No matter how technologically advanced we become, I still love a good hard copy, nicely organized in a pretty binder. But my issue was my binders weren't pretty. In fact, they were well worn and simply the standard stark white. So to give my binders and office space a bit of a makeover, I decided to wrap my binders in fabric:
This DIY is very similar to the tutorial for our Fabric Covered Shoe Boxes. Not only is it easy and affordable, but it allows you to customize the colors and textures for your space! Customization for a cheaper cost than the store versions?! Gotta love that!
What You'll Need:
I used old, worn 1/2" white binders I already had
Rotary Cutter and Mat OR Scissors
*You could use Fabric Glue, it typically dries clearer, but I found Tacky Glue did the trick, just be sure not to get the stuff on the outside of the binder, depending on the fabric you use it may visible through the fabric*
I found this stripe upholstery fabric in the clearance aisle at Joann's marked down to $4 a yard. Making my 1/2" binder makeover about $1 a piece.
Cut a piece of fabric leaving approx a 1/2"-3/4" around the border.
From there it's time to glue. Start from the center working your way outward. Being sure to pull the fabric somewhat taught and ensuring it goes on straight.
