Covered folder featuring Morlich, by Osborn & Little,Fernie Grey by Moon, and Nairna Crocus by Voyage
Give office folders and boxes an overhaul by covering with stylish tartan fabrics. These covered folders look very smart and are an extra idea taken from the November issue of Country Homes & Interiors. Follow these simple instructions below to discover how to make.
You will need
Fabric – about 1 x 0.5m (we used Morlich, by Osborne & Little , Fernie Grey by Moon, and Nairna Crocus by Voyage)
Two pieces of complementary coloured card, measured and cut to fit the insides of the front and back of the folder minus 1cm all around.
Simply lay out the fabric wrong side facing. Place the open folder on top of the fabric and fold over the edges to enclose, trimming any excess fabric to a 3cm overlap on the inside. Unfold the fabric, spread a thin layer of glue over the front and back of the folder and reposition back on the fabric. Smooth the fabric into place to remove air holes. Put a thin layer of glue around the inside edges and stretch and glue the fabric to the insides. When dry, take two pieces of ribbon and glue then to the inside of the long edge of the folder, facing outwards. These with be used to tie the folder sides together. Finally glue the card on to the insides of the folder to cover any rough edges.
