My friend is a CTMH consultant and had a "Fit Folios" album class the other night where we made accordian albums from these 12 x 12 file folders used to hold memorabilia in scrapbooks. I thought it was a pretty clever idea and decided if it could be made from those, it likely could be made from a regular cheapo file folder from the office supply store...and I was right! :)
I used some coordinating papers from Imaginisce and covered both sides (8 rectangles total). I used my old school CM circle cutter to cut half circles at the top of the inside pages (my friend's idea)...then cut the patterned paper to match. I inked all the edges and embellished it with die cuts from my Cricut: frame, italic sentiments, flowers, hearts (HD), title (OA). I also added several stamped journaling spots.
To make the tags, I cut coordinating cardstock slightly smaller than the pocket size, about 4 1/4 wide by 5 3/4 long. I rounded the corners, inked the edges and punched a hole in the top for ribbon accents. The front page tag has to be slightly narrower to fit in the pocket, as the tabbed portion of the file folder makes that rectangle just slightly smaller.
And that's it...super easy, super quick, and super fun! TFL!!! :)
