I don’t know about you guys, but every year I am so surprised at how much paper clutter we seem to accumulate at the beginning of the school year!  I really wanted to organize it somehow.  I picked up two accordion style plastic folders and plan to use each pocket for a different subject and one for schedules, keepsakes, etc.  I really wanted to make them fun and bright.

I had the opportunity to use Astrobrights cardstock and it is amazing!  It is vibrant, thick and comes in 23 different colors.

I decided on the vintage color scheme.  Isn’t it so pretty? I also love that the package is easy to open and everything stays all nice and neat in the plastic!

I printed out some cute labels and laminated them.  They were still so pretty after I laminated them!  Finally, I glued them to the front of the folder and we were good to go!  This weekend I plan on working on the file labels.  Baby steps!
