Holiday Pocket Notebooks

Hi! Kathy Martin here with a last-minute holiday project using the awesome November SEI Cardmaking Kit.

You know the feeling of satisfaction you have when all the to-dos have been crossed off your holiday list? Then it hits you like a stocking full of coal that you forgot a gift for your son's teacher or for the neighbor that always brings you a plate of home baked goodies on Christmas eve? Yep, there's always one more thing! Because this happens to me just about every Christmas, I make a few little 'extra' gifts like these pocket notebooks. They're perfect for stocking stuffers or the unexpected guest auntie brings to the party.

These notebooks were created with mini composition books I purchased at Staples and assembled in minutes by sprucing them up with the goodies included in your November SEI Cardmaking kit! I simply measured the notebooks and cut patterned paper to size. Then I used a rounder punch for the corners before adhering the paper to the notebook. Once covered, accent with a few stickers, using foam adhesive tape if you like a little dimension. That's it! So simple! Now you can put your feet up and sip a cup of cocoa!

I hope you've enjoyed SEI's November Cardmaking kit! And I hope I was able to give you more helpful and fun ways of using the supplies in your kit. I look forward to doing it all again with the next kit. Happy holidays everyone!

Kathy Martin

The other day I bought 30 notebooks for my family to use when we do our Christmas lists at Thanksgiving. Wondered how to decorate them. This is the answer. Thank you
