CTMH December Stamp of the Month "Notice the Details" Blog Hop featuring an altered file folder 4 Pocket Organizer with Bella

Welcome to the December 2009 Blog Hop featuring Close to my Heart's December Stamp of the Month "Notice the Details" (set of 41 stamps). This is a circular hop so if you keep clicking on the links at the bottom of the posts you'll make your way through all 60+ consultant blogs with art projects featuring this stamp set! If a link is broken you can click HERE and go to the full list of participating consultants.

This month's project is a two-for-one for me as it features our Dec. Stamp of the Month AND is a Christmas gift for my Mother-in-law! This is an altered file folder project with 4 interior pockets created by folding your cut-down file folder. On the front I stamped my MIL's first inital in our Baroque Alphabet, colored in the J, outlined with a gold pen and put the whole thing under a square window charm. Some stitched Hollyhock ribbon holds the whole thing together when its laced through two eyelets.
Here is the interior shot - each of the 4 pocket tags uses "Notice the Details" stamps as a frame for the label.

Close up of first two pockets - one for a daily to-do list and one for weekend plans (my in-laws have family near them in South Carolina and do a lot of weekend activities).

Last two pockets are for a grocery list (very important!) and a running chores list. I hope she'll find this a useful tool for organizing her to-do's now that she is retired! I'll be printing up some customized lists to fill this for her Christmas gift and try to do a few extras as gifts for other ladies on my list. 24 days 'till Christmas and counting!


This is the back shot of the folio showing the finishing work on the back and the ribbon attachment.

Paige,
I LOVE this project! I have been wanting to make something similar to this - you just made it concrete for me. I am assuming you used a standard file folder. Do you have a pattern? TFS!
