Inkling: pretty file folders {martha stewart paper}



Hello friends! Do you enter giveaways? I don’t scour the Internet looking to enter tons of giveaways but I do enter giveaways hosted by other blogs when the prize is something I would love to have. I’ve won some fun things too.


Getting a package in the mail is always fun and this Martha Stewart paper pack that I won from Etcetorize was an instant day brightener.



I know I’ll find lots of uses for these pretty coordinated papers and the first thing on my list was to make pretty file folders.



To make these file folders just measure an existing manila folder and cut your paper. A rounded corner punch will give your corners a nice rounded edge. Remember, the back piece will be taller than the front piece so that you can label your folder. I used clear packaging tape to stick my back and front pieces together. Packaging tape goes on super clear so you won’t even see it. Plus, it will reinforce the bottom edge of the folder. If you want to cover the tape, add another strip of paper over it.




And since I don’t like to waste, I used the trimmings to make these cute business cards. 


  
Now, my blog business card and shop card are tied together with twine or scraps of ribbon. I can send them out with shop orders or hand them out if I’m ever at a blog event.


By the way, did you know that I have an ongoing Giveaway Link Party. You can link up your giveaways and visit the links to enter for a lot of great prizes – because it’s always fun to win a pretty prize.

Thanks for visiting.
