Hostess club folders

So every year, I make a folder for my hostesses when they start a new club year. In the past, I took a white folder and stamped the front. This year, Kim showed us a great thing that she did for her hostesses (I wish I could show you hers It was GOJUS! thanks Kim for sharing the idea and pattern). I took it and made it match yesterdays alligator purse in that I used the same stamp set and Black, Red, and White. Kim put in paper, ink, marker and punch inventory sheets in her last pockets and a wish list in the 3rd pocket. I added a Ribbon Inventory sheet to the 4th pocket and a catalog index to the back of my wishlist. The first pocket had names of people in my hostess club, with the month they are hostess along with phone numbers so they call and remind each other that we are meeting each month. They take the phone number list, but otherwise the folder stays at my house so they know each month what they already have at home and don't duplicate. I then use the first 2 pockets to put supplies for our monthly meeting and monthly special flyers in. I hope you enjoy and thank you again Kim for the fabulous idea! Oh and that is a tailored bow!

Stamp Sets: Eastern Blooms
