Make Your Own File Folders Your Way

You know what’s fun? Doing a project then getting someone else’s take on it. Or in this case…several someone elses!

I recently created some file folders out of 7gypsies 12 x 12 scrapbook papers. This video has instructions for the very simple process:

I was curious to see what someone else might come up with if they started with my process, but then made it their own so I threw that challenge out to a few of my fellow CCB Crew Members. They blew me away with their file folder renditions!
Marie Johansson made mini file folders to neatly store her unruly ephemera and scraps:

Erin Reed’s folders feature some of the newest paper designs from Canvas Corp’s Miscellanies collection. Check out Erin’s blog for more photos and to see a video of her process:

Lynne Forsythe’s Gypsy Seamstress file folder decided it wanted to be a fabulous mini album. Visit Lynne’s blog for more details and photos or watch her process video:


Shel C’s Christmas-themed file folders are perfect for organizing all your holiday notes and lists. Watch her video for all the details:

So the next time you see a project and you think to yourself, “Okay it’s cute but it’s just not me,” or “It doesn’t really fit my style,” remember that you can give your own personal touch to any project, style, or theme to make it your own. That’s what crafting is all about!
