inspiration monday - Christmas notepad printable



'tis the season to be holly, jolly, merry…..and busy!  so i've created a fun notepad printable to help get some of the busy-ness organized!  here are two ways you can use it…..

idea #1:  use this notepad as a little gift registry by printing out a page for each person you're shopping for.  then cut or tear on the light grey border lines and down the middle.





stack the pages on top of each other and punch two holes at the top through the entire stack.





  thread baker's twine or ribbon through the holes to hold it all together.
{optional:  cut a front and back cover from card stock and add a message to keep others from peeking!}






now add the name of the recipient to the star, and then write gift ideas, sizes, color preferences, etc. in the other ornaments.  it's the perfect size to tuck in your purse, so you'll have all the necessary information when you're out shopping.  and don't forget to carry some colored pencils or markers with you to add a pop of color to the pages while you're waiting during appointments!






idea #2:  use this printable as a cover for your to-do list.  print out onto card stock or watercolor paper and cut or tear on the grey border lines and down the middle.   use markers, watercolor, or colored pencils to finish the design (if you're a zentangler, these spaces are the perfect doodle playground!).






 cut several pieces of paper approximately 4.25" x 6" and then stack on top of each other, with your colored cover on top.  {optional:  you can also cut a back cover from card stock to add more stability}





punch two holes at the top through the entire stack of paper and weave baker's twine or ribbon to hold everything together.  now you have a space to jot down all those holly-jolly notes, errands, and fun stuff you want to do!





whichever project you choose, i hope this printable helps to make your season more organized!  to get started,  click here for the printable file!
