Making Some Christmas Gifts

Some of my Christmas gifts are handmade. I am SO loving these Hemp Bound Notebooks. This one was made using a single 12" x 12" sheet of decorative paper from Michael's. This paper had the burgundy trim on each side. I cut the paper in half and was able to get that same edge on the front and back.

This notebook used a little more hemp than the other one I had made because I added more holes. I don't really like it as well as the one with only four holes. But it's still eye catching. After I got it all together I was looking at it trying to decide what I wanted to add to the front to decorate it. The more I looked at it the more I realized it didn't need a thing. The paper alone had an elegant look to it and I decided to just add the "Notes" stamp on the bottom and leave it as it was.

One gift down TONS to go!!! LOL

The instructions for the Hemp Bound Notebooks can be found here.

Have fun making them. They are VERY quick to make and they really do make wonderful gifts. Who can't use a notebook????

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
