Daily Journal Gift March 17, 2012

I’ve been trying to think of the perfect going away gift for a friend leaving Chicago for sunny Florida!  I’ve been logging a daily journal (of course inspired by Pinterest) since December and I figured this was the perfect gift for my friend.  I save my calendars from year to year and I was able to look up all the fun things my friend and I have done together.  I logged these dates on her calendar!


To get this project started, I gathered up some 4 x 6 index cards.  I cut them in half (now 4 x 3).  I used my colorful sharpies to write in each date of the year (the most time-consuming part of this project).  I was recently at the airport, so I collected a bunch of Chicago post cards.  I cut up the cards to be slightly larger than the index cards and used the post cards to separate each month.  I used a white container to hold everything together and tied a blue ribbon around it all!


I think this is such a fun gift idea!  You could use these as housewarming gifts, hostess gifts, or even Christmas gifts for all the ladies in your life.  The project is fairly inexpensive, too!  I am updating my daily journal so it looks nicer!  I’m using stamps for the dates.  I’ll post pictures once completed!
