...For your eBooks, that is! Ella Friend Monica McNeill created this adorable binder for her Ella eBooks. It's so cute (and easy!) that we had to share. Read on for her instructions...

"When I hit the print button on my newly acquired Ella eBooks my life was a bit wild, and I needed a quick, simple solution for storage. We are always on the go so I was looking for something that was portable and easy to keep safe from sticky hands.

All you'll need is a binder and a handful of 8-½ x 11" page protectors.

I had an extra binder around that I picked up on clearance at Target just because it was cute and a stack of letter size page protectors. I simply slipped my Ella eBooks two pages at a time into the page protectors and called it done.

But of course, since I am a scrapper I had to spruce it up just a bit! I dug through my scrap binder and pulled out my Noteworthy card for my Making Memories Slice to whip up a fun label in no time. A little bit of adhesive & a few Making Memories alphas later my thrifty binder had a title. In order to separate the different eBooks I cut a 12x12 piece of Stampin' Up! cardstock into 4-inch strips, hole punched the strips and added them to the binder right before the eBooks.

What I love most is that this can be a permanent or temporary solution. Perhaps after I’ve accumulated a few rounds of Ella releases I’ll decide to bind them. Since I haven’t done anything but slip them into page protectors the possibilities are endless!"

What WE love most is how simple and versatile this project is! For more ideas on where (and how) to house your Ella eBooks, check out our article, "Alter Your eBook." Got other ideas? We'd love to see them
