Christmas Planner...

We're moving in a couple of weeks and I really should have been packing today. Instead, I got out my craft supplies (which will be the very last thing I pack!) and made this cute Christmas planner.



I wish I could take credit for this idea (isn't it fabulous?!), but I can't. It came from here.

I made a few changes to her measurements and added a pocket on the inside (the Walmart receipt is just to give you an idea of how big the pocket is). My measurements were:
*cut paper to 8"x11"
*score at 4.75", 9 7/8", and 10 1/8"

The measurements for the little pocket are:
*cut paper 5" x 3.5"
*score 1/2" on 3 sides
*cut the 2 corner squares off
*fold, adhere, and decorate as desired.

I think I'm going to make some of these for my girls....decorated 'girly' instead of in Christmas paper, of course! They love to doodle, so these would be great to keep everything in one place. And if I'm lucky, it'll keep them entertained on our long drive to our new home {crossing my fingers}...

That is so cute! I wish I could say I was that organized, I am doing good with just starting to make my presents early and buy stuff to put away. Looks super cute! I probably should make one o get myself organized!
