Autumn Spice Organizer

This is a variation on the Accordion File Folder, and here is the tutorial for that. This is more of a book form though. I just love this paper! The prints are gorgeous and the heavy cover weight of it makes it a dream to make more durable projects with.

Here is the spine of the "book". I glued the mountain fold together, so this isn't actually and accordion fold anymore  :) This back piece of DSP was 8½"x7¾" . To help with the fold, I scored at 4" and 4-1/8" from the right side. 

There are 3 "pages" in this organizer. I am using it to keep track of the projects I am being commissioned to do! I didn't realize how many there were until I sat down and wrote them down!

I used More Mustard and Cajun Craze card stock stamped with the medallion from Day of Gratitude and some scraps of the DSP from the cover to finish the inside. The pocket edges are secure with Sticky Strip. Before securing the pockets, I put an eyelet in the back cover, threaded a loop of  some of the retired Gold Elastic cord I had around, and stapled the loose ends to the inside pocket. This wraps around the front and fastens around the Antique Brad on the front to hold the book closed.
  • Stamps: Day of Gratitude
  • Paper: Autumn Spice Specialty DSP, More Mustad, Cajun Craze
  • Ink: Early Espresso, More Mustard, Cajun Craze
  • Other: file folder, Signo white gel pen, stapler, Crop-A-Dile, Metallic eyelet, Gold Elastic Cord (retired), Antique Brad
I hope you give this project a try! And if you still need some of this yummy paper, go right on over to my store and get some!

Great project - perfect for this paper. It's so heavy duty that I have a hard time using it on a card. This is the inspiration I needed - thx!

So fun! I just used the last of my paper, but it would have been good for this project!
