3 Quick & Easy Handmade Book Gifts

Many of us enjoy creating handmade gifts for friends and family. Here are three tutorials to help you whip up some last minute gifts.

Quick & Easy Leather Journal

This little book is a great beginner project. You don’t need to use leather – try upholstery fabric, cork fabric, canvas or Kraft-tex instead. As a bonus, add a fun belly band closure.

Folded Book for Gift Cards

Use up some fun holiday scrapbook paper to make this quick and easy folded book – no glue or stitching necessary. Put an Amazon gift card, cash or little not inside one of the pockets. Finish up with a fun button or bead closure. Make sure to use a thinner paper, such as wrapping paper, for this project.

Quote Book for a Book Lover

Create this super easy book to collect quotes or notes. Personalize it with fun decorative napkins and vintage papers. Don’t have access to library cards? No problem, grab a stack of index cards instead. If you don’t have a ring, join the book together with pretty ribbon or twine.
