My daughters LOVE to write in any notebook they can find. Whether it's a small little note pad, post-it notes, composition books or a binder with blank paper in it. They write and draw in everything! It's great when it's something they're suppose to use, but sometimes it can be annoying and wasteful when they use my stash of extras.
Back in August, when Wal Mart had their great back to school sale, I loaded up on the composition notebooks. They are normally around $0.70, but during Back to School, they were 4 for $1! For Christmas, I decided to make my girls a personalized notebook that they can write and draw all over.
I know my girls will love these!!
These are just composition notebooks covered in scrapbook paper. I personalized them with a monogram or their name and inked the paper for a distressed look.
These could be much cuter and more involved if you wanted. You could also do it with a notebook with blank paper for those artists in your life who love to sketch.
In the interest of time, I went very simple.
Now I have a very easy inexpensive present for my girls that they will really enjoy!
I hope you can make one for somebody who will really like it too!
