This is my first class that I'll be teaching and I'm totally excited! They have asked me to do a quarterly class as the "Disney specialist" --- woooohooo!

Love it, Joy....very cool idea!

Okay, here is the supply list for the class:

You will need cardstock and patterned paper. Scraps are fine, as each rolodex card is 2 1/4" x 4" and you won't need much. I used 3 diff. colors of cardstock, and 6 patterned papers, but you can repeat pp's or whatever.

Ribbon, fiber, and/or ric-rac - again, scraps are fine as you won't need alot of length. A veriety of 4-6 types is good.

Eyelets or brads - can be plain or shaped

Prima flowers - if you want them... I didn't have any in the right colors

1 sheet MM alphabet stickers (or you can use the MM font stamps)

Additional stickers, rub-ons, or embellishments

1 rolodex (Rolodex “open petite” card file, recommended)

http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?prodCatType=0&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=10826&cmArea=SEARCH

(If you really want to go all out, you can do an A-Z of Disney using one of the larger rotary files, with one card for each letter.... but that is a much longer project)

Tools used:
Xacto knife and cutting mat
Scissors
Stapler & staples
Mickey head punch (large, small, and swirl)
ink for distressing
Chalk (optional)
adhesive (tape runner and Xyrom)

I also recommend the rolodex punch, which will make the slots in the bottom... it's much easier than using a xacto knife to cut out.
http://www.staples.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/StaplesProductDisplay?prodCatType=0&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&langId=-1&productId=97300&cmArea=SEARCH

You can make yours any theme you want -- MM, Princesses, one for each theme park, etc... it's really up to you! I just stuck with MM for my sample because it's universally appealing and an easy starting point. I plan to make a few more with some of my scraps from my monthly scrap kits. It's a great way to use up scraps and makes such a lovely gift! Especially for Mother's Day, if you have an old-school mom who doesn't use a PDA or cell phone to store phone #s.

Hey guys -- don't make me blush! This is not my original idea and I cannot take credit for it. I've seen examples on 2Peas and Ebay. I just added my own style to it :)

Disney Altered Rolodex

You will be making 6 rolodex index cards.

Have these items ready:
6 pieces of 4x6 cardstock: 2 in each color (we used yellow, white, and red)
6 pieces of 4x6 patterned paper: 1 in each pattern (okay to duplicate, as you wish!)
6-8 assorted lengths of ribbon, fiber, ric-rac (approx. 4 inches each)
1 sheet of decorative stickers
1 sheet alphabet stickers
2-3 decorative eyelets or brads

Tools needed:
Sharp-tip scissors, or blade/mat set
Scissors
Adhesive (stickier is better)
Inkpad
Die-cut punches (Mickey heads in assorted sizes)
Mickey Mouse themed rubber stamps
Chalk (optional)

Select your base cardstock for each card. Take one of the index cards provided with your rolodex and trace it onto your cardstock. Using sharp-tip scissors or a cutting blade and mat, cut out the 6 index cards.

You’ll be using a variety of techniques to embellish each index card. Feel free to mix and match these designs. The following instructions are based on the display sample:

Card #1:
• Trace index card onto patterned paper #1 and cut out.
• About halfway across, on the diagonal, make a straight cut.
• Adhere this piece on top of your cardstock base.
• Adhere 1 to 2 decorative stickers, rub-ons, or diecut/punchies.
• Take 2-3 small pieces of ribbon, fold in half at a slight angle, and staple to right outside edge of card on top. Leave a tiny bit over the edge.
• Take a length of fiber and adhere across width of card, about 1/3 of the way down from the top.
• Take 2 Mickey head punches and adhere to the top edge, over the index tab. They will overlap slightly at an angle.
• Take your alphabet stickers and adhere E-H on top of the Mickey head punches.
• Using your inkpad, brush lightly over the top edges of the Mickey ears, and all along exposed edges of the card.

