Over the Christmas period, I managed to make two simple sketchbooks as presents. These were just bound using twine, with washi tape to hold the twine in place (I really want to learn proper bookbinding in the future!). Here's one for a little boy:
|Paper and rocket die-cut from the "Children at Play" collection from Making Memories.|
I used a crystal flourish from Zva Creative, pasted it on white cardstock and trimmed it, to make the bling stand out more from the stripes:
And one for a little girl (I really miss working in pink!):
|Papers from American Crafts (lots of Dear Lizzy!), leaves and pearls from Zva Creative.|
Am hoping these would be put to good use by their recipients. Junior J's own sketchbook is filling up and getting very battered, so I think it might be time to make him a new one too! Blessed weekend!
