It's a File Folder

Here's another project using that fabulous Envelope Punch Board . . . a little file folder.  It was one of the projects I did during my demo, too.

People really seemed to like it. . . so, here's a tutorial on how to do it.

Supplies Needed:

·         Envelope Punch Board
·         8 ½” x 5 ½” piece of cardstock
·         Scissors or Paper Trimmer

Step 1:
Start with 8½” by 5½” card base, folded in half

Step 2:
With the 5 ½” side of the cardstock at the top of the board, line up the left edge with the left side of the opening in the punch part of the board and punch.

Step 3:
Slide the cardstock over to 3” mark on the left guide ruler and punch again.

Step 4:

Trim ½” off the opposite side and the repeat Step 2 and Step 3

Step 5:
Line up the dip from the punch with the groove of the paper trimmer and cut off the rest of the top and bottom edges so that just the tab is left.  (Or just use scissors.)

Step 6:
Using the Reverse Punch, round the corners of the file folder and embellish as desired.

Viola!  You have a file folder!

Thanks for stopping by today!
