What could be better...a file folder for...

...showing off your kids...or your grandkids!
Mothers and Grandmothers LOVE to boast and show off their little ones.
This picture file will keep those pictures looking great in grandma's purse!

Glue Dots © Pop Ups, 1" lines, Micro, Mini, Removable
hole punch
Bella Blvd Sienna Alpha
Other embellishments: ribbon, pins, rhinestones, Rub-ons
Spellbinders dies
Card stock: white and colored
decorative File folder
decorative brad
School pictures or other memorable photographs

1.  Cut your decorative file folder to 9 x 6.25 inches. Score and fold in half.
2. Cut your inside papers to 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  Add tabs to the edge.  
3.  On each "page," use Removable © Glue Dots to temporarily adhere school pictures/photographs. Embellish the pages as you would like.
4.  Place pages inside the folder.  Keep the tabs peeking out on the side. Use a hole punch to punch a hole in the lower left corner. Be sure to catch all the layers.
5.  Use a decorative brad to secure the pages.
6.  Use 1" line Glue Dots © along the top edge.  Embellish the front as you would like.  A variety of Glue Dots © products was used here.

And, a rumble ribbon bow from Lovebug Creations wraps it up nicely!
I used "Olive You" from the Island Breeze Collection.
(Hope you are all planning great projects
 to tell your own mothers how much you appreciate them!!)
