    Go to the market and download Apps Organizer. You can use it to create folders with any icon you wish.

    You can download separate icon packs, or even use a picture from your phone.

    You use it to create a new shortcut on your desktop [Just like if you long-press and select folders]. You go into the app and set up the names of folders and their icons, then add apps to the list.

    Then, you go to your home screen and long-press, click shortcuts, select apps organizer, and then select the folder you created.

    Once that's done, when you click that icon, a window will pop up with all of the apps you put in that folder. You can select one, or click the X in the top right to close it.

    I used this to consolidate 3 different home screens into 1 and gained much more room without the ugly stock folders.
