Along with an Envelope Flip Book, shared here: https://youtu.be/qB222mq1u58, I sent my friend a Recollections Traveler's Notebook from Michaels all set up for the winter holiday season. I used the same Hot Buy paper pad, called North Pole Gazette by Craft Smith, that I used to create the flip book. Both projects coordinate so that she has some additional goodies to use with this TN.
Here's a short video flip through the TN, and below are some pictures of it.
I love to add extra goodies like a washi tape card and stickers.
Inside the first insert is a little pocket with some journaling cards/cut aparts. I also added a gift shaped paperclip with another onto the first page.
The second insert I covered with this sweet deer paper with coordinating card to decorate it.
Here's the third insert - that's actually a double folder. I thought this paper was perfect because her name is Noelle, get it :)
More surprises are inside the folder, planner stickers and memo paper with a cardinal design plus another insert, that sweater design is perfect for the winter season.
Here's the last insert. This black, cream, and red color scheme is different than my usual aesthetic, which leans toward bright, kawaii, and cutesy but this is more suitable to the recipient's taste and I hope she loves it.
