Hello! Happy Friday to YOU! Today is extra special for me because my hubby is on his way home as we speak. Yay! ;) He has been gone all week, and I am so ready to have him back home. Today I’d love to share an awesome & easy gift idea ~ a personalized journal. Two of my sons have birthdays in the next few months, and these are their gifts. Shhhhh! Don’t tell! ha! It’s kind of a tradition in our family to get a new journal on your birthday. I kept a journal growing up, & I love looking back & reading them. I want my kiddos to have the same experience. So keep reading to see how easy these were to put together. :)
First you’ll use your die cutter to cut out labels with some washi adhesive sheets. If you love washi tape your are going to LOVE this stuff. It’s awesome! :)
Here is what your die cut label will look like after you’re done. So cute! ;)
Then you’ll remove the backing.
Then stick it right on the front of your journal.
Then I just used some vinyl lettering (you could also use stickers) to add the age my sons will be to the front! I know ~ 17 & 11!! Eek!! Where does the time go? They are growing up way too fast!
Anyways, let’s move on before I tear up! haha! ;) Then I added their names in vinyl across the front. All done! :)
I hope they enjoy them, & I really hope they fill them with fun things, life lessons, things that happen in their lives & feelings they have so they can look back on them later on! :)
Do you have a favorite gift you give to your kiddos? I’d love to hear. :)
