Cricut Holiday Organizer



I started my Christmas shopping this weekend and I am determined to be better organized for this holiday season. So I thought if I could keep all my lists and receipts in one place that would be a good start. This is a little organizer, just 2 pockets - one for my lists (to buy), and one for my receipts. It is done with George and DS, it uses one sheet of 12 x 12 plus whatever to decorate. The little pad I picked up at the local copy place (10 pads for $1) but you could easily just cut paper and staple/use brads. I used a velcro dot to close, and scored the flap twice (1/8inch apart) so that when its full of reciepts, it will still close nice. I'm making these to hand out on Thanksgiving so everyone has one for the day after shopping. I've got 5 done and I'm hoping to do 5 more today, we'll see...

If you would like to make one, file is below (second file is just welded words I used on the covers). When it cuts it will be cutting it as open, so if using patterned paper, but sure to put the outside pattern on the mat. I recommend using the red super sticky strips for the sides of the pockets to be sure they stay stuck...don't want to loose those receipts. Happy Thanksgiving, and happy shopping!
Welded words:
For folder file, please see revised post on 11-4-09
