How To Make Your Binders Beautiful - For Free

It's time to make our binders beautiful, people!  This pink and black polka-dot set is my first one, and it is free on Teachers Pay Teachers.  You can get it at my store, appropriately called... Light Bulbs and Laughter.  Yep.  You will need to have PowerPoint to open the file.  Here is what you will see:

This cover page.  These pink and black covers are for my dear teacher friend Yolie.  She is a fierce and feisty defender and teacher of children, and she loves pink and black (and Betty Boop, but that's another story).

 An explanation of why we need those binders beautified.  Those white borders mustbebanished.  At least on the bigger binders.

Detailed instructions.  Some of you won't need them at all. Some of you may.  I just wanted an excuse to make really big polka-dots!

Two choices of covers, with and without the black rectangle thingy at the bottom.  Some
people like to put their name there, some prefer their cover without it. 
 
The text boxes will be there, waiting for you.  Download the gorgeous cursive font that I suggested, HERE (it's free for personal use), or any old one your heart desires.

 This first one has cut lines that are perfect for my bazillion two-inch binders.  However,  the spine width is 2 1/4 inches.   It can 
be cut slightly smaller, 
or bigger by 1/4 inch on each side if you have those huge
 3-inch binders to beautify.

I know, this is getting boring.  Hang in there just a little longer!

This fourth spine page is for one inch binders.  It measures 7/8 of an inch wide.

This is for those tiny little half inch binders.  They don't hold enough to be worth much.  But I have a few.

This guy is for the BACK of your binder.  I know.  Most people wouldn't even think of putting a back on.  But someone requested it, and it does make
the binder look really professional...

You can also use it to make a different spine or cover.  Just add your own black
shape and type away!



Whew.  If you made it all the way to the bottom of this post, you deserve a prize.  So go and download these binder covers.  If pink and black are not your thing, I have some others on their way to TpT very soon.  Remember to leave feedback, and follow my store for more polka-dot happiness, and other stuff, too.

Thanks for beautifying your binders with me,
