About 4 years ago I made a giant hanging file folder out of cardboard and fabric. Guess, what? It's still holding together.
I needed something similar, but smaller in my living room to hold magazines and books. I took some pieces of cardboard that already had creases in them and put them to good use.
I drew a line 2" from the bottom to be the bottom of the pocket
Using a yard stick, I scored the line with a box cutter and then used the ruler to help fold on the line.
I did the same to create a crease vertically and then mark some tabs to go into the back piece.
I cut the card board with strong scissors and then taped the bottom of the sides to the bottom of the pocket.
9.75" tall, but my other is 7.75" tall - The folders are a little taller on this new version because I decided not to cut the top of the cardboard and leave it as it was. The taller version hides what's inside, which could be a pro or a con
sides are 3" at top and 2" at bottom
Once I spaced where the pockets would go, I used a box cutter and scissors to make slits big enough for the tabs to go through. Then I tapes the sides down with packing tape (duct tape would probably be a better choice, though.)
I hot glued on these label holders from Hobby Lobby - they're considered paper embellishments, so they are included in the 50% sale occasionally.
