Pin It


School Folder Project

Yeaaa! It's Thursday...which means it's almost Friday! Yeaaaa! And I remembered to photograph the little file book I made for my fellow 3rd grade teachers for their birthday. I used mostly the Simply Scrappin' Kit Primary Colors. I love these kits! The textured card stock and patterned paper are so yummy, and they have sooo much in them to use! I think the only thing I added was their initials from my "contraband letter" collection and some American Crafts school-type ribbon. The next pictures show the inside and back side of the folder.

My upline showed me a project like this they made on the Stampin' Up! cruise. At the time, I didn't have the paper and stamp set they used to copy it, but I loved the project. Then I saw it again on Patty Bennett's blog (love her and her stuff!!), so it inspired me to go ahead and give it a try. I bought the plain white folders on sale at Office Depot during the back-to-school promos, but you can also get neutral colored ones in packages there (see the picture on Patty's blog). Let me know if you have any questions about this, it's super easy!

Speaking of school, did I mention all the teachers got brand-spankin' new laptop computers last Friday?! Are we special or what?! It's not a Mac, but beggers can't be choosers, right?! I just need to get wireless set up at home now so I can be free to "work" from any room in the house! Yipppeeee!

Hope you have a terrific Thursday!

This is gorgeous! I bought a package of white school folders to make these and it is still sealed of course. Maybe now I'll get the motivation to get it done.

This one is so cute. I may have to get that kit and make one for Colin's teacher. Maybe it will cheer her up after their classroom flooded today.
