Hi there

I made these before I had a blog so I didn't write instructions or take during photos. I used pasteboard (a dense cardboard from art shops) and cut them out into the sides and base, which were then taped together with masking tape.

I made regular fabric (in this case an Amy Butler print) into bookcloth using this method:

It was then a matter of gluing it on the sides, allowing to dry and folding over the edges.

I used a rivet gun to attach the label holders.

Hope that helps!

"I made these magazine files from cardboard and covered in fabulous Amy Butler fabric. I added the label holders (I bought mine at a bookbinding supplier but I’ve seen reasonable versions at craft stores) but I’m clearly a bit slack in the actual labelling department since I know what the contents are.

For some reason I like this as well. Initially overwhelming, but something great about it.
