Large Notepad Gifts

As I have mentioned before, I am handmaking alot of our Christmas gifts this year. I've been working on these for several months now and have finally finished them. I bought these notepads at Sam's almost a year ago and had these four left so I decided to decorate them for gifts. I can't seem to find this size notepad anymore which is sad because I love the way they turned out. I have personalized each one with the recipients favorite colors and/or likes and I will adhere a magnet so they can hang them on their refrigerators if they choose.

My sister's --- She likes very rustic and neutral tones...
My mom's --- She likes bugs as much as I do and I love these bees, and you can't use bees with any other colors than yellow, black and white...
My sister in law --- Her favorite colors are hot pink and a bold green. She used these colors in her wedding. You can't tell in the pic, but the pink background has a flower/scroll image in versa mark...
Our friend's daughter --- She is the one having a baby in January (a little girl, therefore using pink and green) so I am hoping she uses hers to take notes on how to raise a child, given her age and lack of real world knowledge...
Stay tuned to more posts as I am going to be a gift making machine over the next several weeks.
