Oh my, when I first saw these Thoroughly Modern File Folders I just loved them…and Stampin’ Up! gave us some ideas on how they can be altered and used in different ways…so I searched around and found some alternative ways to use them and I love the idea featured below – it uses just one File Folder that you turn into a beautiful notebook holder…you can see photos below…

These are just perfect for teacher or co-worker gifts and they are sooo economical to make – they cost only $1.30 in materials and look sooo professional…you can find them on pg 169 of the Catalog – they come in a pack of 12 for $10.95 and feature 4 different designs. For the notebook inside, I used a mini Legal Pad sized 8″ x 5″ that you can find at any office supply store – they cost around $1.99 for a pack of 5…I also made a notebook topper and a matching pen by wrapping a piece of Thoroughly Modern DSP around it, which you can find on pg 163 of the Catalog – what a fabulous and so very affordable gift 🙂

This is the outside…

This is the inside…


Doesn’t it look amazing? I love that there is also a storage pouch to store bits of paper, receipts etc too – this File Folder is fabulous quality and the patterns are just gorgeous – I was very proud to tote mine along with me to a teacher meeting last evening and got some great comments about it – many were asking where I got it from and were wanting to know more – you’d never guess it only cost $1.30 🙂
