Welcome to my first "Arts and Crafts" blog :) If you haven't read my about me...yup, aside from cooking i love me some DIY's as well. ;)
(May 24, 2012)
I love, love personalized and unique gifts. I got the idea from Design Sponge . I love the concept, i have to make it. I made one for my niece who just welcomed a very pretty bundle of joy. I thought, what a great way to document the arrival of the baby. A one line journal is perfect for a busy mom to write down important or unforgettable memories and something i know they will enjoy in years to come.
An inexpensive and easy project and yet it'll be a priceless gift for sure!!!!
I bought the materials from the dollar store and spent $4 total.
Box - $1
6 packs of Index Cards (3 in. x 5 in) 2 for $1
*buy 1 pack colored index card
Ribbon -2 pieces (cut 12 inches length)
If you don't have a ribbon find anything to tie or bundle the index cards.
Love the box!
I'm telling you...everything worked out perfectly!!!! FIT TO A TEE ;)
You will need the ribbon for these reasons
1) To bundle/tie the cards per month
2) To indicate the current month
3) To make it easy to pull out the cards.
Like i mentioned, i like personalized gift so i opted to have the labels handwritten.
Divide each months with the colored index cards.
Write the month and dates on each cards.
Organize the cards according to months and dates.
