Organisers, Notebooks & Journals

Expanding Organiser File

I’m always looking for more storage ideas and these Expanding Organisers are just perfect for what I had in mind.


These measure 6 x 8.1/4 so plenty of room and as its expandable with the long string fastening they can hold lots of stuff.


To make these Organisers you will need…

8.1/4 x 11.5/8  (A4) Card stock for main case

Score along the 11.5/8 side at 5.1/2, 5.5/8, 5.3/4, 5.7/8, 6, 6.1/8 & 6.1/4

8 pieces of 5.1/2 x 8.1/4 card for the dividers

2 pieces of 5.1/2 x 8 card for the sides.

Score along the 8′ side at every 1/2′

8.1/4 x 4.1/2 card for lid.

Score along the 4.1/2 side at every 1/8′ this is optional as I wanted it as an effect.

Die cut a small circle from some card and also the same from some acetate.

Roughly 34′ of string.

1 brad.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I’ve made them.

I’ve kept mine plain but you can decorate yours any way you like.



Hope you’ve enjoyed this fun storage idea.

Happy crafting
