DIY This Sweet Stocking Stuffer

If you’re running out of last minute gift ideas for your friends and loved ones, we have a solution for you. Simply personalize a notebook or sketchbook and make it unique. I always carry notebooks and sketchbooks with me whether I go, just in case there’s an idea I need to jot down, a list I need to make, or something that’s worth sketching. I feel they become an essential in everyone’s daily life and will make a great last minute gift for someone.

Here’s how I customized a sketch book for one on my friends:

I gathered bits and bobs from around my home like lace trims and old charms from necklaces that I don’t wear anymore.

Then simply use glue and a needle and thread to decorate how you like.
