We often use our paper craft supplies for fancy, fun, and whimsical creations. But every once in a while we find a really sensible use for them that will enhance our everyday life. Today I am going to show you how I used supplies from SRM to create a new filing system! What!?! Yep, a filing system, with paper craft supplies!
Our family is busy and with four kids, I have to be organized or things get ugly. One of my biggest weaknesses is having too many piles of paper work. Bills, invitations, school newsletters, they take over fast. And then I can't find anything! So when I saw this post recently on creating a "Tickler File" on Home Solutions 101. The basic idea is to jog your memory on upcoming events, tickets, bills due, etc. Click on the link and it will take you right through how to set it up! It's a system I knew would work for me so I got right to creating it!
Using Number Stickers and Calendar stickers are the obvious part and SRM has a variety of them available in the Calendar section of the store.! I used months from the Year of Memories Sticker Set. My numbers But wait til you see how I made the file tabs!
The new Wafer Thin Die for the Decorative Calendar Sticker works perfectly! I cut enough to make tabs for 31 days and 12 months.
Running it thru a xyron machine allowed me to have a strong adhesive when I secured it to the file folders.
So there you have it! Just another way to use those paper crafting skills and supplies for something that came make your life even better!
