Fall Manilla Folders-Get organized!

I decided to make some fall folders covered with scrapbook papers. I thought it would be neat to see at a glance my fall-idea, memory, Thanksgiving ideas, fall recipes, kids costume ideas, folders, etc. This went real quick, I used a glue stick, scrapbook paper, ink pad for inking the edges, and labels. I love it and now want to fill them up with all my saved papers, magazine articles, recipes off the internet, great ideas, etc.









I'm always a little happier when I am organized. Lately I ask myself "now where did I see that idea?" so I keep once piece of paper with scribbled blog addresses on it to find that certain idea!
Blessings,
Debbie

I thought I was the only one that covered things like that! I use my prim kraft wrapping paper and cover notebooks and magazine holders so they look better on my desk. Now I am going to try this for some folders!!

More terrific ideas... Now all I need is a few more hours added to my day so that I can get all of these fun projects completed ;) So many ides so little time...

I hope to check out those fall photos soon, too. I'll bet there's loads of decorative eye candy to admire!

You did a wonderful job. Now I am sure things will be so much easier to find.

I always say I am going to get more organized and I try but something comes along and it just doesn't get done. I did organize my closet this past weekend and I am very proud. Love going in there in the morning and not having to HUNT for something to wear. Have a great day.

Debbie,
How smart that is. I never would have thought to do this...Geeze I have so much scrapbook stuff that I need to do this...I print things all the time now since I found this site so I can make or cook...so now I know how to fix them in some sort of order.
