Dressy Notebook

Yesterday I spent the day blog surfing.  I visited various different blogs, mostly other Stampin' Up! demonstrators (they have some awesome projects).  However I did check out Splitcoast Stampers, which is for stampers of all sorts.  The featured project was a file folder notebook.  You can find the tutorial for this project here.  Jenn Dierks (creator of this tutorial) used a fancy folder from the Thoroughly Modern File Folders (Stampin' Up!).  I didn't have one on hand, but I did have the plain jane ones you get at any office supplies store.  Once I figured out the folds, I decorated my new notebook cover with old DSP from Stampin' Up!.   It was time I did something with this paper.

This is the notebook in the closed position. 

I used Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon to tie the folder shut.  This ribbon coordinates perfectly with this DSP.  On the right flap, I cut a slit that would allow the ribbon to be fed through easily. 

This image shows how the folder opens.


This is the open position of the notebook holder.  As you can see I decorated the inside as well. 

This is an excellent project for recycling old file folders and using retired DSP.  Give it a try.

That's all today folks.  Enjoy your weekend.



  1. Simple but yet very sweet, and very well done.

  2. Very cool - what a great little set! :)
