Christmas wishlists {lawn fawn inspiration week}

christmas wishlists

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of lawn fawn inspiration.  Today, we're showcasing the Peace, Joy, Love paper collection.  It is perfect for holiday card and project crafting!

For my project, I bought a set of 3 mini composition books for 1$ at our local Dollar Store, and made little book jackets for each one:

Nothing super technical or fancy, just measured and scored and folded the papers.

If you have kids in your life, and they are anything like mine, they are starting to yell things whenever commercials come on the tv: "mommy, I neeeeeeeed this!" "mommy, this looks so cool!" "mommy, can we buy this for me?"

My new catch-phrase: put it on your list.  and then we vow to avoid tv-watching for a few days, but that somehow never works out...

I decorated each booklet with the cutest snowman and a banner from winter gifts.  The sentiment is computer-generated.

I hope you like them!  Visit the lawn fawn blog for even more Peace, Joy, Love inspiration.

  2. Okay, so you did it. You made me want the papers. I don't need the papers. But now I have to have the papers. Why are you doing this to me?!?! *wink*

    Love these cute little notebooks Elena! Those snowmen are adorable (you *know* this is my favourite Lawn Fawn set!) and teaming them up with those papers works a treat! A really good, practical idea too!

  7. I do love these! What a cute idea. And I am with you on the commercial thing. It's like they know when my daughter is watching and put on as many Disney Princess ads they can find!
