Do you know what is a "Sharing File", now hot in SNS? It is a handmade file that you can exchange or give it as a gift, filled with stationary such as letter sets, stickers, and masking tapes. This time, we have thought about how to make cute files in a fun and an easy way. Why don't you make the one and only Sharing File by combining different masking tapes and envelopes?

These are the materials for the cover

You can stick the tapes diagonally also. Please design it freely!

Inner storage parts, accordion pockets of the mini envelopes.

If you add handmade sharing items, it raises its originality! Put a ribbon on the clips, or make a garland using masking tapes... It can become something filled with thoughts and love for the person receiving it.

Drill a hole with a drilling punch and pass the rubber through. In addition, we used an eyelet to give a touch.
