How To Create A Folder In Canva

Do you want to organize your designs on Canva? Do you want to separate your creations into different places? Either way, you can create folders on the app. Follow our guide below, and we’ll teach you how to create a new folder within your account on Canva.


When you create a design on Canva, you can find it on the Projects tab on the app by default. As you create more designs, navigating through them can take some time, especially if you create designs for different purposes.

Thankfully, you can create folders on the app to organize your content. You can upload media files or move designs to a folder to segregate them from your other work.

Here’s our guide about creating a folder on the Canva app.

If you want to organize your designs in Canva, you can create folders on the app. Each folder can have up to 200 items for Canva Free accounts, while premium accounts can upload up to a thousand.
