Christmas Planner with Gift Tags


Hi all and welcome back to Chapter 4 release with Eileen Hull Designs! Thank you for passing by my blog. Today I will show you this Christmas Planner that I have created with the full size notebook. It’s the perfect gift idea for yourself or a friend who loves organisation!

So, let’s get started….

Step 1: The die was cut…

Step 2: I then decided on a base, so I chose this lovely, square background paper…

Step 3: I then put background paper on the inside of my journal…

Step 4: As I want to decorate both the inside of the front and back covers, I added some white card stock so I can build on to the cover…

Step 5: I made a spine so I could attach my pages. I just folded white cardstock to create this spine. I attached it using hot glue…

Step 6: I started to decorate the page inserts. I made the page inserts using envelopes and backed them with white card, which enables me to decorate both sides of the envelope. This pages below, I mounted a small envelope and cut a half oval so I could put gift cards inside it when it’s complete…

Step 7: I then decorated some more pages…

Step 8: I created some gift tags…

Step 9: I then created and decorated the rest of the planner adding different pages to write on so you can plan gifts, Christmas cards etc. I wanted this journal to be fun as well as practical. Here are all the pages that I created….

On the above image, I have used the new doily, it’s so sweet!

On the below image I used the Sweater Embossing Folder, absolutely love it!

So now my planner is complete! On the below image are the gift card holders…
