Christmas Folder

Hi there! this is Jeanette and I have a fun project for you to do now that will help you out next month :)
I love the holiday season and want to spend time enjoying it....not stressing about all the things I need to do.
Creating a Christmas Folder is a good way to keep your holiday plans and to-do lists all in one place and easily accessible. Create a folder that is embellished with all your favorite papers, tags and stamped images. It will make you smile every-time you pull it out! Add a mini-calendar and you will be all set!
This is the second year now that I have made a Christmas folder and it will be my constant companion from now until Christmas Day. It will house my lists for presents, menus and grocery lists, important dates, as well as a place to jot down my ideas for table settings, activities etc

The first thing I did was pull out the stamps (Whiff of Joy 2011 Christmas collection) and the papers that I wanted to use. Since the panels on my patterned paper (Simple Stories) were fairly big, I used a larger file folder and slightly modified the Accordion File Folder tutorial to accommodate the extra height. I created the tag inserts with my Silhouette SD and secured some ribbon to them so that I can slip my lists right between the ribbon and the panel.
