Folder icon masking?
I'm completely new to theming but wanted to give it a go. So far I have a lot of the stock icons skinned as well as a mask for the auto-skinning of AppStore apps. I've also made a start on skinning the Calculator app itself.
Now, the reason I'm posting. If you take a look at the screenshot below, you'll see that the icons inside of folders pop outside of the boundaries of the folder icon. So I was wondering if there was a way to mask the icon as I have with the auto-skinning of AppStore apps? Or perhaps lay the icons out in an order which would fit within the folder icon?
(It's in a very unfinished state at the moment so don't mind the wallpaper and such!)
If anyone has any ideas, I'd be much appreciative for the help!

creating a tweak would be the only way to change the layout of the apps, you could take a look at the one that comes with the inPulse theme, inside of a square of 9 icons, it only has 4 closer to the middle, it may fit, although youd have to buy his theme to the dylibs for it

Springtomize has a option to disable the icon preview in Folders. Just an option.

Thanks guys, I'll give those a try. A method within Winterboard is preferential so (if I eventually finish & release it) people can install the theme without having to install anything else.

Don't worry, I have no plans to distribute others work! I'll have a look into creating this tweak once I have more of the design elements complete.
