Customized File Folders

As I was making the scrapbook paper and fabric-covered notebooks recently, I was inspired to spruce up some plain file folders at the same time.

My office at work is getting a bit overwhelming, and having something pretty – like these sweet patterns – to look at always cheers me up.

It all started with this lovely patterned file folder that I bought a few years ago.

I found papers in my stash that coordinated with these folders, and I cut and glued them onto plain manila file folders to transform them into these eye-catching beauties!

I really like how all the folders work together.  Now, to clear the rest of the office!

I also made a folder for L, who has a lot of artwork to organize, though he now favors his DIY scrapbook paper-covered notebook .

I also covered all the folders in Clear Contact Paper to make them last longer.  An easy project, and they look great.  Can’t beat that!
