Here's a fun way of doing up the old 'manilla folder'. I bought some coloured ones, and as they didnt have singular tabs across the top... I cut some into them...
Then it was fun play with Dabbers (taking the lid off and using a brush) and Stencils!

For Hannah's Folder the products used were The CraftersWorkshop 'Aspen Trees' Stencil (love love love this one!!) with Pool-blue Dabber (sold out) but there is Aqua and Juniper which are close in colour.

For Paige's Folder. I used Chevron stencil and Snow White Dabber

And for Meaghan's Folder - Chicken Wire stencil and Terra-cotta Dabber (sold out) but there is a lighter one Peach Bellini or even go red with Red Peper
Image

Once the stenciling dried, draw with a fine liner for definition of the image. I've also glued down the ends of the folder so they become more of a 'slip-in' folder rather than everything 'slipping out' :lol: :lol:
Each of the folders have a little window transparency - they are from My Minds Eye and are fabulous. THe ones I have are long gone from the shop - but MME are still making them and there are quite a few in the shop - just do a search in the 'Search Products' box on the upper right hand side - (copy and paste this - My Minds Eye Transparency ) and you'll see all the fabby ones that would be great for pockets!

The little lace doily name tags are a die - Dizzy Doily its my absolute favourite!! I have used this over and over! (any scrap paper - I'll run off in my Big Shot and pop in a box for later - and find I've always got my hand in it! The doily can be removed from the little window... and the folder can be used for something else. Any tag or journal block will do well there too.

Alpha - LOVE Lilybee Design - for Hannah and Meaghan's names.
(Had to find an obsure purply alpha for Paiges :roll: )


This idea would be a great project for teenagers wanting to do up their school files... or if you'd love to do some for your primary school kids too! :P Maybe they could be used for some fabby scrap files too!

these look great Mandy - love the way you have used transparencies for windows and you can swap and change around the names of the files
