Birthday Card Organizer

Yes, I know, another tin! Honestly, I love making these decorated tins & I'm always finding a new use for them! This one is a Birthday Card Organizer. I've been wanting to make some type of a birthday card organizer for a long time, but just hadn't found something that was ideal for me. The tin works great! I have dividers inside for each of the 12 months plus calendar pages where I can write down the birthdays for each month. Hopefully this will help me to plan ahead a little when it comes to making birthday cards! I like the idea of having all of my upcoming birthday cards stored & organized in one place. And the tin is easy to move around wherever I want to put it & it helps to protect my newly made cards from the innocent but destructive hands of my toddler! I used the Summer Days Simply Scrappin' Kit which I just love! It turned out even better than I had hoped! I've also decided that since I've been a slacker this month & haven't planned a stamp class, that I'll be offering this Birthday Card Organizer as a "class in the mail." For details see the information below the pictures:

Class in the Mail Details:
Birthday Card Organizer Kit

The Birthday Card Organizer tin is a cute, decorative way to organize your cards for upcoming birthdays. It also makes a wonderful gift-it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas! The Birthday Card Organizer tin is decorated using the Summer Days Simply Scrappin’ Kit from Stampin’ Up! Everything will be pre-cut & pre-stamped for you. A step-by-step instruction sheet is included to help you put it all together. Detailed photos of the Birthday Card Organizer will be emailed to you as well. All you need to do is supply your own Tacky Glue (or adhesive of your choice).

What’s included:

The Tin:

You will get one Provo Craft white lunchbox tin with handle. The approximate size is 7”x 5”x 4” (the tin will hold at least 20 cards plus envelopes). The designer paper will be pre-cut for you & everything will be pre-stamped as well. The ribbon, buttons, & other embellishments will also be pre-cut & included in the kit. You will also receive Mini Glue Dots & Stampin’ Dimensionals that will be used to adhere some of the embellishments to the tin.

The Dividers:

Inside of the tin are 12 tabbed dividers. They are made with textured card stock in coordinating colors so that everything matches. The tabs will be pre-stamped for you as well with the 12 months of the year: JAN, FEB, MAR, APR, MAY, JUN, JUL, AUG, SEP, OCT, NOV, DEC. You will decorate them with stickers from the Summer Days Simply Scrappin’ Kit.

The Birthday Calendar Pages:

You will also receive 12 blank calendar pages with the month pre-stamped on it. They have a column for the day of the month & a column to write the name of the birthday person. You will decorate these with stickers from the Summer Days Simply Scrappin’ Kit as well. The calendar pages are sized to fit perfectly behind each divider so that you can keep birthdays & cards organized by month.
