Christmas Pocket Planner

I have seen some planners made with file folders..but had not had a chance to attempt one of my own...until now. I am not sure who is the original person who came up with the idea to alter a file folder into a planner, but if you know who and let me know I will edit this post to include appropriate credit. Here is what I came up with. I used a legal sized folder but perhaps a regular sized one would work as well, since I cut a portion off one end.

This is what it looks like all closed up. There is SU silver elastic cording keeping it closed. I added a binding so it is more like a book.
Here is a peek at the inside. I am offering this as a class as well...but I will be using the current DS Christmas paper instead of Dashing DS paper shown here. I may also use a current stamp set to increase sales.
the rest of the inside...
Above is the envelope I made for keeping tract of receipts. Below is the wish list...cause we all like an idea of what to get people we love and having a place to mark ideas down is perfect!
Thanks again for looking,

What a great project. I have started a list for Christmas projects somewhere, which I will probably loose and then I will have to start a new one. Your project inspires me to actually be more organized in a very pretty way!! Thank you!!
