Leah Fung’s Address Card File

On the blog today we’re welcoming Contributing Editor Leah Fung with a quick, and oh-so-fun etc. idea.

I came across this cool address card file that used to be sold at Anthropologie.com. At first, I was bummed to find out it was no longer available. But then I thought, “Hmmm, I think I can do that”.

So using Scrapbook Factory Deluxe, which is a very easy to use digital scrapbooking program, I created my own address cards and index tabs. I printed the address cards on plain white cardstock then cut them out using my paper trimmer. After that, I adhered strips of heavy weight patterned paper along the top and bottom of each (adhering behind the address card) just to perk them up.

For the index cards, I printed letters onto cardstock then punched out tab shapes and adhered them to blocks of the same type of cardstock. I added a staple to each tab just for fun.

I made these address cards for my desk, so I used pretty patterned papers and flowers to embellish. But I think this card file idea would work well for men too – just switch out the pretty prints with something more masculine or even just cardstock.  If you want to give it a try, come on over to my blog where you can download the address cards (and index prints) to print.  You can also adjust the size of the cards and tabs before printing if you like. 

Here are the sources for the products I used: Patterned Paper: Pine Cone Press. Flower: Prima. Button: Making Memories. Tab punch: Stampin’Up. Mini staple: Tim Holtz. Have fun! Leah
