Changing ALL folder icons

Goodevening! I was trying to change ALL of my default folder icons.
I want it to look like this.. (credits to NEXTLOVER for the images, hehe)



I read the Folder Icon.. followed it, and also.. Open Folder Icon
i was successfully able to change the folder..
but it's only working on an EMPTY folder
I can't make it work on folder with files... *cries*
and yes, i think I have the same files as NEXTLOVER, i dunno where did it go wrong..


I'll appreciate the help, thanks and God Bless!!

yay! thanks for the link..
but im stuck on a certain number.
what should i do on step #3?

it says.. "Change both 3 and 4 with the same open folder icon, 5 with the back side icon , and 6 with the front side icon}"
so.. im gonna use the same open folder on 3 and 4? o_o

im not gonna use the FULL FOLDER???? *_* just the empty folder for numbers 3-4?

That was just a recommendation. You could use the icon for both 3 & 4 or different. I'd try both, and see what you like best.
