folder tutorial

To make your own custom paper folder choose your color/print paper in a 12x12. This will fit 8.5x11 paper that is landscape and cut in half, or anything smaller.
Take your piece of paper.

Fold your paper in half.

Open it back up.

Fold the bottom up anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 inches, but no more than 3.

Fold the bottom back down to prepare to glue.

Just a thin strip of cool glue on each end. (I use cool glue because it dries quicker and doesn't smoosh so much.)

Right after applying the glue to both sides fold the bottom back up and hold until dry.

Insert your papers. In this case I put all the game papers on one side and the advice cards on the other for my baby shower.

Then tie it closed with something cute. You can write something on it if you want to personalize each one, or leave it blank.
