Hello all I don’t know about you, but I know I have a few hot spots (problem areas) in my house that I’m in the process of trying to find a simple and useful solution to fix the problem. One of my hot spots is in the kitchen where I always seem to have piles of mail, notes from school, invitations, etc.
May Arts Ribbon- 365 series 2” color 10 (black/ivory stripes)

Lighter (to seal ribbon ends)
Step one: Use your glue glider pro and apply to all edges on the front of the file folder.
Step two: Place you paper aligning the bottom edge of the paper with the folder and press down. There is no need to cut the paper before.
Cut the ribbon with enough excess to fold and glue around edges. Always seal the ends of your ribbon.
Measure and cut Glue Arts ribbon adhesive. Place the adhesive on your ribbon. Hold the ribbon and run your finger down the ribbon adhesive strip pressing firmly.
Simply pull protective plastic off and attach to your folder.
Doesn’t it look great? Here are more pictures of the other file folders I completed. I have a folder for each individual: Mom, Dad, Dakotah, Makayla, Makinley, and other optional folders like coupons and mail. When I bring in the mail I sort it between mine, my husbands and the left over in the mail folder if I don’t have time to sit and open it all. Things I put in the kids folders are homework project papers and other important papers to keep track of them, etc.
It’s not just functional, it adds pizzazz to the kitchen and keeps the piles off the counters
