Stampin' Up! Monogram "K" Stationery

"K" for Kari! Made this fun Monogram Stationery at my last Stampin' Up! Demonstrator group meeting hosted by my fabulous upline, Barb Brimhall! Love the personalized look and feel PLUS the Thoroughly Modern File Folders (pg. 169) are a great addition to the Stampin' Up! product offerings! These are NEW and contain a collection of great colors and a few from the new 2009-2010 In Colors: Bermuda Bay, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, and Rose Red! Package includes {12} folders: 3 each of 4 designs! Fun tip: You can also use these beautiful file folders in your stamp studio to organize papers, documents, or even scraps!
Here are the directions for how I made this:
Cut the width of a File Folder down to 6" and then cut off bottom hangover edge of folder so that the bottom edges are flush. Score across fold at 8-1/2"
2) Place your folder on your Stampin Grid Paper (pg. 191) so that the 12" side is along the ruler. At the bottom of the folder, measure over 3/8" from the middle score line (6" on the 12" side), and place a mark. Cut from this mark to the middle score line to create a "V" so that when flaps are folded up, they will lie flat with no bluckling.
3) Fold up the bottom pieces and attach with sticky strip. Be sure to create a "pocket" on the left hand side by adhereing adhesive only to the side edges.
4) Attach ribbon (pg. 182) to the back of the Jr. Legal pad with sticky strip. Tip: Don't make the ribbon too tight or the pen will not lay flat.
5) Attach a pre-cut coordinating strip of Thoroughly Modern DSP over the top of the Legal pad to hide the brand logo and slide notebook inside pocket on the right hand side.
6) Adhere Monogram letter (cut out of excess file folder pieces using the Big Shot) to the front of the folder Stampin' Up! Supplies used:File Folder: Thoroughly Modern (115692)
