Last Minute Christmas Gift Idea
Looking for a last minute gift for grandparent's or other's that love your family just as much as you? You already have all the supplies, so why not make a photo book with photos and stories from each month of the year. I started with a sketch from Jessica Sprauge, altering it where it felt appropriate and added some embellishments to the cover for a custom look.
Please excuse the photo here, my mom enjoys a little potty humor.
Using the sketch, this came together in an afternoon. To make it even quicker, use a paper stack or other coordinated kit. I know Grandma will enjoy this (if only because she asked for it last year) and it's a far better than any purchased gift.
Have you finished all your handmade gifts or do you wait til the last minute?
Supplies: October Afternoon Fly A Kite and Thrift Shop 8x8 paper stacks, Inkadinkado month stamps
