Christmas Organizer

I missed posting this when it went live on the Fiskars website. We teamed up with Graphic 45 a couple of weeks ago and I made this Christmas organizer. I think I'm the only grown up I know who doesn't have a grown up cell phone or any electronic devices to help keep me organized.

My lists are still on paper and I have magazine clippings and print recipes off on my printer. I love how technology has made sharing inspiration so much more accessible but for me, the portability of it all just isn't there yet.

So to keep all my lists and clippings and fabric and color swatches organized for Christmas preparation this year, I used Fiskars tools and Graphic 45 supplies to make this book. Everything I used, other than the red letter stickers on the front cover, was generously provided by Graphic 45.

I was so happy with how pretty and functional the project was when I finished it. The book is a bunch of heavy-weight envelopes bound together.

My purse is "shabby" inside just like the book is so things tend to get get a little battered in it.

So I also made this bag to store it in to prevent it from getting mangled in my purse. The bag quickly pulls closed with a drawstring so while it protects the book, it's easy to use and won't leave you with a line of impatient-turned-angry shoppers in line behind you.

A tutorial and list of tools used to create this Christmas Organizer and drawstring bag can be found on the Fiskars website.

Did you use older Graphic 45 papers? I think the black and creamy colored papers are older, aren't they? I love how you made use of them and added the touches of green , blue and red to the album. Love it!! Made me want to get out my Graphic 45 papers and play.
