You know you can go and buy those expensive binders that have nice pictures in - well I really can't afford to go and pay between $6 and $8 per binder. She needs 8 of them for the year, as she starts High School tomorrow. So we thought we would have a bit of fun.
I bought 2 packs of 4 of these binders from Costco, costing me $8.49 per pack. So approximately $2.10 each.
I said to Shannon that we could decorate these however she wanted. At first she wasn't convinced:-(
Then we realised that the folders had slip in front and back covers. The spines also have slip in slots but were to awkward. So, firstly we got the good old vinyl out and put the subjects that she is taking this year on the spines, like so. We used the Art Nouveau cartridge for the font.
Then I told her she needed to choose the papers to go in the covers and what she would like to put on them if anything.
We decided to have a play with the Four Legged Friends cartridge - she wants to be a vet when she is older and loves all animals. All the animals were cut between 3.5" and 5.5" depending on the animal.
Shannon chose all the backing papers (which we have inserted in the front and the back of the folders). She also chose all the layers for the animals and I think they came out really well.
Sorry about the single pictures, I was hoping to put them side by side but just can't seem to get them to do it.
Shannon is one happy teenager. She has some very unique folders to take with her to High School and they didn't cost me an absolute fortune.
Hope you have all had a fabulous long weekend.
Thanks for stopping by today.
