The people over at Astrobright asked me to create a back-to-school project using their paper. It’s appropriately called Astrobright because the paper is BRIGHT :) Not a bad thing in my opinion, I’m definitely not afraid of a bit of color. Since this was a back-to-school project I made folder tabs.
The how-to: If you want perfect tabs, I would use a craft cutter (like a Epic 6, Silhouette, or cricut). However, if you’ve got some impressive scissor skills, you can also just cut the shape you want. After you’ve cut the shape that you want, glue everything together and write the subject on the front. Then staple/glue it onto some manilla folders, or you can use it on a notebook to separate your notes, etc.
Astrobright paper is smooth like printer paper and comes in a variety of weights (i.e. thickness). It also has 23 bright colors in the collection.
