We're of two minds about this over-the-top Christmas planner. With the most complete tutorial presentation we've ever seen--including video!--blogger Oz-somestamps does a great job explaining how to make this wildly creative entry in the holiday planner field.
But be aware: this project, lovely as it is, is fairly complex and will require some specialty tools. Using a Zutter Bind-it-All and Crop-A-Dile Big Bite papercrafting tools, this project may be for dedicated papercrafters only.
This project also includes downloadable .PDF instructions and printable pages for the planner forms found in the folder. (Once again, we're a bit divided in our praise--these forms show a lot of similarity to Christmas pocket planner forms offered by OrganizedChristmas.com. In the spirit of sharing, we'd like to have seen credit given where credit was due.... but since they're a nice variation on the theme, we're pointing them out anyway.)
