Happy Saturday! Today I have a fun project for you to do now that will help you out next month :) I am ALL about organization lately. I want to make sure that once December rolls in, I will be able to tackle this busy season and be PRESENT in each special moment!
I love the holiday season and want to spend time enjoying it....not stressing about all the things I need to do.
Creating a Christmas Folder is a good way to keep your holiday plans and to-do lists all in one place and easily accessible. Create a folder that is embellished with all your favorite papers, tags and stamped images. It will make you smile every-time you pull it out! Add a mini-calendar and you will be all set!
This is the second year now that I have made a Christmas folder and it will be my constant companion from now until Christmas Day. It will house my lists for presents, menus and grocery lists, important dates, as well as a place to jot down my ideas for table settings, activities etc
The first thing I did was pull out the stamps (Whiff of Joy 2011 Christmas collection) and the papers that I wanted to use. Since the panels on my patterned paper (Simple Stories) were fairly big, I used a larger file folder and slightly modified the Accordion File Folder tutorial to accommodate the extra height. I created the tag inserts with my Silhouette SD and secured some ribbon to them so that I can slip my lists right between the ribbon and the panel.
The Front Cover:
Inside Panel #3
Inside Panel #4

Addition supplies: Simple Stories 12x12 patterned paper (25 days of Christmas) SU! quilted ribbon in Cherry Cobbler, SU! Ivory Hodge Podge metal tag and brads.
Hope this has inspired you to create your own Christmas folder this year! If you do create one, please share it with me. Who knows? Maybe I will feature it here on my blog :)
