Avery announces the $2,000 Grand Prize Winner of the Tip It Forward Contest on Facebook!

Congratulations to Denise Ziemann for winning the Organization of Mom’s $2,000 Grand Prize!

Her winning tip?

I made a school memories binder for each of my kids using an Avery 1 1/2” EZ turn ring binder and Avery Premium Heavyweight Sheet Protectors. Each grade is divided with Avery Tab dividers. Every year I have them fill out a template “questionaire” of all there favorites. I slip it in the beginning of the year along with anything else throughout the year I want to save. Art projects (if they are too big i take a picture and put the picture in), report cards, holiday cards from school, certificates, etc….

I have also laminated some of the special ones for extra protection.

The next phase is getting Avery baseball card sheet protectors and putting a wallet sized picture of the kids in each year!


Denise’s Three Avery School Memory Books


You can slip more than one project / card in the sheet protectors.


Even oversized or odd shaped projects will work in the sheet protectors.

  1. This is such a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing! I’m so over run with my kids’ artwork and I just hate throwing any of it away! This will make it so much easier to keep their precious art!

  2. That is a wonderful project. I might have to “borrow” it when I do arts and crafts with Princess Zaria.

  3. Congratulations Denise Ziemann!

  4. This is an excellent idea! I have so many things of my daughter’s that I don’t know how to organize.

  5. This is such an excellent work and I like this project very much.I always like to do art and crafts with colorful combination and different shapes.I also use lamination for protection for my cards.

  6. This is my first time i visit here. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! keep up the good work.

  7. This was nicely done. Preserving the childhood memories of your children. I think they only Avery products your missing there is the Avery label. Haha
