Some time ago I was inspired by a similar file which ukmaryanne made and this is my take on it. Pop over to her scrappystickyinkymess blog and check out the lovely ones she made as well as all her other many great ideas posted.
However, I must say that I constructed this entirely my own way without using the pattern (later posted on her blog) but must give a big thank you for all the the inspiration. The file takes one piece of A4 card stock and the inserts can be made from various toning colours of offcuts.
I made mine as a mini desk calendar which can also be used for photos, stamped images, quotes, notes, messages, addresses, birth dates, etc. It's so handy that I'm sure you'll come up with your own use for this!
The card was decorated in my favourite style by blending Distress Inks randomly over a flower stencil and various sizes of sequin waste.
The flap folds back and tucks in to create a stand and inside you can see the file cards.
I think this would be a useful and attractive way to give and store ATC cards if it was sized down.
Here's another one decorated with scrapbook papers...
Each page has a hole punched and strategically positioned to hang in place, on the brad, at the top front of the file.
They would make terrific little gifts or such a great way to give photos. How about using the file as a handbag pouch and a means to brag about those favourite baby or wedding photos?
Made specially to size, it would also be a good way to package cards which have bulky embellishments.
If anyone would like my template for this then just shout but do pop over to ukmaranne and check out all her great ideas!
