Hey there everyone! Laura here with you today to share a way to
get yourself organized this year!!
If you are like me, I'm always looking in the "junk drawer"
to find where I put this coupon, that business card,
a gift card I got for "x" holiday. This year I thought
instead of always searching, why not make a colorful,
fun organizer to avoid that frustration! It started with a
Clear Scraps Acrylic Tab Slimline Album.and the cute
Scissors Chipboard Embellishment! I decided to
use alcohol inks to make it bright and colorful. I did
the cover and back in a mix of 3 colors, and then did
each individual section in one of the colors alone.
I created a section for grocery coupons or ads.
Another for restaurant/coffee gift cards. Here I used
To create the card pockets, I used a small piece of
patterned paper and attached small pieces of
cardstock (2"x4") glued down leaving the top open.
I kept decorating simple with a few strips of scrap
paper and an enamel dot here or there.
Just enough to give it a little pizzazz.
To make the larger pocket pages, I folded a 9&1/2" wide
piece of cardstock in half. It was 10&1/2" long. I cut
out a section at the top 6&1/4" long to leave the 4&1/4"
"pocket" along the bottom. I glued the edges to create
the pocket and punched holes to add to the album.
This section holds rewards cards or retail shop
gift cards or coupons. Love the cute little hangers?
Clear Scraps Clothes Hangers Chipboard with a little
twine bow. They were painted with black acrylic
paint, and I brushed the "hanger" top with silver.
The final pages were more pockets for cards or
tickets or whatever item needed a home!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
