My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup

UPDATE 10/3/12 - 
woot! This project was featured on the My Mind's Eye blog and pinned on the MME Pinterest board!

Today's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use Office or Back to School Supplies on your project. I made a writing practice tool out of manilla file folders, index cards, and product by My Minds Eye from the Alphabet Soup girl collection. I have the MME Alphabet Soup boy collection also and will be making another set!
Here are the products I used. I made the box by covering a tea bag box in the matching papers and embellishing it with the matching chip board pieces. The letter rub-ons are by Making Memories.
I used the fold that already is made in the file folder and trimmed them down in to sleeves. Each sleeve has an index card in it to pull out and practice writing the letter on.

The cards I used on the front of each sleeve come as "playing" cards, 2 of each card per pack, and the graphics on them are just adorable.  
Here are some close ups. 
Of course, the "G" card with the red haired girl on it is my absolute favorite!
Here is a shot of the back
I hope you are inspired to make a card, layout, or other project using office/back-to-school supplies and play along with us at Frosted Designs!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I appreciate your comments!

This is so great! What did you use to cut the file tabs? I want to do a similar project for a homeschooling friend.
