Santa Express: Wish List & Receipt Keeper


Hello, crafty friends!  I was up yesterday with a cute and fun
Wish List & Receipt Keeper
featuring Santa Express by Doodlebug Design
I love functional organizers especially during the hustle and bustle of the
Christmas season!  

For an extra-sturdy organizer, start with a rectangle piece of chipboard for
the front and back covers.  Cut desired patterned papers to a matching size
and adhere to the front/back.  Trim out the edge of the chipboard in Doodle Twine.

Mat the front with other fun papers and use die-cuts, foam adhesive 
and punch-outs to add dimension.


On the back of the Christmas Confetti Double-Sided Paper, you will find a
notebook-style paper that is divided into six grids and labeled
"christmas wish list".  I cut the grids apart and added the names of 
our family members with Doodle Type stickers.  

On the backside of each list, add a Treat Bag with high-tack adhesive tape.
This will house receipts.

Embellish the pockets as desired.
Punch a hole through one corner of the covers and lists and bind
together with a ring.  
The finished keeper will measure around 4X6; store it inside a plastic
baggie or large envelope if you plan on carrying it along in a purse!

Visit the Doodlebug Blog all week (and next) for more fun projects
using the Santa Express Collection!
