Hey Everyone and welcome to the Third Annual Handmade Holidays blog hop!! The best crafters, designers, and makers have come together to create and share a series of thoughtful, handmade gifts for the holidays during this 3 day blog hop. Our goal is to inspire you to create something from the heart this holiday season as well as share how to use our products in fun, innovative ways. We intend this hop to serve as a resource to you for this holiday season and for years to come.
Who doesn’t love a good note book? Personally I am always jotting things down and small notebooks are the perfect place for me to do that in. They are small enough that I can take one with me and not look ridiculous but they keep everything together. They are ideal for To Do lists, Passwords, anything really. When I am giving gifts I like to consider things that I enjoy in my everyday life and think the recipient will as well.
This year I thought sets of small notebooks would be a great gift idea. So thats exactly what I made!
I started with this set of notebooks I got on clearance for a dollar after valentines day last year.
Then I covered them all with my favorite stack of pattern paper! The colors and patterns in it just make me happy 🙂 I also added one of my favorite Bible quotes to each of them with Craft Attitude, this has to be my favorite part!
To add a finishing touch I tied a matching ribbon around the set and made a tiny bow . I think this will look just darling on the recipient’s desk.
I’m so glad you could join us today and hope you have been inspired to make some handmade gifts this holiday season!
We also have an awesome giveaway for you to enter just for hopping along with us!
