Fun Halloween Photo and Treat Folio

Hello everyone! Jenn here sharing a fun little Halloween folio I created using some amazing Tutti Designs Dies!!
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing all of the costumes and decorations! I created this folio to place photos of my grandchildren in this year.
This folio folds into a 4 X 5.5 so it is a fun way to pack a lot of fun into a small space!
The dies used for this folio:
(largest die used)

Here is a collage of all of the fun pages! 

Cuts needed for this folio are as follows:
Using the largest Dotted Nesting Rectangle die cut 12 from designer cardstock 
Die Cut the Spooky Keys from black cardstock.
For matting:
Use an array of color coordinating cardstock to cut 8 -  3.75 X 5.25
In my folio these are the green, purple, and orange mats.
For the belly band closure cut from designer scraps a 1.5 X 12 strip. Fold it around the folio for the right fit and use score tape to adhere the folds together at the end. Make sure it has a little bit of room left when slid on but still keeps the folio closed.
Use scraps to cut strips to accent some pages such as behind the little envelopes as I did.
Use the cut aways from designer paper collection to layer onto the die cut rectangles. These can be placed in any way you choose with any paper collection! Fussy cuts and stickers as well as some Halloween themed washi were added. Decorate the belly band and there you go! A fun keepsake or gift!
To create the base of this folio:
Cut two sheets of 8.5 X 11 Black cardstock to 4 X 11
Connect them at the ends using 1/4" score tape. Be sure to line them up the best you can!
Place lengthwise on score board and score at 5 1/8, 5 3/8, 10 1/2 and 10 3/4
Line up the 10 3/4 scored mark back at the start of score board and score at 5 1/8, 5 3/8, 10 1/2 and 10 3/4 cut off any excess.
For the fold out center portions:
Cut two 8.5 X 5 sections from black cardstock
Place on score board lengthwise and score at 1 and 4 3/4
Place score tape on the 1" folds and adhere to the inside edge of the base. Adhere one on the left side and the other on the right.

Here is a close view at the detail achieved with the dies.
