Pretty mini hand made notebooks

Sometimes a little handmade gift can just add a smile to someones face. A little token to show you thought of them can speak volumes. This quick and easy handmade mini notebook gift is an easy yet striking little gift. You can add these in with a birthday card or as an extra small gift. Great for crafty swaps, teacher gifts, team swaps... the possibilities are endless.

Using a great set and great colours really makes this simplistic project look special. I chose the Colourful seasons bundle and focused on the sting themed branch and blossoms. Simple stamping wth just one blossom cut out using the co-ordinating thinlits. The blossom is then raised on a diminutional with a small pearl added to the centre. 

I shaped the tag like ends of the notebook using a 1/2" hole punch and just nipped off the corners. The same method is used on the stampin layer giving a fancy corner which then shows a tad more of the beautiful coloured card stock beneath. Adding a hole in the top with a hole punch means the beautiful co-ordinating crinkle seam binding can be used to fasten the book together with a pretty bow.

In all a fantastically effective little project yet easy enough for anyone to re create, I do have a step by step tutorial for you to craft along to and create this project yourself. measurements are below along with the products used. these can be purchased directly by clicking the photos. Sograb a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video tutorial...
