Hello again, it’s Emma back with you, and this time I’d like to show you my early preparations for Christmas!, I know, I know, it’s only early November, but this year I’m determined to be all organized and ready!
I decided to use the Simple Vintage Christmas collection, and I wanted to set up one of my TNs this year to organize everything ‘Christmas’.
So, the first thing I wanted to make was a folder to fit neatly inside my TN, for it to have good sturdy pockets to house lots of tags. Here’s a picture of how the folder looked before I stuck it all together, hopefully you’ll find it helps if you’d like to try it for yourself.
It was quite easy to make, I used one of the 12x12 sheets and double sided sticky tape to fasten together.
I decorated the front using two of the cards from the snap pack, I find the selection of sizes and designs in the snap pack so useful for decorating my planners and of course for journaling on.
You’ll see when the folder is open that I’ve made good sturdy pockets to store my tags.
What I’m wanting to use all these tags for varies, I’m going to write lists on them, gift lists, Christmas card lists, food ideas, all sorts of things, I thought it would be a fun way to get me organized.
The great thing about the lists being on the tags is I can pull out the tag, chuck it in my purse when I’m off to the shops, and easily tick off the items as I buy them!
This collection also comes with tags that are numbered, I’m going to use these to journal on the back of each one, just a little something about that day in December, I won’t find it too daunting then as it’s not a large area to fill.
I made my tags quite simply by using a 12x12 sheet from the Simple Vintage Christmas collection, I stuck ordinary paper luggage tags all over the sheet and cut them out. You’ll be amazed at how many you can cover with just the one sheet! I then tied some bakers twine on each tag. So simple!
I even decorated the back of my folder, so once it’s slid inside my Carpe Diem Traveler's Notebook it will look super pretty. I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my Christmas folder, next time I will show you how I set up the rest of my TN.
