how to trigger an approval flow when a file is moved to a specific folder


I created an approval process where files are moved from folder to folder, depending on their approval status.

So if someone wants to publish a blog, he will create in a folder "blogs under construction" and when ready for publication move it to the folder "blogs for approval". Once approved, the file will be moved to the folder "blogs ready yo publish" by the workflow. When not approved it will be returned to the under construction folder.

This all works perfectly fine, but only if I create the file in de approval folder, or move it there from outside the library.  But I want people to create the file in the construction folder and move it to the approval folder for approval. But in that case the flow will not be triggered? 

Any ideas?
