Note Pad Portfolio

Last summer Patty Bennett posted a tutorial on her blog showing how to convert Stampin' Up!'s Thoroughly Modern File Folders into portfolios to hold 5" x 8" mini legal pads.  You can see Patty's tutorial HERE.  Judy and I had both ordered the file folders but neither of us had done anything with them.  We decided that the portfolios would be one of our projects for this week.

The only change we made was to use craft magnets for the closure rather than the velcro that Patty used.

This is the portfolio closed

Here is a view of the inside

Thoroughly Modern File Folders
5 x 8 Mini Legal Note Pad (we got ours at Staples); Craft Magnet or Velcro; Sticky Strip; SNAIL
Tools - Paper Cutter, Scoring Tool

We also made two cards this week - both of which I had previously posted.  You can them  HERE and HERE.
