Homemade Embossing Folder Holder

As promised, here are pictures of my finished holder for my embossing folders. It is made out of rescued interoffice envelopes destined for the trash bin. I embossed sheets of envelope paper, ran an ink pad over them to show the patterns, then glued on to the pages. The pages are stapled to form individual pockets customized to fit each folder.

I used a 2 inch circle punch for the cut-outs that make it easier to get folders out, then used the punched pieces to make tabs for each folder.

The smaller sets with dies have their own page. The die slips in to the plastic that it came in, cut to size and held shut by stick on velcro dots.

Pin It!
