Christmas is only weeks away and I know if I don’t get organized now it will sneak up on me and I wont be prepared. I know that I probably should have already started planning but I haven’t done a thing except put up the decorations. After getting things together I realized I had all these little notes everywhere and hadn’t started using my planner yet. I decided that I needed a place to write notes and a folder to save some coupons and other stuff. That’s when I made these Christmas notebooks.

Christmas notebooks 8

I wasn’t thinking and didn’t take pictures from the beginning but I started out with a pocket sized composition notebook, a small notebook and a plain manila folder. Then, I piled up all of my Christmas paper and picked out a few matching pages to make the covers.

I had these great Christmas tree graphics and the Christmas Memories text that look perfect on both notebooks making them a matching set.

On the inside cover of the spiral notebook I attached a ho ho ho text strip and on the first page a 25 day calendar to count down the days till Christmas.

Finally, I used this great tutorial to make the folder and added some more great embellishments that I had to give it a little zip.

I may not be ready for Christmas just yet but this will definitely help keep things together!
