Have you seen these? The fun, seasonal, gel window clings in the stores? I've had my eye on them for a couple of years now and KNEW they would make a fun addition to our Holiday decor. Not to mention, they are fun for little hands. A nice mixture of sticker and jello-like textures, easy to peel, stick, un-peel, squish between fingers, and re-stick. Now that my son is old enough and I am confident these little decals won't end up in his mouth... (lol) I wanted to stock up on them and allow him to decorate the windows every season. First Holiday, Halloween! And I was super excited to see SO MANY options at the stores! And reasonably priced so we could get them all! But... what happens when he wants to mix and match... and what happens when its time to take them down?
Well, I designed my own little system that will work to keep them organized and neat so we can use them for years to come!
3-ring note book
clear plastic page protectors
white card stock (optional)
Here's how it works. Take a page protector and cut off the bottom hem. Next, cut off the folded edge. The sheet will now be two pages of plastic that will open like a book... held together with the left edge, with the holes, that goes in the binder.
Open the page protector and you can now stick your clings down, in between the two plastic pages. Once you close the page, the sheets will protect the clings from dirt and from sticking to the next sheet. And there you go! Keeping doing this for each set of clings and you will soon have a binder of organized clings! If you want to easily see each page of clings, you can insert a white sheet of card stock in between each set. I did this so my photos turned out and I may do this for the finished book. I may even write which set goes on each page when it comes time to take them off the windows... we'll see.
I'm excited to see what they come out with for Thanksgiving and Christmas! I may need more binders to collect them all!
