Decorative File Folders DIY

February 03, 2012

Redemption at last!  Finally a reason why I saved scraps of wallpapers of rooms and houses past (and present).

A bottom drawer of my guest bath holds 40 (!) years of wallpaper scraps.
I loved the way they turned out.
I used this simple tutorial found here.    I cut the wallpaper a little larger than the folder and then folded it in half.  Outdoors I opened the folder and sprayed it with Alene's Tacky Spray Glue, then lined them up together and smoothed it out.  I used a rotary cutter and mat to cut along the straight sides of the folder edges and used scissors around the tab.

Very easy, very fast and very pretty!  But mostly I like that I'll be able to see my old wallpapers every day!
