12 Gifts of Christmas: Notebook Set and Stationary

http://www.cosasminimas.com/files/gimgs/40_bakersdozen02.jpg

Since I can’t count and did a baker’s dozen of gift ideas, I decided to extend this series through this week. This week though, my focus is on quick ideas since we’re getting closer and closer to Christmas. Much as I love crafting, there’s nothing worse than feeling rushed when you’re being crafty. For me, that increases the stress by 100!

This is a great gift idea for your child’s teacher or someone who’s an organizer or list maker!

Notebook Set

What you’ll need:
*plastic frame
*scrapbook paper
*ribbon
*post-it notes (I’d suggest the super sticky ones)
*magnets

1.  Cut your scrapbook paper to fit into your plastic frame. Put it into your frame.

2.  Attach your ribbon towards the top of the frame. You can add extra embellishments here if you want too.

3.  Attach your post-it notes.

4.  Glue magnets on the back (optional).

Stationary

What you’ll need:
*small legal size notebook
*scrapbook paper (I’d suggest several coordinating designs)
*spray adhesive
*stapler
*magnet (about the size of a business card)

1.  For the notebook:  Cut your scrapbook paper to fit the back and the overlap on the front. Use the spray adhesive to attach.

2.  For the matchbook notebook:  Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 5″x12″. Cut white pieces of paper (for the notebook part) that measure 4″x4″. On the back side of the scrapbook paper, go down about 2″ and stack your white papers into a notebook. Close that 2″ flap over and staple. Then fold down the long piece of the scrapbook paper. This will tuck under the little flap you created.
  

3.  For the magnet:  Cut a piece of scrapbook paper cover the magnet. Use spray adhesive to attach.

4.  For the stationary:  Cut pieces of scrapbook paper to measure 4″x6″. If you want to make them more like notecards, use the spray adhesive to attach to cardstock too.
