Mens Chipboard Folio/Organiser!

Handmade notebook folder

Hi everyone
Today i have a project that is geared towards the Men in your life. Something that i very rarely make. I think its because i don't really have any Men in my life so i tend to forget that other people do. Anyway, i am really pleased with how this turned out & its really simple to make. I made mine from old cereal boxes & its super strong.

I also made the 2 large Notebooks. They were so easy to make. The paper was printed for free online & i used some spare paper from old Notebooks that i had lying around. I just cut it to size, rounded all the corners & used my Reptile glue to seal the tops of the pages together. As i said in one of my tutorials last week, i will never buy anymore notebooks again! There is no need when you can make your own professional looking ones.

This folio organiser has lots of storage pockets & the notebooks can be replaced. I made a slot for them so you just pull them out when they are empty & slot new ones back in. My folio closes with velcro. I did try magnets but with the chipboard & thickness of everything the closure just kept popping open.

I really love this project & it would make a beautiful Gift. You can make them in any style you like. There is also plenty room if you want to add a pen slot. I hope you like it & will make one for the Man or woman in your life! I am sure they would love it.
