DIY Organizer Booklet with Sandra

Get ready for an easy and fun DIY project. Would you like to create a spiral organizer booklet with your favorite patterned papers? But you don’t know how to start? Look no further, because it’s never been that easy with the All-in-One-Tool available at Joann Stores! It’s me, Sandra, and I’m sharing a pretty handmade journal booklet idea for all the lovely memories you will make in 2021.

Make golden memories last forever with the All-in-one-Tool. Create a spiral bound organizer with tabs and your favorite patterned papers.

How to: Start by picking your favorite patterend papers. I used papers from the Marigold Collection by Crate Paper. Next, grab your All-in-One-Tool and use the tab maker to create pretty dividers. The tool comes with detailed descriptions! TIP: You will also need white cardstock for the inside pages, an acetate sheet for the cover, and lots of stickers for decoration. I created 6 tab dividers. The good thing: you can use any paper and any size you want to.

The organizer booklet will help you to keep your favorite memories of 2021. And it’s totally up to you to personalize the inside pages! I used a lot of fun stickers to create decorative boarders and accents throughout my ‘Golden memories’ organizer.

In addition, I used my favorite patterned papers to make the tab dividers. Here are two examples showing dividers made with pretty patterned papers from the Marigold Collection by Crate Paper:

For the cover of my booklet I used a sheet from the 12×12 inch acetate pad. I really like the quality–just perfect to protect the top tab divider of my organizer.

And now let’s look at how easy it is to create tab dividers with the tool:

When the cover, the tab dividers, and the inside pages are all done, use a binding machine to create your journal booklet. And it could look like this:
