How-To Make Colorful Document Files


How-To Make Colorful Document Files

Hello All..
During my Teaching practice sessions, I was in need of a colorful folder for my documents, for keeping all working lesson plans in hand & for some other record papers etc..our teacher says,she dont want to see plain files in any hand! everybody must have a designed file for lesson plans!
As I love paper crafts, So I made a few colorful files, actually i was too busy in my work while making these files, so i forgot to take step by step pics, i would like to show you today about my colorful creations, I hope you will not get bored!!

first i cut the card paper & fold it like a file,
then i cut some strips with designing scissor, & simply paste it over the file
then i cut some slim strips in blue color for fixing between red strips!
At the end, i take golden glitter glue & make outline with it,& with green glitter glue i make these tiny flowers :) I also fill the strips with glitter zigzag design,my thumb was getting tired much after pushing tube lots of zigzagzzzzzzzz !!

This is another colorful :)
I weave with a few strips & fix the patch in the center!! looking well? 
Oh yes, i paste a round looking mirror in the central point!!

 now the above red,green,yellow file is my less favorite..i think i have used much glitter here..

I take two colored foamic sheets & free hand make some flowers with pencil & cut it simply!
then paste flowers on card paper file & apply glitter!(but a little not much as i have applied)


when glitter will get dry, then punch & add ribbon in it..i take pics before punching…

After a huge effort & hard work..i got these remarks from my teacher…huhhh..
these are Remarks!! the kid above in 2nd pic was a part of my lesson plan on different stages of human i paste a tons of pics at every age group! that’s why i got good remarks, believe me my teacher is very strict in writing good remarks,,,hehe,sorry!

    Hi, Khadija. Your teacher certainly keeps you busy! And she’s right to be demanding–look at all the creative things you’ve produced and I think you’ve had a lot of fun while trying to meet her standards.
    best, nadia
