What can you do with 3 pieces of scrapbook paper?

Well, let me tell you. This. Yep just 3. To be fair one sheet is a double sided print, one sheet is a double sided solid and the other is a plain sheet of Bazzil. I love double sided paper. The white is just printer paper. The lists and titles are printed with MS word.
  
With the scraps from the altered file folder I made a magnet shopping list for the fridge. If I had more paper left over I would have embellished the shopping list a little more. I used every shred of those three sheets! The ink is SU! and the stamp is stampabilities.
              
The lady I made this for owns Just Scrap It in Sherwood AR. If you're down this way stop in her place. It rocks.  
                
The instructions for folding the file folder are here. The ink pen to match is super easy, just buy rsvp pens that unscrew. You just roll up a scrap and slide it in, then screw the cap back down. I think it's a nice touch. Paper clips are large size with punched flowers.

I had no idea there was a store in Sherwood! My brother lives there (and mom in LR) so I will definitely have to check it out next time I am there.

Beautiful work, btw.

This looks really neat. I have my coupon book in the process - haven't had much time to finish it. Been watching my 4 month old great great niece along with my two nephews, it makes me a little more tired!! LOL

I love this projects. It has so many possibilities. Thanks for including the instructions - I'd hate to figure this out on my own. ;)

I never thought it could be possible. I own about 7-9 hair straighteners from cheap to deluxe. Not one of them could

penetrate my thick, curly hair enough to do anything other than heat up the cuticle and make sizzling noises. This iron is going to change my life. I spent 700 on ionic straightening, and this iron works

better!!!! If you spend any amount of time wielding a heavy blow dryer, forget about it. I used this iron on Air-dried, curly hair. I wish I could upload a digital photo- I look like a hair commercial.

Unbelievable but true!!! I LOVE IT!!!

I first tried this product when visiting in Portland and mistakenly assumed this product left my hair so nice-to-the-touch because the Oregon water was so soft. Not so. Using it in my own hometown, I

have had the same results -- soft, natural curls. Too many styling products on the market leave hair stiff and crinkly. Moroccan Oil Intense Curl Cream is well worth the cost. Be advised that only a

dime-size amount is necessary to great results
