Project Instructions


Step 1 Use paper trimmer to cut pocket folders in half along fold line. Set aside half of each folder for future use. (Note: If pocket edge was cut open, secure along outside edge with transparent tape.)

Step 2 Position Elmer's® tri-fold foam display board open, on work surface. Refer to photo to position two folder halves on left foam board panel and two on right. Mount each with the tape runner.

Step 3 To make file folders into pockets, use transparent tape along both short ends. Use scissors to cut off lids of boxes. On center panel, refer to photo to position folders, boxes and notepads. Attach boxes with Elmer’s® Glue Spots. Attach note pads and folders with the tape runner.

Step 4 Use computer and printer to make labels as desired. Trim labels with paper trimmer and attach to pockets with tape runner.

Step 5 To cover boxes, use ruler to measure and paper trimmer to cut pieces from leftover pocket folders to cover fronts and sides. Attach pieces with tape runner. (Note: If boxes are too deep, place scraps of cardboard to fill bottom.)
