Maybe THIS Christmas . . .

. . .  I'll be organized!

I made myself this neat little list holder in hopes that it will make my holiday shopping easier . . .

It folds out like like an accordian with pockets on each panel . . .

I made my list holder with the Jenni Bowlin Mercantile November Project kit . . . 

The gold foil star is from my stash. I made my receipt pocket expandable (with a couple of folds) because I may end up with a bunch of receipts . . .

I made a bunch of tags that go into each pocket . . . 

A notebook clip serves to keep the book shut and in order when it's in my bag.  I tied a May Arts ribbon from my stash around the clip . . .

I have so many goodies left over from this project kit to make more projects or layouts with . . .  This kit has so much stuff!  If you check it out on the Mercantile website, you'll see what Jenni did with this same kit - such an adorable Hodge Podge Christmas album.

If you'd like to give something like what I made a try, I have a printable sheet of the tags here:

They are sized to fit 4.75 inch x 2.25 inch tags.

And here is a printable sheet of the pocket titles:

They are sized to fit the 4 inch JBS journaling spots.
