As part of my attempt to make Christmas just a little bit more affordable, I made all the gifts for the girls at the school where Gary works. I believe there were 9 in all, so it really helped by cutting down on cost.Almost all of the journals were covered with paper I already owned. I also used embellishments I already had to bling up the fronts. All the journals were from Micheal's and some even had their initials inside if I was able to find the right initials!
My packaging - well that is nothing other than a brown paper lunch sack with a little bling from the cricut to juice it up! I made the flower from the Platinum Schoolbook Cartridge and added another layer to it fro that POP! There is also a button with some jute for the center!
I hope they enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them! By the way, my breads I showed you earlier in the month were a HUGE hit and I will definitely be doing that again!
Last but not least, I have to share a picture of my sweet little one with you. This is from Christmas morning when she opened her gifts and realized that one of them was a "scrapbook desk" like Mommy's!! We even bought paper, stickers, the whole nine yards to fill it with! She is on cloud nine. I will have to add a pic of her 'scrapping" someday soon!
God Bless You,
