Paper Fix Up
I have a file box that I keep my 8x10" scrapbook paper in. I also have a 3 ring binder with page protectors to organize my stickers. I wanted to keep them out on the bookshelves, but they're ugly.So....I perused the scrapbook paper cache and found great paper from the "Once Upon A Time" stack. The fairy wings and flowers are glittery...and you know I couldn't pass that up! I cut the paper to fit the front of the binder, glued it down, and covered it with clear contact paper.The file box was a bit trickier...I took foil and pressed it down on the file box to make the pattern.Then, cut it out, traced it onto the back of the paper, and did a repeat finish like the binder.I think it turned out fabulously! Functionality can be gorgeous with a little time and effort. I think this project took all of 20 minutes.
