Homemade Gifts are Great!
Happy Friday! I'm happy to see the weekend here! I wanted to show you a cute gift I made a friend for her birthday. I know I have shared one of these journals before, but this one is decorated differently. ;)
I love personalized gifts. I think this little journal is even more fun with a family last name on the cover. The house and "happy" and "home" are from Studio Calico. The "take note" is Papertrey Ink.
The inside of the book has pages with the months, a spot to fill in the date and lines to journal on. I love to record the funny things my kids say in this little book!
I wrapped it all up in a cellophane bag with some paper shreds and ribbon. I tied on a Martha Stewart tag that I stamped and it was ready to give. My friend loved it! :)
