Holiday Notebooks

I found these plain notebooks at a local craft store and thought they would make cute Christmas gifts with a little bit of embellishing to dress them up.  Nice teacher gifts too!

To embellish the notebooks I took Whisper White cardstock and stamped snowflakes in random order.  I added different ribbon, buttons and jewels, along with a pen or pencil tied on the side.   A quick and easy project that anyone can do.  These tend to sell well at craft fairs too.

Stampin' Up! products used to embellish the notebooks:
Cardstock:  Whisper White #100730
Stamp Set:  Snow Swirled #111690
Ink:  Real Red #103133, Metallic Gold and Silver (retired)
Ribbon:  Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain #109052, Old Olive 1/4" Grosgrain #111368, Real Red Striped Grosgrain (retired)
Embellishments:  Rhinestones #119246, Brights Designer Buttons #119747, (plus some retired buttons also)
Accessories:  Sticky Strip #104294, Snail Adhesive #104332
