Birthday and Anniversary Organizer
With a new year started, it seems everyone has something that they are going to try and improve on in 2015. For years I have said I am going to try harder to remember the birthdays and anniversaries of the people in my life. But it turns out, having those names and dates on my digital calendar and written in a date book, has yet to help me get cards and wishes out on time.
So I have created something that I THINK will help me get on top of things. This is my Birthday and Anniversary Organizer. It started as a simple wooden pencil holder I picked up at my local dollar store. But I could see it has the potential of being super cute!
- Pink Burlap String
- White Mini Pom Pom Ribbon
- Echo Park– This & That Collection
- 1″ Circle Punch
- Tag Punch
- Flowers and Buttons
- Glue Gun
I started by covering most of the wooden surfaces with pretty patterned papers from Echo Park. I then created the cards for inside my organizer. That all depends on the size of your container. I added tabs to the tops of the cards for easy organization and letter stickers to identify each month in order.
I used the burlap string looped and tied in a knot in the middle as leaves for my flower. I used my hot glue gun from this point on, to attach any of my pretty goodies.
I added the white pom pom ribbon to the top edge of my organizer. I really cannot get enough of this adorable pom pom ribbon. I think I need it in every color!
There you have it….hopefully my solution to getting organized in 2015! Check back in a few months, and maybe I’ll let you know how it’s worked for me!
