Birthday Present

I saw these ideas in the Cards and papercraft magazine and just had to make some for my SIL birthday present. I was going to alter a note book for her as well but being on nights got in the way. I really like the calender one and think I will try and create one all for myself ;) I found the outside of the folder easy enough but sticking the recipe holders inside were a pain and if I was to do it again I would use 'strong' glue rather than sticky tape as a couple of mine fell apart and wasn't as nice looking as I wanted for a present. My Sister in laws 'real' present was a grapefruit scented candle she thought I wouldn't be able to get one but ha after a 'lot' of research I tracked one down ;)
