Shanya's File Folder

Yes, I told you about this "thing" I have this month, this file folder thing.

Shanya is turning 12 next week and I made her a file folder and three cards
out of a 12"x12" craft paper, one plain card stock and three patterned papers.
Her birthday card was also made out of the same paper.
(Shanya is the little girl, that I have been doing remedial lessons with 
for the past two and a half years. Yesterday was my last day with
her as a tutor and I gave her, her birthday present.
Last year I made her a button bracelet.)

The outside and inside patterned paper was stitched to the craft paper
with a sewing machine.The numbers on the outside and the houses
on the inside was double mounted and attached with foam squares.


Because of the double sided paper the cards were quick and easy.
The paper clip was decorated with a ribbon and an acrylic bead.
Tie some ribbons were you want them and there you go
.... another one finished!


  1. I love your file folder! I saw it in the Craftwise mag and found your blog address there. I definitely have this folder on my (long) list of projects, but it will be moving to the top of the list! Now I'm off to browse the rest of your gorgeous blog!

  2. Your blog is amazing. Thanks for sharing your beautiful and inspirational projects.
