Almost a year ago when I painted the chalkboard wall in the kitchen, I added a little file holder to the wall, intending to make that area into a "kitchen command center" for all of those important reminders and such that float in every day. I'm finally getting around to finishing that space off, which I'll show you soon, but my filing spot needed a dose of personality. I had some cute folders, but they didn't really go with the space, so I took the 10 minutes needed and fancied them up. This is almost too easy to even write a post about, but I though it might spark your creativity!
Here's all you'll need: file folders, scrapbook paper, and a glue stick
I simply traced the front of each folder onto the patterned paper, glued along the edges, and stuck it down. This project was making me wish I had a bottle of rubber cement...I used to use that all the time when I was teaching and it would have been perfect for this. I've got to pick up another bottle!
Don't forget to cut a piece to cover the tab also. I just cut a small piece, not much shows when the folder is closed.
I did finish mine off with a few address labels that I stuck on and wrote categories on.
10 minutes - customized file folders - Just One Thing to make organizing more cute and fun. I need every bit of encouragement to stay organized that I can get!
