What I Made for Christmas - #4

Morning all.

Last Christmas make for a couple of posts...I promise. This last one was also a challenge. Amongst all the kids....is 1 nephew (Master 8)...not incl my son of course. His Mum happened to let it slip that he has been engrossed in "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". So,I made him his own diary that he can jot his thoughts and feelings down in. He is the brother of Miss 16 and 14! His diary was also a lot larger than the others (A4), it took 2 pieces of DP to cover it.


For the label, I stamped off the stars in So saffron from the Just Jawing set. Worked well I think!!??


The top was looking a little bare with just the planets and there was a rocket ship on the off cut. I trimmed around it and put it amongst the planets.



I think he was pretty happy with it.

To accompany all the notebooks for the girls, I made tiny desk caddies to hold their bits and pieces. I got the idea from Rubber Redneck (Holly Krautkremer) here. The go up very quickly and hold lots! Perfect for the age group.

Love this little line-up. I may have to create a few of these little caddys to keep in reserve too - they're perfect.
