Funky Fairy Challenge - Cut up your cards

This week's challenge was set by Lydia:
OK...not so long ago we had our scissors confiscated, life was tough! you need them for sure! This weeks challenge is to 'Cut up Your Cards' ... literally!!! *.*Anyway you want to, just so long as it's been cut! Oh but...please be careful with those scissors in all the excitement! ^.^ Here's my take on the challenge: A folder card ready to send some PIF (see below) goodies off in. Started with an A4 piece of card printed both sides with designs from Funky Fairy's 'Funky Flowers' collection and cut and scored it to this:Then I folded in the tabs and flap to create the inside pockets and used my eyelet punch to create holes for the ribbon to pass through:I then decorated the front with a Funky Fairy Pinkie Pops Square printed on lilac card and mounted a flower pot arrangement using one of the Funky Fairy Doodles for Daniel stamps. I coloured this one with my pearly paints and a good dose of my fave glitter glue.
I got the idea for the folder from Jo King who has lots of lovely examples on her blog and there is a tutorial for them on Katharina's blog.
The rest of the team's designs can be seen on their blogs and on the Challenge blog here.
There's also lots of great freebie papers to download on the Funky Fairy Inspirations blog here.
