I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but it is somewhat purse related.
I made this for my mom as the regular coupon organizers are too small for her all her coupons. It measures 4.5" tall, 4.5" in depth and 8" wide with an extra pocket. I made all 30 of the dividers, which are just made from posterboard with file labels. So, here it is:



Let me know what you think.

That's soooo pretty. I love the flowers and the colors. Now your mom can smile every time she goes to look for her coupons. I know I would.

Sorry for the long wait, but without further ado: here it is. I hope you can see the images clear enough. If you have any questions, let me know and I will answer them.
Here is the pattern (I have provided the measurements): 




Velcro I find to be the best closure, as buttons are a pain to close and open. I used stick on velcro so, I didn't sew it on. If you use the sew on velcro, I would recommend sewing it after step 8.
