Paper Art is so much fun to make! What a great reason to use that scrapbook paper and create something special for your Mom. I used up some I had stashed away. I’ll show you how in all the steps and pictures below. This would make a great custom card and gift for your Mom, the graduate, or for a birthday.
Junk or Art Journaling can take extensive time. But to make a portion of one, such as this trifold tuxedo pocket can be done off and on over a weekend. This is a great project to see if you are interested in Paper Art or Mixed Media using Paper and Cardboard. I love all arts and crafts and this is just one of many that I love to create. I was inspired by these three wonderful YouTube instructors. Please, please go check out their channels.

Here is a picture of my take on their inspiration. I’ll show you more as I open it up.
It will take much longer to write and upload these pictures than it actually took for me to make this card. I did work on it off and on for a weekend. First I’ll show you the finished pictures, then I’ll show you the step by step pictures.
I used a 12×12 scrapbook paper printed on both sides. It came from the Calendar Collection by “Authentique”. This collection has some GREAT vintage photos for all seasons and holidays. For the side pockets on the inside I used 6×6 scrapbook paper from “Recollections”. See photos below.
My 12×12 sheet has plaid on one side and floral on the other side. I loved the plaid the best and wanted that to show the most. So I folded my paper so that would be on the inside. You fold in thirds. After I folded everything I distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Oxide in Vintage Photo.
I also added in a Mother’s Day Word Search that I made online. My Mom happens to LOVE to do these so I wanted to add and hide that into a pocket.
I hope you make one of these for your Mom or for Graduation.
