Every Boxing Day we go and hang out with some  friends of ours at their Open House.  We enjoy meeting up with their extended family again and just having a relaxing time with them.  They have three girls ranging in age from ten to eighteen so I thought notebooks would be an appropriate gift.  The youngest is getting the pink one, she is a pretty in pink girl!

Supplies:

Cardstock: Berry Bliss Designer paper
Also: White, Chocolate and Light Pink  grosgrain ribbon, Mead notebook from Staples

I carefully took off the covers as I had seen LeAnne do here then decorated each notebook with designer paper and ribbon.  I left a narrow border on each notebook which dictated the colours of paper I used.  After stamping the sentiments I distressed the edges and dragged them across the stamp pad.  All the ribbon is stuck on with sticky strip.  I repunched the holes with a single circle punch and then reassembled the notebooks.

    Those are beautiful! Great job.

  2. Oh, they’re all just darling and you’re so nice to take these little gifts along with you. The girls will love them! I like the idea of removing the cover to decorate. Makes it come out so clean, neat and perfect!

  3. Beautiful notebooks. Love the papers you used… These are such perfect gifts.
