I decided to make a folder for travel memorabilia -
Here are the pockets inside (please excuse the poor photography - my background paper wouldn't allow me to photograph all 4 pockets at a time so I took 2 photos and placed them side by side in the file photo below). You can use the pockets to hold maps, brochures, ticket stubs, receipts or other kinds of flat memorabilia.
I took a few pictures to help explain how I made my folder. Step 1 - cut down your folder to the desired height, I made my 9.5 inches tall.
Step 2 - turn the folder inside out .
Step 3 - fold the right side of the folder to the middle (only one side of the original folder is folded at this point).
Step 4 - flip the folder over and fold that side to the center as well. Now you are done with the construction part and ready to embellish. (oh, if your folder doesn't have a straight cut all the way to the outside edge of the folder you will need to cut it yourself so that you can get paper all the way to the edge - I need to cut mine.)
I used paper to cover the front and then I used 2 coordinating papers to line the inside and outside of the pockets. For the cover I used Miss Kate Cuttables Plane Flying Around the World file and a sentiment from Scrappy Moms Stamps Ticket to Adventure set. Then I made labels for each of the pockets using sentiments from Scrappy Moms Stamps Ticket to Adventure set and Picture Perfect set.
If you would like to see another example of this kind of folder please check on my Holiday Planner.
