 Holiday Planner

This is a fun little planner that I made to organize the information I’ll need for all of my holiday plans. Actually I use Microsoft One note to sort things out and then I’ll print things off and have a nifty little pocket organizer to carry them around with me, while I shop.

I used a regular school folder and cut it down so that it would be better sized to fit in my purse. I only had white ones on hand and so this paper from last years catalog worked best for what I had in mind. The folder is one of those simple class folders (no brads) that are available at back to school time for just pennies each. I cut about 4 inches off the top and then folded the back and front in half vertically. This gave me 4 pockets in an accordion fold.

Christmas Planner

I glued the two center pockets together from the back to make a center page rather than an accordion fold.

Organized Christmas

I  covered the front and insides with cut designer paper and stamped simple images to decorate each section. I didn’t have any red embossing powder and I wanted my titles to be opaque so I decided to cut them out with my Cricut machine. I thought it would be quick and easy. NOT! Gluing all of those skinny individual letters took forever!

I used the last pocket for a receipt envelope. Of course, when the envelope is overflowing, there is more room in the pocket for extras.


I covered two pieces of chipboard with DSP and included some note pages and then bound it all together and added ribbon and a stamped image to decorate. This will be a fun little place to keep lists of all kinds. Wish lists, shopping lists, menus, party needs, Christmas card list.


Decorating was quick and easy. Lots of punched pieces and a few cut out images.

Thanks for stopping by!
