Easy Chalkboard File Folder Labels

Do Less With More Focus

Sometime it seems we try to do these amazing things, when in fact we could focus a little more and achieve greater outcome. This weeks organization project was just that.
I needed file folders I could put a description or client name on the top of with a date when necessary. I wanted to re-use these folders but I still wanted them to look great.
Chalkboard is the hottest label right now, I cut these fancy labels for things all the time.
Why not on folders too?
Chalkboard File Folder Labels cut on the Silhouette

here's the tweak
  1. Draw a rectangle shape with rounded corners to fit your tab. (red circle) I created these 3.5 inches wide by 1/2 inch tall.
  2. Then use your cut tool, (blue circle) to cut off bottom edge to make shape flat on bottom. Make sure your unfilled shape is toggled to treat as solid.
Once shape is completed replicate as many times as needed.
That's it doing less with more focus! Happy Tweaking!
