Fun Mini File Holder

Mini office or storage files are super for cards, recipes, treats or just for fun! A friend (BG) shared her template with me and another friend (LM) sent me some Bella stamped images, the papers and cardstock are Close to My Heart.

Cut your template (this is small one) score and cut where directed.

Assemble and decorate. You can stamp, paper, distress and make for any theme!

I pulled my bottom back tabs out and punched a hole, tied with chocoalte waxy flax for a different look. You could also add bling, a flower, or great chipboard themed item. Please don't ask for the large template I don't have one~ ha ha~ I eyeballed it, assembled, and didn't make a template.

Book Mark and Holder

Sometimes we need something simple and easy to mail. Many are readers so bookmarks are useful and decorative. Make a matching holder and you have a great set!

Use a piece of 6-1/4 x 12 inch cardstock, cut your bookmark and holder, then score your holder.
Make your slit for your flap to slide in.
Decorate with scraps or something new and fun. I used Close to My Heart Silhouette papers.
I used one of the Silhouette stickease rounded tags on the bookmark then trimmed around it for a more decorative edge. Punched a hole to decorate.

Many ways and items to use for decorating. I don't recommend thicker ribbon or larger beads on the bookmark as it may not fit in the holder when closed. I used waxy flax and a spiral. There is also a clear "love" charm tied on.

Many options for themes.
