I've done a long overdue bit of organizing with these small file folders made from scrapbook papers.

I have this "broken latch" plastic box where I store my stamp placement templates.  A Misti doesn't work with wood block stamps.  I've created quite the collection of these templates.

It takes precious playtime to sift through them looking for the right one for the job.  

So it was time to organize them.  These beautiful scrapbook papers are mostly too busy for my taste for a scrapbook page.  But they are working fine for mini file folders.

I made them with my 1-2-3 Punch Board.  Directions are included in the booklet that comes with the board.  They can be made to any size you want. 

They're so cute, don't you think?

Here they are all labeled and doing their job.  They measure just 5.5" wide, 5" high.

It is so easy now to find a template without so much time wasted sifting through them all.

I put this little chore off just long enough to think of using these little file folders made with the punch board.

These folders look great. I have not heard of a 123 Punch Board looks like a very useful piece of equipment. The papers may be colourful but I think they are beautiful. .How clever of you to get so organized

Ahh! Such pretty organization! It does take a bit of time to get organized but pays off in the end! I have not heard of the 123 punch board but needed to look it up. Seems like a fun piece to have!

Great idea and use of scrapbook papers. Being organized really is wonderful and allows for more creative time instead of frustrated wasted time searching. Now I "need" a 1,2,3 punch board! Creative Organized Bliss Dear...<3

These papers are sublime. I wouldn't know what to do with them except bring them out and admire them every so often, but you've solved it by making these folders which you will see every time you search for your templates. I've no idea what stamp placement templates are or what a 1-2-3 Punch Board is but they both look intriguing enough to make me go over to ask Mr. Google right now.
