Graphic 45 Magic of Oz Sentimental Scarecrow Folio for Butterbee Scraps

Hello, Friends! We’re kicking the month of October off with this Magic of Oz Sentimental Scarecrow Folio, and it’s a very fun way to get things started! Butterbee Scraps has the cutest Wizard of Oz charm collection, and it goes perfectly with Graphic 45’s Magic of Oz collection. Don’t those ruby slippers make you want to click your heels together and chant, “There’s no place like home…there’s no place like home?”

The Scarecrow was always my favorite Oz character, so I made him the star of this 5″ x 7″ folio. Even though the album is small in size, it is loaded with interactive features, and very fun to flip through.

TIP: Paint silver tone charms with Tarnished Brass Distress Paint for a quick makeover. Just tap it on with your finger. I also used it on the roses and on the edges of the chipboard charm.

TIP: Chalk paint is wonderful for painting metal objects. There is no need to prime with Gesso, so it’s a one-step process. Paint the G45 Drawer Pull with black chalk paint. Then come back and tap the raised areas with gold to create a wonderfully aged finish.

Sentimental Scarecrow Folio: Fun at Every Turn

TIP: Create this folio base by joining two 7″ x 11″ panels of heavy black cardstock. To do this, adhere 1/2″ Scor-Tape along the short edge of one sheet. Then peel off the liner tape and align the 2nd panel over the tape.

TIP: To create the base for this folio, score the long side at 3″ 3 1/2″ 8 1/2″, 9″, 13″. Trim the piece on the right to measure 2″ wide. This will fold and become the right hand pocket.

TIP: The Magic of Oz is a fussy cutter’s dream come true! Cut Dorothy and Toto out from the large 6″ x 6″ card front. Then trim out the compass rose. Adhere just the bottom and right hand edge to form a pocket for Dorothy to live in.

Die cut patterned paper using the G45 ATC Tags die. Line the tags, add fussy cut cards from the collection and tuck into the shallow side pocket.

The center pocket is a surprise flap page with a hidden pocket beneath it. The left hand panel is a 5″ x 5″ accordion pull out page. As you can see, I’ve decorated all the panels with fussy cut images of our Sentimental Scarecrow. I just love him!

The hidden pocket has (3) 4 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ photo mounts tucked inside. You’ll see all the details in this short project share video.
