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!
