Happy Fall! It’s always my favorite time of the year. Besides being the 1st day of fall it’s also my 8th wedding anniversary. Evan and I have to head out in a bit to pick up Roger’s gift. I have an idea of what I want to get it’s just a matter of finding it at the store. Yesterday I decided not to post so that anyone who didn’t have time to take the Tour de Freaks would have a chance to and it would stay at the top of my page.
This weekend while at the crop I decided to start on a few Christmas gifts using the Thoroughly Modern File Folders. I first saw them in the Stampin’ Success magazine sent to demonstrators and put a sticky note on the page to mark it. When Patty Bennett posted the tutorial on her blog I knew I just had to try it out, but I never had enough time until this past weekend.
I added a bow to the front of my folder, but I do not have it tied closed. When I had made Wish Lists about a year ago at my Open House everyone loved them but they commented that they didn’t want to have to re-tie a bow every time they wanted to jot down a note. Therefore this closes with a piece of Velcro and the bow is stationary.
Here is a peek at the inside of the folder. I have ideas for finishing it off, but again I have to find a moment to get it done. I plan to make a few cards to stick in the front pocket and decorate a pen to match. This is a very economical gift. When you purchase the file folders from Stampin’ Up! you get 12 for only $10.95. That works out to $0.91 per folder. As it is now the entire project cost about $1.50. Throw in a few cards and a pen and you have a gift that is under $5 but certainly doesn’t look like it.
Well I’m off to the store before it starts to rain more. I hope you have a fantastic Tuesday and I’ll be back tomorrow with another project to share.
