Lesson Plan Binders Don't Have to be Boring!

I have been on the search for a cute binder for my lesson plans for the past two years. I have found so many that I like with cute patterns and wonderful colors, but they are either too thin or they don't have inside pockets. I finally gave up and bought a plain white Avery binder that I could liven up using scrapbook paper and my computer. I think I'm ready to start adding lesson plans now!



What do you use for your lesson plans?

  2. That's very cute!
    I just use a plain binder and pop in my own fancy cover. I feel to constricted when I use something made by someone else ... but I'm like that with almost everything:)

    1. Thanks, Cheryl! I think Wal-Mart has a similar version. I don't remember if it's Fiskars brand, but they do have several.

  9. Wow this is wonderful. This can be used for any occasion.

    If you have time, please share it in our Crafty Showcase. We run it Sat-Thur and showcase our favorites on Friday.

    Thanks much! We love scrapbook paper. So many uses.
