Any Way You Fold It

Buttons over on the Frilly and Funkie blog showed how to create a pocket folder with a piece of pattern paper. The current challenge sponsored by Frilly and Funkie is Any way you Fold It. I took the fold that Buttons used and created my version of the pockets.

 I started from some beautiful soft pattern paper. and folded per the instructions on the FF blog.  I then added a touch of doily to the folds.  I distressed the edges with brown dye  ink. I cut multiple tags for the inside. 
 I stamped the Artistic Outpost - Flower Market Pansy using Ranger Archival Coffee ink and colored the flowers using watercolor pencils.
