File Folder Makeover



"The post I have chosen is my File Folder Make-over.  A few reasons for it being my favorite are it stretched my creativity a bit.  They don't make metal file holders much anymore, so I had to think outside of the box and found a plate holder to work for it.  Also, it stretched my thinking in deciding how to apply the ribbons and embellishments without it looking over done, and having each of them be unique.  And last but not least, it really has been a fantastic solution to the piles of paper in my kitchen and looks amazing sitting on my counter.  It's always more rewarding when you question the outcome and it turns out better than you had imagined."

    Nina, you don’t have to be organized to make these. It helped me get organized, by having some place to put every family members papers so they didn’t get thrown away by accident, and keeps the mail from being everywhere but where you need it. Give it a try!!
