Changing The Way Your Stack Looks
I got tired of my stacks being those small little blue envelopes as I thought they were boring.
I ran across this Chinese site......
optica optima: DRAWERS icon #1
And couldn't understand a word he was saying with it LOL. So I downloaded the files and went from there.
The link to download the Drawers icons are below... I downloaded them all so I could change them when I wanted to.... to get a different look.
Now my stacks look like nice little draws! All nice and tidy!
Once I downloaded one of them my download opened and I double left clicked on the bottom draw...
once I clicked on them there were several on them on that screen. I then took the ones I wanted to use and dragged them to my desktop.
Once they were on my desktop I then right clicked on them then clicked on Get Info and then changed the name & extension of the file.
For example I am going to use the download draw. When I changed the name of it I changed it to this. **Download***.app and then closed the window.
Once I changed it I then opened my download directory and then dragged it into it.
Once it was in there it then changed my blue boring envelope to a nice little draw.

In your folder to where you added the draw with the *** name just remove that file out of the folder and it should go back to normal... if not reboot.

Is there a way to hide the icon file which now shows up in each stacked folder? The first file for them all now is the "**Download*** with the icon photo... This seems unnecessary to not have hidden, I just can't figure out how to hide it.
Other than that very cool! Thanks for the post!
Also I keep accidently clearing my downloads folder when I move the files, and deleting this file... so if it were hidden maybe it wouldn't be deleted! haha.

This is probably one of the pretties OS X mod I've ever seen, thank you for sharing.
