Christmas Planner

Every year I keep a master list of Christmas presents.  I have to or else I will forget something or someone!  I just can't remember everything now a days. :)

So I came across this really cute idea for a Christmas planner from the Sisters at Eighteen25 and I knew that I had to make my own.  You can head over to their blog and check the printables for the planner and the full instructions.  I did a few adjustments as I made mine.

I used a notebook that I picked up on clearance somewhere.  It's about 6 x 7 inches.  I covered the front with Christmas paper.  I tied the ribbons on the wire rings on the side.  I did this only to cover up the purple background of the notebook that I couldn't put paper on.  If you look closely, you can see the purple under the ribbons. 


On the first sheet, I covered it with more paper and glued on a fancy envelope that I cut out using my Silhouette machine.  This is where my coupons go.


The second page has another envelope for the receipts.


Here's the tab that will take you to the master list.  No one is allowed to look here except me!  :)


As you can see, I glued Christmas paper onto the page that I attached the tab onto.  I just wanted to reinforce that page. 


Here is my calender.  You can find the printable on Eighteen25's blog.


And here is my To Do tab.  I will put my different ideas down, recipes, lists, etc.


And last, but not least, I covered the back of the book as well!  This was such a cheap project because I had everything lying around!


Now for the fun part!  Shopping...
