Vintage File Board Cover

Hi, Connie here with a really cool project. It’s a Cover, for a lack of a better word, to be placed in front of a Vintage File Board. The Self-Laminating Pouches-cards XL made this task easy to achieve. And I almost left out FUN!!!

I keep track of all my design work and dates so I don’t forget. It is also a great place to keep track of products, magazines, and other industry information that is important to me. This can be easily re-designed by using pattern paper and calendar pages for the inside.

Vintage File Board Supplies

Gather some of my HomeHobby products and faithful E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser as my foundation. Also, an Alphabet stamp set, and a Calendar stamp set, together with the Archival Black ink. My project is centered around an 8 x 10″ vintage photo.

Vintage Cover Instructions

  1. Stamp all the letters, months and numbers, on white cardstock, with black ink, and trim out. Using the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser, mat the vintage photo to the black cardstock.
  2. Add the title (MONTHLY) to the front of the photo with the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser. Apply Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″ to a strip of cardstock.
  3. Remove the liner and add each letter on the cardstock strip creating the word, ASSIGNMENTS. This makes it easier to get the placement of each letter correct.
  4. Adhere under the word MONTHLY with the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Inside Pages and Cover

  1. Use the Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/2″ to secure each month and year stamped cut out onto each area on the page.
  2. When the pages are completed set aside and let’s work on the cover.
  3. Insert the Vintage Photo inside the Self-Laminating Pouches/Cards XL (making sure it is straight and the margins on all sides are equal). Gently pull the release sheet back. I used a Hockey puck to rub back and forth for a smooth finish. It worked great!
  4. Lastly, make a strip for the top of the cover to be punched. With the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4″, adhere both the front and back of the Vintage Photo Cover. Punch two holes so it will fit on the Vintage File Board.
