This year I am all about making plans and making realistic goals and schedules. To do so I have been sharing my “Make It Happen” plan. To go along with my January goals of setting routines I have created a home organization binder with all my schedules. And I crafted a knob and ribbon to make it able to stand on its own.

Read below for the DIY details on how to make and set up your own binder. You can customize your binder to include various inserts that will help you stay organized. One of my favorite things about this binder is it has all the birthday, thank you, and get well cards I could need throughout the year. I used Stampin Up Lookin Up Card Kit. Here are some more ideas of items I have in my binder.

Childrens Schedules

Home Organization Command Center Binder DIY

What You Need

white binder

white ribbon

magnet clips

wooden toggle button

clear paper protectors

hot glue gun

hot glue sticks


Follow along these instructions to set up your own command binder or watch this stop animation here.

  1. Plug in your hot glue gun. Set your hot glue sticks next to the hot glue gun.
  2. Take off any wrappers or plastic on your materials.
  3. Decide what you want on the inside and insert the amount of clear sheet protectors. It doesn’t hurt to have a couple extras.
  4. Using your hot glue gun, glue ribbon on the inside metal piece as a bookmark.
  5. Using the hot glue gun and some thin ribbon glue a toggle on one side.
  6. On the opposite side, aligning with the toggle if bended backwards, hot glue a loose loop for the toggle. This will make it so your binder becomes a stand.
  7. Hotglue in the metal clips for notes or a small calendar if desired. (see photo below)
  8. Fill your sheet protectors with your fillings. (see list above)
  9. Last print off the cover sheet of your choice below or make your own.

I keep my binder in my kitchen command center and use it often. When the kids come home from school or in the morning I flip to the page of their after school routines. I do the same for bedtime and in the moring. Have fun customizing your own binder. Make it colorful or leave it black and white. Bottom line is functionality.

If you make this craft I would love to see it! If you post on instagram use #cjanecrafts or you can comment here or email me! Id love to feature your finished project here!
