December Daily-May Arts Crafter's Home

I have a post up on the Crafters Home blog go leave a comment there to win 5 spools of ribbon:)

Jenifer Cowles, May Arts Cameo Ribbonista, is here today to share her delightful December Daily project!

I thought since December Daily Albums were as popular as ever I’d share a small one I created for this year’s December Daily. It’s 4×6 and is small enough I can put it in my purse and carry it around with me to jot things down.
Here is the cover, the spine, and some of the guts.
Since this book is going to get pretty plump with all of the goodies I plan on filling it with I made a “Book Belt” to hold it closed.  To do this – sew 2 layers of ribbon together and then sew D rings at one end and loop the other end of the ribbons thru the rings, just like a belt!
Here are some of my favorite pages.  A great way to use up some of your ribbon scraps.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work today! I hope I’ve inspired you to create and try a December daily for yourself!
