These little folders are made using the Natural Composition speciality designer paper, which looks like clear-embossed kraft and is stunning in real life! There are six different designs, and you can colour the papers in a variety of ways if you choose, but I chose to leave them natural for this project. I tied the folders up with grosgrain ribbon and added a tag, stamped with images from the Chalktalk stamp set and cut out with the coordinating framelit. Are you wondering what's inside the folders? Well, come and see:

My youngest son chose a rum and raisin ice cream for pudding which prompted him to tell us this story: At primary school lunch they used to serve a pudding with chocolate bits in it. It was a favourite with the children but one day they swapped the chocolate bits for 'healthier' raisins and the children stopped eating the pudding. As a result, the recipe was changed again - the raisins were swapped for bits of peaches - "Which was worse!" said my son. My eldest son who had remained his usual monosyllabic self during our meal was moved by this story to utter his longest sentence of the day. "Yeah!" he said with feeling. "I remember that!" He relapsed into silence after this effort and continued to do full justice to his Sticky Toffee Pudding!
See you tomorrow,
