Quick, Easy and Adorable

My favorite type of craft for Avery’s mini naps throughout the day.
I saw this idea in a magazine and thought that they would be telling the reader how to make their own, but instead they were telling you were you could by your own patterned manila folders. They were adorable, but WAY cheaper to make on your own and you can make them in any pattern you like. I picked these papers for our mail center I am putting together.

*Beyond easy tutorial*


  • Manila folders
  • Spray adhesive or Mod Podge, I used the spray adhesive this time because I wanted it to go quick
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors

Open the folder up and place it inside down and then spray the front of the folder and the back of the scrapbook paper with spray adhesive. Then line up the scrapbook paper with the bottom of the front of the folder and press to adhere. Then flip it over and just trim along the edges… done!

    Now that is a great money saving idea.
    I totally agree with you nap time is such a priceless time of day. Isn’t it amazing what you can get done while the little ones are sleeping!
    Have a great day!
