It is National Love Your Files week! What better way to show a little love to your files than creating some decorative file folders?
How to Create Your Own Decorative File Folders
Decorating your file folders is essentially the same in each tutorial. The difference is in what you choose to decorate with! Have some wrapping paper you love? Use it to decorate your file folders like in this tutorial. One benefit of using wrapping paper, is you can bling-out your folders with some metallic shine, without breaking the bank.
Another easy resource for covering your file folders is scrapbook paper! Scrapbook paper comes in a huge assortment of colors and designs, making it easy to match any decor!
Do you like a vintage look? Try using vintage fabric or sheets to cover your file folders! Place them in a vintage file box to complete the look.
Have leftover wallpaper from a recent decorating project? Use wallpaper scraps to cover your file folders! If you made your folders match your office walls you will never have to look at those pesky files again! Brings new meaning to the idea of office camouflage!
Do you love all the decorative washi tapes that are so popular right now? Pick a few of your favorites and start taping the front of your file folders!
What about turning your decorative file folders into hanging pockets? Brilliant!
