Memorabilia Folders

I saw a great idea on Your Memory Collection and I had to make a set for myself right away. I even found the envelopes I needed in our office. Basically, it's just a set of envelopes, one for each month. You use them to hold any memorabilia or ephemera for each corresponding month. Now I have some where to put ticket stubs, maps of museums, etc. as I collect them throughout the year. At the end of the year Tammy suggest pulling out the things you've collected and storing them in a plastic bag with the year on it.

It seems like I am always hunting for random bits I want to include on pages and I never seem to find them when I need them. No, I find them months later and then quickly misplace them again. I have lots of little piles around my office and I know this is going to make a huge difference for me.

Here are some close of ups of how I decorated the envelopes. It was a a quick and easy project! I might have put it off for a little bit but Maryanne's Online Crop was this weekend, and it was just the motivation I needed to get it done now! I used only large paper scraps and leftover stickers and used up a lot of odds and ends. The month title stickers I've had for almost eight years, so nice to finally put them too good use!
