Time for Blog Candy!!!

The tutorial Below shows you how to make a two pocket keeper out of an everyday school 2 pocket folder. To win this Blog candy comment here on this post how you would use your keeper. I will randomly draw a winner when my counter reaches 3000 hits (or so) and the winner will get a filled Keeper. (The filling is a secret, Ha, ha, ha.)

Sara this is such a cool project!! I am going to make one, using the One Sheet Wonder (OSW) technique to cover my folder and then make some cards with my OSW paper and give the folder as a gift. I think I'll make one using stamped paper and one using designer paper. I'm excited to see how they turn out! What a great gift this will make. I'd love to receive one as a gift, I know that! Thanks for making a tutorial for us!! Barb

Hi Sara, This is a very cool project. I would use this to store my papers that I use for the Wish RAK group. I printed off the the sheet of info to send with the Wish RAKs that I do for people and also one for me to keep track of what I send to people. This would be a great place to put these so they won't get lost. I am enjoying the Wish RAK group so much. Anything to help me stay organized is great. Thank you.

Hi Sara. Barb was trying to explain to me last night how to do this. I followed until it got to the vee cut-out. Your tutorial makes it much easier to understand. I'm thinking I should make one for the cards my sister Barb is supposed to be sending me once a week! (Hope Barb reads this) This looks like a fun project. Bonnie

Please don't enter me but I wanted to let you know that this is a great tutorial. Thanks for sharing!!

Cool folders! Your tutorial is really nice, but having the real thing in my hands would be even better to see how it was constructed. So that's what I'd do with it - examine it so I can recreate more.

Way cool tutorial on the paper keeper. I would put stationary in it or cards. Thanks for a chance at the blog candy.

these would be cool to downsize a bit and make several ATC's that are related and give as gifts to my buds that like ATC's. Cute idea.

Cindy Vernon said...

I would put all of the card sketches that I want to do in there!

Great tutorial ! I'm going to do this for Christmas gifts of assorted cards for my MIL, etc. What a great way to keep them, thanks!

Sara-
Very nice project! I think I would use it to store cards that I need to mail in the near future-upcoming birthdays, etc. Thanks for the tutorial!

This would be great to put a few cards in and present to hostess at a class. Would also be something great to keep in my vehicle with card samples to hand to people that I meet and talk about SU with.

Would love to see if in person:) Great blog candy offer. Thanks!

Wow, that is really cool! I would put die cuts in there. I have a ton of die cuts and don't really know what to do with them. This looks like a good way to organize them. Thanks!

I would use a folder to keep extra stamped images to be included in RAKs or cards being sent to others. Right now, I have tons of little piles everywhere... :)

I love those things! They make great teacher gifts. I like to stamp up some notecards and envelopes for them, decorate the folder to match, tie it up nice and fancy with ribbon, and send it in with the DD. The teachers never have enough thank yous to send out to students, so these really fill the bill.

Hi!
I think the Christmas card idea is fabulous! I think it would also be great for saving Birthday cards or Baptism cards when your kids are little. Or saving any kind of cards as mementos (wedding, anniversary etc.) Great tutorial!

Great tutorial and cute folder. I'd love to just keep one on my desk for all my white paper scraps. Then when I want to quickly stamp something, I'll just grab the correct size of paper from my cute folder that's readily available on my desk:-)

Hello Sara - This is the first time I figured out how to post a message or blog. You know me I need to see it before I can understand it. If you have one done please bring along on Tuesday. Be prepeared to work - at least it will be cool in the basement. Thanks for your help. I enjoy looking at your site every day. Julie

Thanks for the tutorial! I had seen these on SCS but wasn't sure how to make it. I think these would be great for gifts filled with cards. Or you could fill it with hand stamped stationary paper and envelopes.

Oh, that is darling! I haven't seen that before. I'm slowly working on getting organized and that would be a big help! Right now I've got stamped images in piles on my desk, ha, not very inspiring. Thanks for the tutorial!
