I have been wanting to make a Christmas Card Tracker for quite some time, but I was just never sure what to use to make it.
Enter my trusty Bind-It-All machine that I am all but obsessed with lately. I knew I wanted a place where I could track who I sent Christmas cards to each year with plenty of room for their addresses, and maybe even a check off box for when they sent a card to our family. I searched and searched the different forms online but I really did not like any that I found and they did not fit the size I had in mind.
So I created my own. And I am sharing the printables with you to print out to create your own!
This card tracker book is good for four years and then I will have to create another one. Oh, darn. I have actually made a couple of these now. They work so well to track my addresses, I even use it throughout the year for other things.
If you want to make one of these yourself it's super easy! I used 5 x
7-1/2 inch chipboard covers and just covered them with Christmas cardstock papers.
I made a title block with a font that I liked on my computer, which I matted to the cover along
with one simple Christmas embellishment. I printed the inside sheets on heavy white
cardstock and cut them to size. Here is a PDF that can be used for a 2014 - 2017 card tracker.
I know some of you may be making them as gifts to give for 2014 Christmas. Since Christmas will have already passed by the time you give them, you will want to start with 2015, so here is a PDF for a 2015 through 2018 card tracker. I try to update these every year for new readers, but if ever one is not up to date, please e-mail me and I will take care of it right away.
I put two to an 8-1/2 x 11 inch sheet of paper to save paper. So just cut them to the size of your book.
This was the easiest mini album I have made yet. I am making up a bunch for my mom, sister, mother-in-law, sister-in-laws and nieces as gifts for Christmas. These would also be great teacher gifts!
