Homemade Gift Ideas Personalized Notebook

I made a personalized notebook for my great niece using a 1inch notebook with a plastic overlay.  I purchased these at Sam's Club.  I think they were either a 4 pack or 6 pack...can't remember but they end up being less than $2.00 each. 

I used a free program from Kodak to make the page and printed it on photo paper from my printer.  She is crazy about horses and one of the pages happened to have a horse theme.  I purchased a nice 5 pen package of roller writers from Office Depot for less than $4.00.



Inside the notebook I added a writing pad, some notebook paper and some page protectors.

  1. Really nice, Mamma Bear! Our great niece (now 13 years old) first learned to ride on one of our horses, Katie. I used a notebook like this and slipped a page under the cover on the outside titled it 'A Cowgirl's Story' ...inside, I wrote a short little kid's style story about Cheyenne's weekend with Katie. Two pictures on each page with more or less descriptions of the pictures. But I put them in order of how it happened for her that weekend so it came out like a story. She loved it then and still loves it now. I know she'll outgrow being impressed by it at some point but I hope it will be something she keeps to show to her kids someday.

  2. I love the idea of a story and I bet your niece will treasure it on into adulthood. Makes me wish I had made a story for Chloe now!!! Guess she'll have to write her own!
