Personalized Christmas Gifts


Sorry it has taken me so long to post, but I have been under the weather and also extremely busy with Christmas just right around the corner...only 14 days left...can you believe that?? Where did all the time go??...I am extremely behind with all my present shopping, but I did find some time this past weekend to make some Personalized Planners for 2009...They are super easy and inexpensive to make...Target has these planners in their dollar section...First I took the plastic cover off the planner, then I measured, cut and glued my patterned paper to the outside of the planner itself...I used some of 3M's spray glue for this task...It holds really well and is super tacky, but be careful not to spray it on any furniture...I embellished the paper with some wide black and white polka dot ribbon, again I used some spray glue to adhere it to the paper...For the personalization, I used my JustRite stamps...I used the borders and centers set along with the curlz font set to create the monograms on the 1 &5/8" wooden stamper...The JustRite stampers make personalization so easy and they have so many cool products!! I want them all!! I cut out a black scallop circle using my nestabilities and popped it up with foam mounting tape, just to add a little dimesion...Once everything was dry, I put the plastic cover back on the planner and waaalaaa...a new personalized planner...The entire project took less than 15 minutes...You can't beat that!! Hope everyone has a great day!! Thanks for stopping by!!
