How to Create:
Use the colored dot paper as the base of your layout.
Adhere two 4” x 6” photos to green Photo Mats. Adhere to page, centered near the top of the layout.
Cut a piece of Santa belt paper to 2 ½” x 12.” Use the Paper Edger on one 12” edge. Fold this edge over so there is a 3/8” flap of stripes showing. Adhere to the layout below the photos.
Trim another piece of Santa belt paper to 3-1/4” x 12”, centering on the belt. Using the largest Oval Custom Cutting Pattern, cut two semi-circles above the belt 3-1/4” apart to create the look of pockets.
Use Tape Runner adhesive on the back two sides, bottom and center of the Santa belt paper. Adhere 1-1/4” down from the striped flap. Cut a green Photo Mat to 4-1/2” x 3-1/4.” Adhere each inside the pockets as shown.
Either computer-generate or hand journal the titles, “To Do” and “Done” for each pocket. Edge around each title with the black pen.
Using the ABC Stickers, add the title Christmas Activities. Add the Christmas tree die-cut and pink snowflake epoxy sticker as shown.
Using the Tag Maker, punch 25 tags from various Photo Mats. Journal 25 Christmas activities to do as you count down to Christmas. Cut each piece of White Shimmer Cardstock to 1-1/4” x 2” and adhere to the punched tag. Slide the tags into the pocket.
