DIY Postcard/Photo Binder Album

20130129-180746.jpg

One of the cheapest things I have collected over the years is postcards! They are a great souvenir for all the places I have been or a simple gift for others to give to me! I have always kept them in a box because I could never find an album big enough for them or that I could write in,so I decided to make one!
You need:
1 binder
Paper to put in on(preferably card stock)
Tape or Glue
Paper protector slip pages
Postcards or pictures

And…wallah! Just put the postcards or pictures on the page however you want. Decorate it with stickers or write on it. It would be really cool to write all the memories around the pictures or postcards! I am extremely happy to have all my memories bound together to always have! Happy DIYing!

Love always, Laken

Cute Binders & Organization

binders

As the second semester of school came around, I have had to buy all new binders, paper,etc…and  my friends and I discovered a website with binder page templates. They are extremely cute, and all you have to do is click on the link, save a template, and write what you need to on the front. I have done it with my binder below –>

I also thought a few organization tips might be nice! THESE CAN BE FOR K-12 STUDENTS, COLLEGE STUDENTS, or MOMS & DADS at home for Organizing Bills, coupons, paperwork, etc…

1. Keep a pencil & pen pouch. Either in your binder or in your purse. (Also handy for those not in school!)

2. Keep paper stocked in the front of your binder for easy access.

3. Tabs are $1.50 at Walmart and can help you sooo much when organizing. Take the most important things you do in class (such as Homework, Classword, Board Work, Vocab, Essays, etc…) and make it a heading.This also means that you must put every paper in its correct place! Avoid keeping all your papers piled in the front pocket of your binder!!!

4. A binder for an important class that you will use often, should most likely be in a better binder. Although Staples binders are expensive, they are the best. So splurge, and use it for years, instead of buying a cheap one from Walmart and it breaking.

Happy Organizing! Message me for any questions or more help!

Love always, Laken.
