Handmade Christmas gifts...the start...

This year, I got the idea that I wanted to hand make a lot of my Christmas gifts. I've been terribly inspired by so many of the ideas at Papertrey...notepads, stationery, calendars...I'm very excited to be able to try these kinds of things for the first time. My first project to try was these adorable altered notepads. I bought them from Papertrey along with a stamp set designed specifically to make these called Take Note. I got the ideas for the covers from many of the different designer's blogs. They turned out so cute! I decided to make these as teacher gifts, so I made these into "Books to Read" lists. I can't wait to make more! (I'll post them as soon as I do!)

Materials used:
Cover template downloaded from a Papertrey download (I don't have the link handy but it's on one of the release posts for the stamp set "Take Note")
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up
Ribbon: CTMH
Buttons: Basic Grey & other assorted
