At the beginning of the school year there is so much paperwork! Some needs to stay at home, some signed and returned. I created a generic folder to use every year for the first week of school.
To make these, I purchased "Welcome to 3rd Grade" Postcards from the parent teacher store (36 cards for $4). Next, I went to Walgreens and picked up folders without prongs which are currently on sale 4 for $1. Total cost for a set of 20: under $10- (cheaper if you already have the supplies) and they can be used for years!
I put double sided tape on the postcard to stick it to the front. I added my labels to the inside pockets and laminated the folders (flat and open!).
You will have to use scissors to score the inside- break the lamination so they can use the pockets!
