A File Folder Notebook Folder!

I've been busy again this week! I needed to make a 3D swap for my new friend, Jamie, in Japan! I've never mailed anything to Japan, so this was a brand new experience! I decided to use the Thoroughly Modern File Folders that Stampin' Up! sold a year or two ago to fashion my folder.

This is the Outside of the Notebook Holder, along with the "matching" card made with the Printed Petals stamp set. The colors are Rose Red, Regal Rose, and Pretty in Pink for the card. I also used the Four Frames stamp set and a sentiment from Watercolor Trio (a retired mini catalog stamp set that I adore!)

Two Inside Views:
The ribbon running down the middle is to hide a flub! I cut a slit, intending to slide ribbon through, but instead, decided to slip a ribbon knot over the notebook holder. If you don't recognize it, that's because it's new! Our brand new 2012 polka dot ribbon!

The book marks are made with another flower from the Printed Petals stamp set. I stamped them in Rose Red and used my 1 1/4" circle punch to punch them out. I then punched out a soft suede 1 3/8" circle, and layered it on top of the Flower Punch. I used a couple of layers of dimensionals to pop them up on the paper clip. Voila! You have a bookmark that took minutes to create!

If you're looking to make this yourself, go to Splitcoast Stampers to the Resource Section and look for File Folder Notebook Holders. It didn't take that long once I decided how to decorate it!

Thanks for stopping by today!
