Teachers: the Hang-Ups Family Organizer is perfect to use in the classroom! I like this idea better than the absent folders, easier to place the extras in the folder and reduce clutter on the desk!
Storing construction paper in hanging file folders.
File folder holder-This is how I made them. First, I picked out some scrapbook papers I liked. I adhered the scrapbook paper onto the fronts of the file folders with glue. I then used a hole punch on some to add a few holes to tie ribbon in to hold the sides together. I knew I'd probably store vintage images and scraps and such in these folders, so I didn't want things falling out readily. The others I stapled shut in a few places at the sides with various colored staples. Then I used some stickable paper ribbon at the tops. I found this at Michaels on clearance a few weeks ago. I then went through my stash of vintage images and quotes. I adhered these to scrapbook paper to give them strength and a degree of thickness. Then I just added stickers and whatever immediately struck my fancy to embellish the folders. (By the way, you can find these images free on certain websites. Just type into Google "free vintage images" or something similar and they will come up. Then just print them off.) I have decided I kind of like them! Beats plain old manilla folders, for sure. And they look pretty sitting on my decoupaged child's school desk in the red dish drainer.
