There’s no such thing as too early to start planning for the holidays, and I delighted in creating several holiday projects for display at the summer CHA show for Tim Holtz. When I saw this old Nancy Drew book that was 3 books in 1, I just knew it would be the perfect size to pair with a Tim Holtz large binder ring and create a Holiday planner.
Adding in paint, tissue tape, and making the most of the Christmas Kraft papers was all super fun. I love how my book turned out!
Here’s some shots of the inside. I used tags to divide my sections…
I kept it pretty simple (well, simple for me!) and didn’t stress about perfect anything. After all – this is a book that will be thrown in my purse, hauled around, and otherwise abused all season long!!
can you tell I had a GREAT time making this project? Love it. Today I’m starting to fill it up with lists too! I LOVE holiday lists. *happy sigh*
As far as supplies go, you could use ANY assortment of papers and goodies. That said, I’ve compiled a listing of every single thing I know I used in this book in case you’re wanting to know some specifics.
Are you a holiday planner? Or do you just fly by seat of your pants? Have you started crafty projects?
