This is the first part of how to make the File Folder Mini I showed yesterday.


12 File Folders

Trimmer (I use a Fiskars Trimmer)

Score Board (Mine is Martha Stewart)

Bone Folder


Tim Holtz Distress Dye ( you can use ink or anything to change the color of the edges if you so choose)


Step 1: Cut the file folders down to 6". Make sure the fold is placed at the 6" mark not the other way around.

Step 2: Open the folders and score at 3 5/8" making the folders 6 x 8"

Step 3:Cut up the middle of the flap and cut the left flap off up to the Score line creating a pocket on the right side.

Step 4: Ink or dye the edges of the folders if you have decided to change the coloring of the edges.

Thanks for stopping by please come back again tomorrow for part 2~ Carla
