it's far (far) from perfect and the front little flap is crazy crooked, but i decided to use it for a couple weeks to see if i could live with it and - surprise surprise - i'm doing just fine with the imperfections :)
i'm loving all the little envelopes in the middle keeping me organized! i was worried that it would all fall out of the top with the envelopes open, but with the flap on the top, there hasn't been a problem at all.
in defense of the expensive etsy ones, i would totally charge lots of money to make another one of these. it wasn't hard, it just took forever and i'm not really that great at projects that take multiple days :)
