A Book Lover's Gift

 So really I should've been making cards but I fancied something a bit different.
With the knowledge that I needed a little something extra for a certain person for Christmas I set about making a Book Club Journal.


I covered chipboard for the cover and added elastic to the back cover as a closure.


I found a great template here and printed about 25 pages onto A5 paper. Using my bind-it-all to join the pages and a back cover, I then stuck it all inside with a loop for a pen.



As it's a Book Journal I thought a bookmark and notepad would be appropriate too


I placed these inside a pocket in the front cover.
 I can now wrap it up and place under the Christmas Tree and eagerly await the recipient's reaction....
