New Tutorial and Kits Done! The Document Holder...

Good Morning Everyone!

I just finished writing the tutorial and kitting this really cool project that I would like to share with you.

I call the project...Organization 101: The Document Holder!  This is a no fuss, no muss project.  Simple to make and VERY useful!

The Document Holder is a total necessity around my house!  Where do you put all this papers, pictures, bills and ideas scribbled on napkins that seem to form stacks all over the house!?!  Well, The Document Holder solves that issue.  It's a rigid storage box that is labeled on the spine to easily identify the contents, tabbed on the inside for organization and will fit perfectly on a shelf or bookcase.  A Great Idea for Home or Office!  With this unique dowel binding you can SERIOUSLY put tons of stuff in The Document Holder and get it off your desk!

The Document Holder

This project is offered three ways... a tutorial that you can add your own ingredients to make... or a cut kit which means that all the pieces are precut for a perfect fit.  Comes with with a Tim Holtz Correspondence paper pad, pre-taped structure strips, the metal label pull, and the divider papers, just about everything needed to make the project.  Just add glue and a few common tools... or last, the pre-cut kit with the chipboard pieces and everything mentioned above MINUS the Correspondence paper pad so that you can add your own patterned paper to make it yours.

All the kits and tutorials can be found in my shop by clicking  HERE for the tutorial
