How to make a portfolio out of cardboard

I thought I would try and make something out of all the ends of A3 sketchpads I have accumulated making The Dawn Chorus. And I wanted an excuse to use this amazing wallpaper I found years ago at a flea market.

1. Stick a piece of ribbon or binding to join the 2 pieces of card ( from the end of the A3 sketchpad) I used copydex.

2. Stick your wallpaper over one side of the cardboard, overlapping the other side.

3. Stick a piece of ribbon half way down the side to tie it all together with.

4. Stick a piece of plain paper on each of the sides (inside)










  1. This looks lovely, you’re so clever.