Card #3:
• Cut a 1 inch tall strip of patterned paper.
• Adhere this piece across the width of your cardstock base, about in the middle of the card. Trim the edges as needed.
• Over the top seam between patterned paper and cardstock, adhere a length of ric-rac.
• Trim the ends of the ribbon.
• Adhere 1 to 2 decorative stickers, rub-ons, or diecut/punchies.
• Take 1-2 small pieces of ribbon, fold in half at a slight angle, and staple to left outside edge of card. Leave a tiny bit over the edge.
• Take 2 Mickey head punches and adhere to the top edge, over the index tab. They will overlap slightly at an angle.
• Take your alphabet stickers and adhere I-L on top of the Mickey head punches.
• Using your inkpad, brush lightly over the top edges of the Mickey ears, and all along exposed edges of the card.

Card #4:
• Cut out two pieces of patterned paper #4, about 1 1/2 inches wide each, and 2 1/2 inches tall.
• Adhere these two pieces to the right and left sides of the cardstock, leaving a vertical strip of cardstock showing, about 1 inch wide down the middle. Trim edges.
• On a diagonal, adhere contrasting ribbon.
• Trim the ends of the ribbon.
• Adhere 1 to 2 decorative stickers, rub-ons, or diecut/punchies.
• Take 1 piece of ribbon, fold in half at a slight angle, and staple to top edge of card. Leave a tiny bit over the edge.
• Take 2 Mickey head punches and adhere to the top edge, over the index tab. They will overlap slightly at an angle.
• Take your alphabet stickers and adhere M-P on top of the Mickey head punches.
• Using your inkpad, brush lightly over the top edges of the Mickey ears, and all along exposed edges of the card.

Card #5:
• Trace index card onto patterned paper #5 and cut out.
• On a diagonal, trim off the lower left corner of the paper.
• Adhere this piece on top of your cardstock base. You’ll see a corner of your cardstock peeking through.
• Stamp Mickey Mouse images over top of patterned paper in contrasting ink.
• Adhere a sticker, rub-on, or diecut/punchie in the empty corner.
• Take 1-2 small pieces of ribbon, fold in half at a slight angle, and staple to top left edge of card. Leave a tiny bit over the edge.
• Take 2 Mickey head punches and adhere to the top edge, over the index tab. They will overlap slightly at an angle.
• Take your alphabet stickers and adhere O-T on top of the Mickey head punches.
• Using your inkpad, brush lightly over the top edges of the Mickey ears, and all along exposed edges of the card.

Card #6:
• Trace index card onto patterned paper #6 and cut out.
• Tear down the middle, lengthwise. Ink or chalk the torn edge, if desired.
• Adhere this piece on top of your cardstock base.
• Adhere ribbon on the right side, vertically. Trim ends.
• Punch holes for eyelets or brads along the length of ribbon.
• Insert and set brads or eyelets.
• Adhere 1 to 2 decorative stickers, rub-ons, or diecut/punchies.
• Take 1 small pieces of ribbon, fold in half at a slight angle, and staple to left outside edge of card. Leave a tiny bit over the edge.
• Take 2 Mickey head punches and adhere to the top edge, over the index tab. They will overlap slightly at an angle.
• Take your alphabet stickers and adhere U-Z on top of the Mickey head punches.
• Using your inkpad, brush lightly over the top edges of the Mickey ears, and all along exposed edges of the card.

Those of you who have posted your Rolodex projects have created lovely pieces of work. bubbasmom99's original altered Rolodex was the one that inspired me to create one for my boss. I did not make a Disney related Rolodex, instead I have made Keys to Success.posted on TwoPeas (http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/pg.asp?gallery=1&cmd=display&layout_id=1006445).

That's terrific! Not colorful and fun like the Disney ones but subdued as suitable for an office and yet still WAY more fun than a plain one! Good JOB!

Joy, this is an amazing and versatile project - And fun too. I came along months after the initial post and still able to learn from you. Thank you so much!
