Teacher gift set

Hello there crafters!
A couple of weeks ago a dear friend of mine  asked me to create a gift set for the 2 teachers of her son. I recently got a lovely month rubber stamp set in a crafting magazine I regularly buy and therefore thought I would put it to good use at once. So I put together a cute birthday book with 12 pages, one for each month, where teachers can jot down the birthdates of their pupils if they like. The pages are made out of small envelope which I stamped with a swirly background stamps, while the cover was made out of a cereal box which I covered with some floral designer paper. I poked holes in all the layers with my Big Bite (love that tool!) and bound the book with some ribbon. The inside cards where made with white cardstock and the corner were punched with my envelope punch board so as to look like file folders.
I'm really happy how the set turned out. Unfortunately I finished late and had no time to further decorate the front of the book. I just added a silver charm to the ribbon and called it good.
I obviously made a matching card to go with the book and I decided to keep it simple as it was already late at night and I was running out of time.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely beginning of week! :D
Love, Vittoria
