There is something irreplaceable about a good journal. And they make great gifts!
With Christmas on its way, I am thinking about how I can give a meaningful gifts to friends and neighbors without breaking the bank. I happened across simple kraft paper journals at IKEA a few weeks ago and they inspired this easy DIY gold holiday notebook project.

kraft paper notebooks (similar here)
holiday and alphabet stamps (similar Martha Stewart set here)
gold spray paint or gold stamp pad
While working with spray paint use in a well ventilated area. Spray paper plate with gold paint and apply to stamp. Stamp excess paint on scrap paper before stamping notebook. Sketch out or test the design before applying (or buy an extra notebook to experiment with!)
The result of gold on kraft paper is understated and metallic. I love the combination of gold, kraft and white! These books would make the perfect accent piece to a gift basket or goodie bag.
