So when I saw that the first weekly challenge over at Bowl Full of Lemons was to make a home management binder, I was excited. I actually have one I have been using for over a year now, that could use an overhaul. I also knew this would be a great time to put together a mail center as they go hand in hand in my mind. When my monitor bit the dust it made it hard to really do much with my binder, so I started with the mail center.
First I located a basket that would be perfect, and it was just housing unread books on my husbands night stand. Then I gathered supplies to decorate some file folders.
|Next time I would use mod podge for my adhesive the spray glue was very smelly.|
I traced the folders onto the paper, cut out the paper, and glued it to the outside of the folders.
Here it is in use. It sits right next to the fridge in the kitchen which is where I always sort the mail. Now instead of stacks taking up space on our counter, each peice of paper has a place.
There is also room for my binder behind the files when it is finished. I hope to share it with you this weekend.
