Custom File Folders Video Tutorial - Marjie Kemper

Welcome! Today I’m sharing a 7-minute video tutorial on creating fun one-of-a-kind file folders using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics with stamps, stencils and ink.  Click here or on the image below to watch the video. If you enjoy the video, please do ‘like’ and subscribe to my YouTube channel.




I just came back from a conference in Utah and it was fun to have all my workshop papers sorted in such colorful folders.


Video Tutorial - Create Custom File Folders with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Paints (Marjie Kemper)


Here’s a peek at them individually  I enjoyed choosing a focal image for each one, and unifying them with the stenciled gentlemen/numbers in the filmstrip along the top and bottom of each (that’s a favorite Andy Skinner stencil).   These types of projects that allow me to use so many of the items in my stash are really fun to make.
