I made this file folder ( among other items), for a silent auction that will be held at hubby's family reunion over the 4th of July. This project went rater quickly and was quite fun, so I thought I'd share.
Make sure you have LOTS of glue sticks for the glue gun. I thought Mode Podge would do the trick, but quickly resorted to the gun. Measure front, back and bottom of the file folder. Cut cardboard to the appropriate size. Cut fabric and cover the cardboard. My file folder had a flap, which I cut off. Glue the fabric covered cardboard to the file folder, leaving a pinch of room to tuck in your ties. Cover raw edges on the sides with a trim or lace , (see side view). Glue a coordinating mix of ribbons on the top edge of each divider of folder. continue to adorn any way you wish. I added a few vintage button paper clips, and crystals to my tie.
