They are not just good for regular note-taking; they can be used for a variety of projects such as scrapbooks, cards, picture frames, calendars, envelopes and many more.

How to Choose Embossing Document folders
Embossing is a type of decorative tool that is applied using ink on the surface of a folded document or piece of card stock. There are two basic ways to emboss; one is with a brush and the other is by using an embossing machine. The type of embossing material you will use will depend on what you are going to do with it. If you are just going to label a bunch of folders with some beautiful designs, all you need is a very light embossing agent. These embossed folders are ideal for card making, scrapbooking and paper crafting.
To apply an embossed cardstock, you will first need to purchase a strong embossing kit that contains the ink, applicator and brushes. Then you will need to gather your supplies – eraser, ink, paper, fabric or card stock, scissors, glue and an embossing folder. Next, you must place the folded piece of card stock on a table or counter. Next, you should apply an ink source that is appropriate for the size of the card stock; for example, if you are making a big envelope, you should get a small ink tube and apply it to an appropriate area of the card stock by following the ink instructions printed on the package.
