On the Second day of Christmas...

This is a favorite gift to make for many occastions. Take a composition notebook from your local store- usually sells for under $2 or so- and cover it with the DSP of your choice. Here I used Beyond the Garden - and adhere it using the sticky tape around the border and tombow multimono liquid glue and it sticks realy well. I also use the sticky tape to adhere the ribbons to decorate and hide the seams.

I stamped Fabulous florets and sentiment in Not Quite Navy to break up all the yellow.

I continue the ribbon from the front vertical seam cover all the way around - keeping it loose from the top of the cover and attach a button as shown to use as a bookmarker.

I tied a daffodil ribbon and then gluedotted the ribbon to the button but you could sew it on as well- which may be stronger.

Easy gift for you to make for one of your favorite friends or teacher- and it also forces you to use up all those designer papers you have been hoarding- and you know who you are!

It takes no time at all - so make a few for easy gifts this holiday season.
