Day 4: Christmas Organizer

Hello everyone!
It's Mindy here and today I'm sharing a fun little Christmas Organizer with you all. This is so easy and fun to make and oh so useful! I'm using this super cute Stamp Set, Glitter House Village Stamp Set on the front of the organizer. (Note: This stamp will be back in stock and shipping out December 11 — available for purchase now!) Feel free to decorate with any stamps you desire.

Christmas Organizer / Receipt Holder Tutorial
  • Take a 12x12-inch sheet of cardstock and score it at 4 inches and 12 inches.
  • Then, turn the paper and score at 4 inches on the opposite side of the previous score lines like in the following photo.

  • Cut on the 4 and 8 inch scored lines going up to the score going across. Then you're going to want to make a thicker gap between the middle flap. Trim about 1/8 inch off at a slight angle.
  • Add a strip of glue to the sides of the flaps. You don't want to put any on the edge of the flaps because you want these to be pockets for notes, receipts, shopping lists, menus etc.
  • Fold your Christmas Organizer shut and on the back (which is the middle section of the organizer) use a thick piece of score tape and adhere some twine.
  • Then I covered the twine with some ribbon, leaving the twine unwrapped so it's able to wrap around to the front and make a bow.
  • I trimmed some paper and slid them into my slots and also took some patterned paper and decorated the outside of my pockets. You could label the pockets for each gift recipient if you'd like!
  • When you fold the top flap down you will notice I added an envelope for receipts, Christmas lists etc.
