I followed the tutorial on SCS to make this file folder legal pad holder. I really like these and I hope the teachers do too. I have one that I use when I go to conferences and other meetings at school or anywhere that I might need to take notes. Mine is well loved and it shows :)
These particular file folders had matching pens. I got a pack of three folders and a three pack of pens from the $ store, so I still had enough to make more :)
I made two of these today. The other one is slightly different. For this one, I secured it with a Basic Gray magnetic snap. The other one ties closed with the ribbon which loops around the entire booklet.
A final detail I added was a DCWV rub on placed on the pen. It's near the bottom and has the teacher's initial on it.
paper: dollar store file folders
accessories: cheapo ribbon that I got on clearance somewhere.
