Mini Christmas Notebook

Mini notebooks are quick to alter and are so much fun to make.  They make perfect little stocking stuffers or quick gifts for co-workers.  I made a bunch last Christmas for the women in the ER.  You can make them super simple like the one seen here, or you can add a few extra steps and make it like today's post.  The simple ones take a matter of minutes and I find that they are great to have on hand for that forgotten gift.


Here's what you need:
3 Girl JAM - Mistletoe crinkle ribbon
3 1/4" X 4 1/2" Mini notebook
Holiday Inspirations tissue paper
Americana "Napa Red" acrylic paint
Tim Holtz - Christmas Adornments
Mod Podge and Scor-Tape
Stamps - Recollections (no name); Close to My Heart - Very Merry Christmas and Everlasting Love Holidays
Studio 18 bling- Holiday Home
Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs, Pine Needles, Festive Berries
2" circle punch
Christmas paper - scrap from my stash

I hope you enjoy this short video that will also show you the inside of the book.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
