Day 24: Gnome Makes File Folders from Calendar Pages

Wow!  I was up in the wee hours of the morning finishing yesterday’s post and when I checked my email earlier today I learned that WordPress.com had featured that post on their homepage Freshly Pressed! My mailbox had over 50 emails which is huge for me.  A warm welcome to each and every one of you including all new subscribers.

I was pretty bleary today as a result of the late night crafting and blogging so it’s a really good thing that the theme for Day 24 is Garden Gnome!  I have a needle felted gnome that I made and he must have either felt sorry for me or wanted to cash in on my 15 minutes of fame.  Because he crafted the creations for today: file folders from calendar pages.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll have a chance to clean up my crafting space (read the living room) and put some craft supplies away so I can get going on the last dash to the end of June and the final days of 30 Days of Creativity.

As far as I can tell, these folders were created from pages of a Paper-Source calendar, which is wonderful since their slogan is “Do Something Creative Every Day”.  Aside to 30 Days of Creativity Team: maybe they’d like to participate next year and donate cool, creative stuff!

If you had some beautiful paper that was large enough you could fold your own folders – simply trace around a file folder and cut it out.  Score and fold the crease in the center.  If you have thin paper that is pretty but isn’t strong enough you could use a glue stick to cover an existing folder.

These are the calendar pages before they were cut and folded.

Finished folders.  Thanks, Mr. Gnome. Very creative!

  1. When we set ourselves goals we somehow reach them! One goal at a time – not all at once. I’m a new subscriber, and looking forward to you reaching yours. I wonder what your next one will be ;o)

    I love this idea! I have been trying to think of different ways to spruce up the office supplies but don’t feel like paying an arm in a leg for it AND have been trying to figure out what to do with leftover calendar pages! You are awesome!
