Mini Folder Lap Desk - Graphic 45 Birdsong

Hey Crafty Peeps,

I have wanted to create using the G45 Birdsong collection for quite a while.  I have a project in progress that is not working out as I would like, so, I put that on hold and decided to do this instead.  I am not an architect or engineer, etc., and the engineer to whom I am married, insists that I use my brain and work these things out for myself.  So after approaching this project the long way, I looked at my final project and realized that all I really needed to do was use the double dutch fold layout and simply bump up the size and add the spines.  Oh well....(sigh)!  I am thinking about adding a stamp holder and a place for post it notes.

The front of the folder is covered with clear contact paper. The stamps and cut outs  are beneath the contact paper.  The chipboard embellishments are on top of the contact paper.



 I had fun creating my little notebook.  I didn't want to use chipboard on the back of my black card stock, so I cut up a brown folder and used that.  The color is a better match for the collection.  The big metal embellishment is an ear ring.  I don't know why I both these earrings, they are so NOT ME, but makes a nice embellishment.

I cut regular notebook paper down to the size I needed. It is lined, but the lines don't show up here.

I am working on my share video for youtube.  There are a lot of construction pictures! :D)  Thanks for stopping by!
