Recently, a friend showed me how to make this nifty book from cardboard, scrapbook paper and ribbons. She printed out monthly calendars using a template from her computer word processing program for us to insert inside.
Scrapbook paper is folded to form a pocket at the bottom of the page.
This book can be used as a daily planner or as a place to keep receipts and tickets and such. I plan to make mine a birthday book.
I am forever embarrassed when a friend remembers my birthday and I don't have the slightest idea when their b'day will roll around. The pockets will be a great place to put cards or other reminders.
My talented friend found the book instructions on a blog that was linked to this website. SIS TV has a list of Webisodes that you can watch and learn how to make all kinds of cute stuff. Check them out whenever you feel like being crafty.
