School Folders Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
Here is a fun way to take a little bit of home to school with you. We purchased folders at our local drug store and made them personal using photos of family pets and fun summer memories, but you can use pictures, drawings, stickers, anything you like. We embellished them with die-cut alphabet stickers and Swarovski Crystal-it paper transfers.
Step one: Arrange your photos and pictures in a fun pattern and apply with Quick Hold Craft glue.
Step two: Embellish with stickers and Crystal-it paper transfers. Please see the Handy Tips section for help on using the Crystal-it paper transfers. On the "Summer Fun" folder we used the double spiral twice, cutting one of them in half for the decoration at the top of the folder. For durability you can coat the folders with a decoupage type medium.
