America the Beautiful Shaker Card


Photoplay America the Beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbon May 2022 Ribbon Club Kathy Clement

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  Every year I look forward to the Red, White and Blue Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. It has never disappointed me, but this year it is extra fabulous!  You'll find stars, stripes, dots and solids in vibrant shades of red, white and blue in this Patriotic Ribbon Club!  It inspired me to create this great big shaker card folio.

This 5 3/4" x 8 1/4" top fold card doubles as home decor, and it serves as a mini album to hold all your fabulous photos.  Here's how I put that Patriotic Ribbon Club Assortment to work.

  1. Create a border with Red Satin and Electric Blue Swiss Dot Ribbon. Use Scor-Tape to attach the ribbon to the card front before you adhere it to the card base. 
  2. Add Red Swiss Dot Ribbon Bows to the corners of the shaker element.  Then top them with a little Ivory Burlap String Bow
Now you're ready to dress up the inside of this card folio!

Score and fold a row of 3x4 images to create a little pull out folio on the top of the card.  

This gives you room for small photos and journaling, too. There's ample room to add a large photo behind this feature.

Create a 5 1/2" x 6" mini folio to tuck into the bottom pocket. This gives you room for even more photos! 

The hidden side pocket inside is a great place to tuck a couple of Polaroid style photo mats.  Remember to leave the top and one side unglued so that it's easy to tuck your photo behind the frame.

Flap features add even more fun to this mini folio.  As a bonus, you can leave the card out as part of your patriotic display this summer!

I hope I've shared some ideas to help you make use of this month's beautiful Ribbon Club.  Have fun with it!
