Hi Everyone, first I'd like to say that I'm sorry for the darkness of the pictures. But with my flash it kinda washed them out and you couldn't see the designs. I absolutely love to add texture to my cards through embossing folders. Well, I have them all stored together in a handy traveling case with extra space for the ones I get in the future. The only problem was, I'd finish my cards and then I'd say, "Darn, why didn't I emboss that piece." Well, I didn't emboss it because they are neatly stored away in their case out of my sight.
You all know how it goes, outta sight, outta mind.
So what I did, was get a 12 X 12 size of plain white cardstock. I cut 4 inch strips then I cut each strip at 3 inches. On the back I wrote the name of each folder and who I bought it from, encase someone would ask where they could get that folder in the future. Then I flipped them over and ran each one through my big shot. I used my half inch circle punch, to put a hole in the corner of each rectangle. I tried using my crop-i-dile, but the hole just wasn't big enough to give me the flexibility and space I wanted. So now I've got a nice size rectangle that I can see and lay on my projects to decide which embossing folder I want to use. There's even enough room to put two side by side so I can decide which one I like best, without having to take them off of the ring. Taking them off of the ring would just give my little girl a chance to walk off with it to have something to color on or for it to fall on the floor and my dog to eat it. They hang right in front of me and now they are getting more use than ever before. I even cut some extra pieces, so when I'm ready to get more embossing folders I don't have to pull everything out and cut up more. There's never any harm in being prepared, just encase you see a new embossing folder that you can't live without. LOL
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
