Classroom Decor: Magazine file with circular labels

We have included circular labels in both of our new Decor Packs – they can be used in many different ways, but today we want to show you how we used them in our photos for the Superhero Decor Pack.  We have attached them to magazine files with ribbon, adding interest and a splash of color to what can sometimes be a dull and boring item in the classroom.  It only takes a few minutes to complete – a fab idea! titleYou will only need a few simple items to put this together: What you needThen, following these super-simple steps you make up your magazine files:

  1. Construct your magazine file as per instructions.Steps 1 & 2
  2. Punch a hole in the top and bottom of you label.
  3. Cut your ribbon to about 35″ long and thread it through the circular label – keeping the ribbon to the back of the label as shown.Steps 3 & 4
  4. Wrap the ribbon through the hole of the magazine file and around the top half of the file.  Tie into a knot as shown as neatly as possible (I’m sure you can do a knot a lot neater than me!!)
  5. Trim the edge off you ribbon to give a neat finish.Steps 5 & 6
  6. Repeat steps 1 – 5 for further magazine files.  Fill the files and add to shelves!

It really is an easy but effective way to brighten up magazine files and add to your overall decor – they can sometimes be hidden under the desk for their dull appearance, but using an idea like this, you can give them a deserved place on any shelf!

  1. What size circle punch did you use to cut these out?

    Also – are these the Flyt magazine files from Ikea? Thanks!

      Hi Daphne, yes they are magazine files from Ikea! I can’t remember exactly what punch size I used, I know it was close between two sizes. The printer you use can make a size difference depending on where it places the margin so you are best to measure from a printed copy.
