It's hard to believe that Christmas is only 6 days away and I'm sure for most of you, you're still trying to get everything done on your list. Today I'm back on the Graphic 45 blog sharing with you a last minute gift idea. Do you have notebooks lying around? Why not cover them using Graphic 45's Off to The Races collection as I have. Make sure to read all the way down in my post as I have a tutorial so you can recreate my covered notebooks at home. You'll want to head over to the Graphic 45 blog to check out the rest of the photos of my project as well as fellow design team member Aneta who has also created a fabulous Christmas project for you.
Covering notebooks is a lot of fun and an easy way to personalize it for the recipient.
Tip: Mix paper, chipboard and metal embellishments to create lots of interest on the front of your notebook.
Tip: Slightly roll one of the corners either up or down on the postage stamps to give extra dimension.
