File Folder Mini #2: Welcome Home!

Hello Happy Crafters!

I’m so excited to share with you the next in my monthly File Folder Mini Series! 

Introducing the File Folder Mini #2: Welcome Home project, using Carta Bellas pretty Welcome Home collection! I mentioned last time that each FFM will be unique and this month we are going in a completely different direction. (I love it and hope you do, too!) This File Folder Mini has the exact same cover dimensions as before – that part will remain the same every month – but wait till you see what’s inside!

FILE FOLDER MINI #2: WELCOME HOME

This month we’re using black file folders and the lush Carta Bella paper (so thick, and I love the textured finish!) There weren’t any real solid patterns in this collection and the project needed a punch of solid color, so we’re also using Graphic 45’s Seasons Patterns & Solids. They were the perfect match!

Each side is a separate unit, with secret goodies behind their closed doors. (My favorite kind!) I designed this to be a “memory keeper” for holding all sorts of photos, journaling, and memorabilia.

Open the “policy envelope flaps” (with the cute beaded string-tie!) on the left side of this File Folder Mini and reveal a set of accordion pockets that expand out like a pretty little set of file folders. Each pocket can hold any number of tags and folders. As you can see, I took full advantage of that! (And they will hold even more!)

     

But wait, there’s more!

The compartment on the right has a cute photo folder on top…but it’s what’s underneath that makes it really fun!

Twin Mini Drawers!

You will learn how to make the entire drawer unit and the fun photo-fold-outs tucked inside each one. Each drawer has a little charm drawer pull, too! If you want to tuck other goodies in the drawers, the photo-fold-outs will fit into the accordion pockets on the left side.

Versatile and fun, this File Folder Mini has great ideas you can “scrap-lift” to use in other projects!

File Folder Mini #2: Welcome Home Digital Tutorial: Yes! This File Folder Mini project will also be available as a digital tutorial in my MiniBooksRMe Etsy shop.
