Bookmarks and Journals

A few months ago,  I made some bookmarks and journals for gifts.
I took photos to share with you, and then forgot about them.
But I found them yesterday!
 I upcycled a tailor's tape measure I found at Target.  
I love this color, but they also had pink.
I made bird's nest charms from tutorials I saw at Just Something I Made (she has an amazing collection of tutorials on her blog).
 I made this one based on Andrea Singarella's beautiful inspiration.
It was frustrating, because I'm finding
I need to order good craft supplies online because
stores like Michaels and Jo-Ann Fabric
have a really terrible selection. Terrible.
It turned out ok, but I would love to order some
better supplies in the future and try again.
 I bought these small journals at Target's Dollar Spot,
and just added some stamped charms.
 Target also had these little chevron bags, which I used to wrap the journal.
It turned out to be a pretty cute gift for $2.00 plus supplies I already had.

I saw these on Pinterest and wondered if they were yours? So cute! The perfect gift for book worm buddies.
