Christmas Gift

This week's challenge at
The Kraft Journal Blog
is to create and share a Christmas gift.
We have the tradition of giving the kids new pj's and a book on Christmas Eve.
Well, now that there are grown and living away from home
I give them a gift card to a book store.
To make the gift a bit more fun I made this
reading journal and gift bag for my daughter.
I altered a $1 bin notebook and Kraft gift bag from Michael's.

The Kraft Outlet: Lunch bag Kraft CS, black twill tape, Kraft Baker's Twine,
Library Pocket, Silver-rimmed circle tag, and Tim Holtz Reinforcers
stamps: Papertrey Ink
Papers: Crate Paper "Random" line
I will put the gift card in the pocket.
The library card "tag" can double as a bookmark.
