Remember ….
You can incorporate any of the ideas, tutorial or projects using any of all of Authentique beautiful collections! 
Authentique has the most wonderful papers to create with! 
Don’t you think:?

*****Folios are different sizes of folded papers with binds. 
They always have hidden pieces…like tags, Epherema Cards, waterfall mats, candy, or like this my Liberty Folio with a hidden mini album! 
Really the sky is the limit to what you can hide in a folio to add that little extra surprise. 
They’re so fun to create and even more fun to gift. 
Enjoy Pam
