Hi everyone :)
So I wanted to share a little mini book I made :)
We had a White Elephant gift game/exchange at work in December ... after I "lost" my gift pick during the game ... I was sooooooooo upset because I had "lost" the gift bag too!! ... You see, I had HUGE plans for this bag ...
And I whined, and I cried, and I whined, and I cried ... that noooooooooooo!! I wanted that gift bag!!! I had PLANS for that BAG!!!! PLEASE give me the bag back!!!
So the person that got my gift that I "lost" ... gave me the bag back!! Not the gift ... lol ... but the BAG!!! But that's ok ... I just wanted the bag!!! :)
Because you see, I had this plan in my head :)
I buy Christmas gifts all year long ... I start right after Christmas buying gifts for this year ...
But there is a HUGE problem with doing that ...
By the time Christmas comes around ... I have forgotten half the gifts I have bought! LOL :)
So I wanted to make a mini book to keep a list of what I have bought so that I know by Christmas who still needs gifts and who doesn't :)
So here is what I made to keep track :)
The cover ... using the GIFT BAG I wanted :)
For the pages I used the December kit from Scraptastic Club :)
On the inside page, I took the extra pages and put them in an envelope for future uses :)
I took each person that we buy presents for and gave them a page -- then I listed 1 through 5 twice -- that way I can use this for two years in a row (and the extra pages I put in the envelope above will hold pages for years later!)
I also didn't adhere the pages down -- I punched a hole in the side of each "name" page and stitched twine to hold my page in place ... that way after the two years are up ... I can easily replace the pages :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
