It is that time of the year again...Christmas in July! This craft idea is perfect for writers because it requires research and we all love research, right? In all fairness, I do! It is one of my favorite parts of the writing process.
You can make the folders by yourself or with your children. I made mine with my daughter and bought all our supplies from The Dollar Tree. I may have spent $8 on our supplies, but you can get more elaborate with your folders if you want to.
- Pocket Folder
- Old magazines
- Computer and printer, optional
- Markers, optional
Fortunately, I have a collection of Holiday magazines, ranging from Good Housekeeping to Women's Day and then some.
First, we decorated our folders with a Christmas theme.
Then, we flipped through the pages of the magazines and clipped Christmas ideas. We clipped recipes, decorating ideas, gift ideas, and anything else we wanted to try out this Christmas.
If you don't have magazines, you can search for ideas online and print them out.
Then, add all of your clippings to your folder. It's that simple.
