File Folder Organizer

I had seen a mini album tutorial made with a file folder and so I put one together.  I showed it to a friend of mine and she thought it would be cool if it was designed to be a mini planner.  So I took the basic tutorial I found and revamped it.  I LOVE the way it turned out!!!  I found the tutorial here.  My friend wanted an envelope to put receipts and returns.  For the "receipts" I used a return envelope that came in a bill.  I covered it with scrap paper.  I used a template and made a coin envelope for the "returns" envelope.   I used velcro tabs on the envelopes for easy closure and opening.  She also wanted a "notes" and "to do" lists.  I created these in photoshop and printed them out.  I used cardstock as a backing and stapled them together.  Than I covered the top with scrap paper.  I added a mini calendar on one of the pockets (which I created in Photoshop and printed) as well as a place for some post-it-notes.  I also added a mini pocket and some decorated paper clips.  These are for special things that need to be put somewhere so they don't get lost.
