Carla's Art Portfolio

I needed a place to store my new art pieces. I don't want to make them all into cards or place them in frames. A portfolio of my own design seemed like the reasonable answer. I do enjoy using my Cinch Binding System, so its a win for this latest project. People can easily see my latest pieces and decide what they might like as cards or framed work.

I had my husband Sandy cut chipboard into two sizes, one for pages and the other for pockets to hold art work.
I covered each of the 10 pieces with card stock and decorated the pockets with small Gelli Prints. The book covers have lage Gelli Prints on both sides adhered to them.

Unfortunately the binder can not go through the chipboard with the chipboard pocket. So I made a new plan.

Now the book covers are held together with decorative string and the pages of art work lay loosely inside.
When I close the portfolio, it ties with ribbon. The holes I made originally are decorated with ribbon. Not a bad change, just a bit different.
