Inspiration Folder

I decided on starting my own version of the infamous Inspiration Board. If you aren't familiar with them, don't worry. My friends Casee Marie and Megan have great examples on their blogs. Instead of using a board to display inspirational clippings and just some of my favorite things I decided, for now, a folder and sheet protectors would suffice. The one inch folder I already had (I'm sure after sorting through my stuff I'll need a wider one) and I purchased the pack of fifty sheet protectors at Wal-Mart for $3.99. This would also be a great way to put a portfolio together. Maybe you make and sell crafts? It could be a catalog to allow your customers to view the work you've done. I myself will probably have a separate folder for guest blog posts I've done and photos I've had taken. You also can decorate the front of the folder or opt to get one that has that sleeve on the outside which would be fun to spice up.

Besides Pinterest, do you have an inspiration board or folder of your own? If not, what would yours look like?


  1. I love this idea. I'm constantly pulling pages out of magazines, but I've had nowhere to put them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Cute idea, lady! Love this...I've been meaning to make my own inspiration board for above my desk. Maybe I'll make that a project for this weekend :) This binder idea is great, too!


  3. I love how you put your inspiration folder together! So easy yet organized!
