Ahhh Design to create this Index Card Folder.
dirty, grimy, minimal, and abstract. Her planner pages, some of which are for sale and some of which are available as free downloads on her web site, reflect that style, and are created in a very handmade-looking fashion with a typewriter, somewhat tilt-y graphics, and random doodle-y designs. I find them kind of appealing!
Amanda's tutorial folds out into three sections. You can put whatever papers you like inside. I put her month-at-a-glance planner page to the left here, and her week-at-a-glance planner page in the middle, so you can see how the folder might be used with Amanda's own designs.
In her tutorial, Amanda uses two pieces of scrapbook paper and sews them together so that there is a pretty pattern on both the inside and outside of the folder. For the second folder I created, I used a piece of double-sided scrapbook paper. It made for beautifully coordinated colors, but I'm not sure if the single layer of paper will hold up as well to wear-and-tear as the double layer.
For my third index card folder, I went back to stitching two pieces of paper back-to-back, and I think the two layers will definitely hold up better.the planner I currently use. I wonder if I could get used to something so basic and stripped down from my current notebook planner?
