Small(cheap) gift idea.

Well its the start of another week and Christmas.... yes ....Christmas will be with us all to soon.
I don't have a lot of spare money, but like to give little gifts to friends... 
something small that can be posted cheaply... cost very little but show that I care enough to spend my time creating something.
I bought a pack of A7 size note books.... they came coverless..... in a pack of 12 for a pound!
 I used good quality stamping card to make the covers,
stamped my images, then coloured .... I adhered them to the pads then covered them with clear sticky back plastic... the stuff you use to cover text books. This way the little note pads will last well in a handbag.
So far i've only made 3.... 9 more to go!

Very nice gifts indeed! Who wouldn't want to receive such a beautiful notebook. You are right that the fact that you spend time making something beautiful, personal, is worth more than anything you can buy.

Inderdaad hele mooie cadeautjes! Wie zou er niet zo'n mooi notitieboekje willen ontvangen. Je hebt gelijk dat het feit dat je er tijd aan besteedt om iets moois en persoonlijks te maken meer waard is dan iets dat je kunt kopen.
