I kept a target face my sister used, because it was in pretty good shape for surviving a half fita shoot.
I also wanted a cool folder for school, so the solution was to make a target folder :D
The target had too many holes to use by itself. But I liked the arrow holes. If anything, they gave it character. Because of the holes, I took an old folder in good condition and used that for the base.
You can use other sheets for a neat folder like this, not just a target. You can use maps, newspapers, book pages, and more!
Step 1: Materials
- a target face (or map, newspaper, comic book, book, etc.)
- paintbrush (medium sized)
- old folder (in okay condition)
- ruler/tape measure
- mod podge (optional)
Step 2: Measure
- Measure the width of the folder (12" for me)
- Measure the width of the pocket of the folder (5" for me)
- Measure the length of the open folder (19" for me)
Add the width of the folder to the width of the pocket. This will be the width of the rectangle you will cut out.
Add an inch to the length of the open folder. This measurement will be the length of the rectangle.
My rectangle was 17" by 20".
Step 3: Mark
Mine was 17" by 20".
Step 4: Cut
There was a conveniently placed arrow hole next to the corner of the rectangle, so I started cutting there. :)
Then, place the folder on top of the rectangle. There is a cut curve next to the pocket in order to let the papers slide to the end of the pocket. Mark and cut a similarly shaped, opposite facing curve at the same height.
