For years I have tried different ways to make sure that my kids know which folder is for which school subject. We’ve color-coded. We have written the school subject on the front in permanent marker. But inevitably, one of them brings home the wrong folder and can’t get their homework done properly. I thought maybe making some giant school subject stickers for the front of the folders might work. Hope springs eternal, right? I used Cricut Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock to make a set of school subject folders to help us get organized for the school year.

HOW TO USE STICKER CARDSTOCK TO MAKE SCHOOL FOLDERS
I thought about how to walk you through the process of creating the design in Design Space when I realized it would be way easier to just show you in a video. I screen-recorded myself working in the mobile version of Design Space and then actually adding the design to the folders.
COLORING THE FOLDER STICKERS
Since the Smart Paper stickers are cardstock, you can color in the stickers however you would like! Let your kids have fun personalizing the stickers with crayons, colored pencils, or markers. You can do this before or after you add the stickers to the folders.
