This week’s Giving Guide project is one of those gifts you could make a million ways, based on your style, decorative paper and embellishments. It is a personalized notebook. It is small enough to slide into a woman’s handbag, be toted around by a child, and versatile enough for grocery lists, journaling, sketching, practicing the ABCs, and to-do lists. This a great project to let your children help along side you for their favorite teacher or friend for Christmas.
12 x 12 decorative paper/cardstock
8.5 x 5ish scrap coordinating paper
13 pieces of copy paper
ribbon, trim or rickrack
hot glue gun
button or embellishment
Cut 12 x 12 paper to fit flush to the copy paper to become the cover. You’ll need to work a nice crease around the card stock on the front and back of the binding to fit the cover perfectly slug. Cut excess cardstock off the lip of the notebook.
