Make your partner a mini file folder for them to use to corral bits of paper or stickers...

  • Take two pages from a discarded book.
  • Try to use some that aren't too old so they hold together for awhile.
  • Use a glue stick or gel medium to stick them together.
  • Cut the top of the page to resemble the tab cut on a letter file folder.
  • Fold the page in half to make a folder.
  • Decorate the front of the folder using any medium you want. Collage, paint, diecuts, lace, ribbon, stickers, etc. Let bits of the text from the book page show through.
  • Put a couple of pieces of paper ephemera inside the folder for your partner to use.

My folders are about 4 inches wide and a little over 3 inches high when folded. You can make yours any size your book pages are, but large enough to be useful. I love using these as "covers" for my ATCs, or for extras in swaps.

Package securely, add adequate postage, send on time, mail promptly.

This is the coolest idea! I've made lots of mini folders, but never used book pages before. I'm excited to get started.
