With just 86 days left until Christmas (86 DAYS PEOPLE!!!), I've set my Disney planner to the side in order to prep this year's Christmas planner. In the past I have taught Christmas planner classes and sold kits to make your own, but this year I've decided to share my planner pages with you as I print my own. (Go all the way to the bottom of this post to find the printables!)
I use an old Franklin-Covey classic size red binder for my Christmas planner. Classic size pages are half of a normal sheet of paper - 5.5" x 8.5". I find it to be the ideal size as I can just cut my paper in half and feed it through my printer without throwing anything away.Click here to see a similar binder on Amazon, I found mine through E-Bay for a fraction of the price.
My planner dividers are from a retired (read: really old) line from Basic Grey called Blitzen. I bought a ton of the stuff when I was teaching regularly and now you will see it over and over again because I have so damn much of it.
To make the tabs, I printed them on cardstock and then laminated the front side only. I used my favorite tab punch (McGill 3" tab) to punch them out and then folded them in half before gluing them to my dividers. (here's something similar)
- To Do -- calendars, to do lists and memory keeping
- Gifts - who gets what, what is on order and Black Friday deals
- Stuffed - stocking stuffers
- Advent - advent calendar stuffers and Elf on the Shelf ideas
- Merry - movies, tv, books and music, holiday events, crafting ideas and Christmas party info
- Cards - who did I send cards to and who did I get them from?
- Décor - indoor and outdoor decorations
- Eats - yummy holiday treats
As I work on my book this week, I'll be adding each printable section. Because the "to do" section is the busiest, it is a whopping 38 pages -- I promise the other sections are smaller. I print mine back to back (and the margins are set to support that). Remember to print on a half-sheet size -- 5.5" wide by 8.5" high.
