It’s back to school time, and that means a flood of papers will be coming in the door soon. I’m trying to get a jump on the paper clutter with a few organizing strategies, like these color coded labels that can be used on folders.

You know if there is a way to incorporate my Silhouette I’m going to do it, and these labels where no different. I love using it for labels because I can use sticker paper to design them to be any size and I can put my sketch pens to use, which I love. Any time I can let the sketch pens write for me, I’m happy.
To make the labels, I designed a shape that would fit onto my folder tab and in the replicate screen, clicked the fill page option.
I only needed a few labels this time, so I save my label template and then deleted the extras. I added my titles, and then selected which ones I wanted to be my first color.
To do that, I selected all of the design and on the cutting settings selected no cut. Then just select cut for which ones you want to be your first color. Replace your blade with the sketch pen, send to Silhouette and click start. *Remember to write a little with your sketch pen to get the ink flowing before putting them into your machine.*
After the machine had drawn out all of my titles, I left my mat loaded and selected the edge to cut. Simple as that! I added the labels to my folders for my new fridge command center where I’m keeping incoming papers and some for our home office.
Both of the Silhouette products I used to make this project are inclided, along with a lot of other goodies, in this months Silhouette Portrait and CAMEO bundles.
