Santa's List by Danielle Flanders

I know Halloween isn't over yet, but it's nearing the time for me to start thinking about Christmas, presents and all that goes with it! I decided to turn one of the little mini albums into a notebook to keep in my purse to remind me of my to-do list for the holidays! I made a section for each of my daughters (marked by tabs/tickets) where I am going to have them write in what they would like for Christmas! I can then keep this with me to refer to it when needed. When the holidays are over, I will add photos of them opening their gifts, and voila! I have a mini album complete from the start of the holiday to the end. I love that I'll have their handwritten wish lists in here to keep forever.

I love the Family Tree line for the holidays with it's reds and greens. I covered the front of the album with the yellow mini paper from the Family Tree mini paper pack. To get a star punched out of it, I had to trim off the corner of the paper and slide my star punch in. It was the perfect size punch to match the star already in the mini album! Then I added a red star sticker and pearl down inside on the first page.

A Silver Receipt rub on was added to the front cover and Black Ledger Sticker Alphas, along with a few more strips of paper. On the inside, I covered a chipboard star with a green 12" x 12" piece of Family Tree paper and punched a hole to attach it inside the book. To finish, I tied a ribbon around the rings and added a new Vintage Christmas button and pin. The little Santa was actually the one who inspired this project!

Awesome! Thanks for the inspiration Danielle!
