I have a small two drawer filing cabinet. It is not enough for all warranties, medical records, pet information, etc. So I took a Walmart dish drainer and created another that was portable.
I went to The Graphics Fairy and copied off old photos and such. And then I started arranging them on plain manilla folders (cheap by the box) and gluing them on.
I created some for holidays so I could slip decorating and craft ideas inside and go back and use them later.
You are limited only by your imagination. This would be a fun project for children to keep their papers in from school.
These were lots of fun to make. And I doubt you'll find a cheaper way to file important documents or simply decorating and craft and gardening ideas.
I printed out favorite quotes and backed them with small pieces of scrapbook paper I keep. (Save those scraps. You never know when you might need them!)
The files fit perfectly inside the dish drainer. You might want to take a file folder with you to buy the dish drainer to make sure it is a good fit, as they come in varying sizes. Or you may already have a dish drainer sitting around. Put it to a more creative use if you're not draining dishes in them.
