Use ribbon for the tie by attaching to the back and wrapping around to tie in front on the side.
Start with the inside panels and adhere the base pieces using an adhesive tape runner. Add pockets and stickers. Complete the folio by assembling the front as shown. I used adhesive foam squares for dimension on the star die cuts.
