woohoo been playing with File Folders a la Ashliegh Heppenstall (Scrapsbuttonsnbows) you gotta see her ustream – http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/45653413 she used this technique for her Brain Book. Love, love love that idea, Ashiegh then transfers it to utube https://www.youtube.com/user/scrapsbuttonsnbows (for storage and ease of access methinks lol) )
I made templates for ease of use to make life easy for myself.
I love to organise things (ok so for the past 6 months I have not been doing that – get back in there sunshine – ok boot applied lol).
I used the US cardstock size 8 1/2 x 11 in (for UK you might squeeze in another small tab).
I did my templates on the long side (US 11” / UK 11 3/4”) to enable me to have as much template as possible.
(please note this is not a tutorial on how to use the envelope board rather on how to make file folder tabs templates. Utube has lots of videos on how to use the board.
Envelope Punch Board
Trimmer or Scissors
Using US paper and Envelope Punch Board
TO MAKE THE TEMPLATES:
Place edge of cardstock at appropriate marker, in this instance 2 1/2” and punch (I tend to edge the beginning of the cardstock after I punch my eyes have a tendency to put things upsy downsy and round about lol.
either eyeball the centre of the punched out area or lightly mark with a pencil the centre.
Place the centre of the punched out area at the 2 1/2” mark and punch continue down the page until your template is completed
TEMPLATES MADE TO DATE:
1" you get 11 tabs showing (I use these for numbers etc when I have a load of stuff I need to keep organised)
1 1/2" you get 7 tabs showing
2" you get 5 tabs showing
2 1/2" you get 5 tabs showing
3" you get 3 tabs showing (will use this on a 12 by 12" sheet for watercolours etc)
