Christmas Shopping Lists Notebook/Folder

 Today for the "Fun Fold Friday" item I have a very fun and useful Christmas shopping list keeper/holder/folder, whatever you'd like to call it.  I designed it to put in my purse and be an aid in my Christmas shopping.  Step one would be to know who you are buying for and then to know what they want.  After that it's the shopping and crossing things off the list!!! I LOVE all of that part, it's the wrapping of these "things" on the list that slow me up at Christmas time!!!

Anyway, I bet you would like to know how to make one or several of these?  Well, I'm going to tell you!!!

First you take a piece of card stock. Here I used Riding Hood Red.  I cut it3-7/8" x 9-1/4".  I scored on the long side at 3/4" and 5-1/4".  Fold the scored lines inward and set aside.  

Next I cut a piece of Always Artichoke card stock 3-3/8" x 3-5/8" and on top of that I layered a piece of decorative paper that measured 3-1/4" x 3-1/2".

If you want to decorate the bottom flap the card stock was cut at 3/4" x 3-1/3" and the decorative paper was cut at 5/8" x 3-1/2".  

Download the pages for the inside and print them out.  You can decorate them as much or as little as you want.  Cut them at 3-15/32" x 4-1/4".  The long side needs to be cut into 3rds that is why the 15/32 inch part is there. 

To assemble the pages you just jog them together so the edges are even or as even as can be, insert them into the bottom of the holder in the fold of the short flap and staple them about 1/4" above the edge of the fold.  Your shopping list folder is now ready to use!  

You can also access the download by clicking on my web store link which is on the top right side of my blog "Shopping is just a click away"If  you don't see the download in the store you may have to go to the top of the page (in the store) and click on the number of items per page to view.  The download is free!!!
Have fun with this!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I've been a follower of yours for awhile and love all the things you do. I like this new shopping list you did. I went to get it and it all went through, but it still says pending. How long does it take?
