Ocean Themed Travel File Folders

 Here is another version of my travel file folders. For this project I found the perfect double-sided 12x12 package of paper at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  Because the papers are double sided it required less work to decorate and I think overall it looks better than my last set of travel file folders.  This time for the closure I decided to go with velcro tabs on a burlap ribbon (purchased at BFC)...much easier to use than a tied ribbon.
These are the fronts of the folders.  I took special care to feature a starfish on the front of each one.
This is the inside of the first folder.  The little waxed bags in the pocket are for saving little souvenirs like flowers or leaves. The pocket card can be used to list purchases and receipts can be held with the cat paper clip.
As with the last set of travel file folders, I decorated a mini composition tablet to record my thoughts while on the trip.
This final travel folder has photo frames tacked on with washi tape.  I'm not sure exactly what size my instant camera photos will be so I left room for adjustments.
Except for the washi tape, I purchased all of the supplies at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  You might not be able to find these exact items (some are from my ancient stash) but look around BFC and I'm sure you will find what you need.  Okay, that's it for this post. (I tried to keep it short....REALLY!)
