How to make an ordinary folder Cute!

I was inspired by a picture I'd seen on some other sites (like splitcoaststampers) on how to take a simple 2-pocket folder into a cute 4 fold & pocket altered folder. I found these white folders on sale before school started for a nickel, and bought a whole bunch to do a class on (Let me know if you're interested). I folded the folder into 4 panels and adhered my pretty Designer paper, stamped paper, and so on. I decided I would use this to keep some basic demonstrator supplies in this: order form, wish list, fall brochure of my classes, post-it notes, calculater & pen, and some beautiful cards I'd made to pass out. I used clips and tabs to add interest, but since I wanted this to be usable, I didn't add a lot of additional layers.

Last week, I received my first order from this year's catalog and used my birthday money! Yippee! I ordered several wheels (Snow from holiday mini, All about Christmas, Dilly-Dally friends, Doodle, and Whimsy), 2 pkg of designer paper (cutie pie & Flowers for You), and a few sets of stamps (Garden Whimsy All in a Row, So many Sayings), plus ticket punch, paper-piercing kit. I'm so excited to use it! I've made a few scrapbook pages and cards that I need to take pictures of and then i'll post.
