Lisa's Marie Antoinette Folder
Our Marie Antoinette folder swap is winding down. The last folder I got to work in was Lisa's. Wow! By the time her folder arrived, it was bursting at the seams! Lisa didn't have a particular theme for her folder. I thought about using pretty soap and perfume labels. There were so many of them, it was difficult to decide which ones to use. I wanted to use them all.
That was when I decided to do a flag pull-out for Lisa's folder. A flag pull-out uses and accordian fold to display several tags (or flags). I covered each tag with a different soap or perfume label--24 in all! They were so colorful and each one a beautiful piece of art in itself. The flag pull-out adds an interactive and visually stunning feature to the spread.
When you first turn to my spread, the accordian folds are closed. To open the accordian fold, you pull the pink ribbon down. There are three accordian folds on each side. I placed images of Marie Antoinette on the background and the text reads "Dans la salle de bain, il y a beaucoup de savons et parfums."
