Mini Folder DIY - Maritza Lisa: Create your own mini folders with this free download. Perfect for holding wedding vows, teachers' gifts and back-to-school!

Did I mention how much I love shopping for back to school anything? Happy place. Couple that with a mini version in happy colors? Sigh. So, to save myself a few dollars, and because I wanted to make my own, I decided to try out these mini folders. There’s a pocket on one side and the other side has 2 holes for punched paper which can be secured with brads. Check out the Silhouette Studio v3 cut file which is available for free download (at the bottom of this post). I basically turned the grid on, and manipulated a number of rectangles into the final shape. The dashed lines can be removed – just ungroup and delete them. I added them as a guide for where the scoring and folding guides.
