Hello everyone!

Do you know the "little thoughts" you make at Christmas? Small gifts for friends and acquaintances, so usually you're more in trouble than for important gifts!

They have to be within the budget, to be useful and beautiful, but not too demanding, to be original and possibly hand-made... in short, these are the “little thoughts”!

Ehm…in my opinion, they are called that because they give more to think about!


So, this year I opted for these notebooks “all- in-one”. All- in-one because on the cover I created both a pocket that wraps around the entire notebook (in which to insert, sheets, notes ...) and a small envelope in which to put staples, tweezers, rubber and other small stationery.


To make them I chose *Icy Winter Season* paper pack collection: it’s very fine and elegant. Here's how I made them.


First I created the cover by cutting a white Bazzill cardstock to the size 28x21 cm and I folded it in half on the long side, obtaining the size 14x21. On the front I glued the patterned paper that measures 13.6x20.6 cm.

At this point I created the pocket: I cut a 30x10 cm strip of *Special paper Garzato Bianco* (very resistant!) and folded along the long side at 1, 15 and 29 cm. While on the short side I folded at 1 cm. I cut the corners to create the fins, I positioned the pocket around the entire cover and glued the flaps inside.


I inserted the sheets (photocopy sheets cut at 28x21 cm and folded in half), I made 3 holes on the back of the notebook and I bound with some gray twine: you can insert a bell or a tassel if you want. On the pocket made with the white special paper, I glued a large tag (*Hanging Tag* die set) horizontally, leaving the upper side free, so as to create another pocket. Above I glued the little envelope created with the *Gift Card Holder* die.


For the green notebook I added a tag, while on the blue notebook I added a large paper clip made with a banner folded in half (*Banner* die) and embellished all the time with the banners made from the *Special paper Kraft/matt silver* , the snowflake (die *Snowflakes Set*) and *Stickers Icy Winter* combined with the collection.


I hope you enjoyed the idea!

Thanks and see you soon!

Francesca.
