In the personal Library of Stitches class students are discussing creating their own covers for the lessons and I thought I would post images of two folders I have covered in samplers.
Even thought both have beads on them they have not lost any which I find surprising as I used to hold teaching samples in them and they were carted about quite a bit.
Both were samplers that took on a life of their own. I liked them so I pieced them together and made a cover for an A4 ring binder. I have found over the years that the 3 ring and 4 ring binders stand up to more wear and tear and can hold more weight than a two ring binder. Samples inside the folder are simply stored in plastic sheets.
These were made 13 years ago and have stood up to quite a bit of wear and tear.
Unfortunately they are a bit warped now as they are overloaded
