The gears were turning in my brain and I recalled earlier seeing "project boxes" from the office supply store. Those places are number two after a craft store truly! I had no excuse to buy them the first time around but I knew that my other favorite all time products, command strips, made a special clip that secures papers. Bingo! I had project boxes!
I had lots of vinyl to decorate them for each girl and they each fit quiet a large stack of papers as well as pens and markers and whatever else you might want. Mine were simple ones with no dividers, and only about and inch and a half deep. They were plenty big to clip papers and small notebook to though.

These pieces were simple designs that layered well. I vetoed the other choices that weren't ;)

To make sure each clip was in the right place I made a stack of papers, put on the clips them put them onto the case. When I had it lined up the way I wanted it, I simply peeled off the backing strip and pressed it down firmly. I also prepared the surface by wiping with rubbing alcohol to be sure they would stick tight.
