Printing Your Elf on the Shelf Notes

Now, time to get these notes printed. 

I prefer printing our Elf on the Shelf notes on this  8 1/2 x 11″ cardstock that you can just pop in to your regular printer at home, but you could definitely also print this just on regular printer paper, too.

Don’t have a printer?

I headed to our local Staples and got these notes printed on 65 lb cardstock, and they turned out great.

It cost just under $1 per sheet to print.

If you’d like, you can definitely take a look at all the designs and pick and choose which pages you’d like printed without having to print them all.

How To Organize Your Elf on the Shelf Notes

Once you’ve got your copy of these free printable Elf on the Shelf Notes printed out, simple cut along the white dotted lines, and you’ll have all your individual cards ready to roll. 

I organized mine by grabbing little sticky notes and just adding a 1, 2, 3, or 4 etc to make which day I’ll use each one on, then storing them in a little recipe card style box I had, in a bin with all my elf supplies! 

How To Display Your Elf on the Shelf Notes

Next, you’ll need to set the notes out with your elf each night. 

For this, you’ve got a few options – 

I grabbed this set of little plastic easels off of Amazon, and they fit perfectly, but you could also just lay the notes down beside your elf, too or tape them to something nearby with this *adorable* Christmas washi tape
