Field Journal/Creative Box

I was fortunate enough
to be an elf 
for Santa this year

A friend had a dilemma
Her dtr wanted a field journal
like in the Tinkerbell movie

She didn't know where to get one
and she posted it on fb

I've made a lot of journals 
so I was up 
for a challenge
and offered to help
 or make one

I started off covering the
 front, back and insides
with glittery cardstock
(from Joanns)
I cut the letters
out with Cricut
using the exclusive alphabet
in the craft room
I added a
Tinkerbell Sticker
and gems

I also added ribbon ties

I covered the pocket
with Tinkerbell paper
(from Joanns)

The tag

(from the movie)

I didn't want to over embellish
since this was her creativity
I gathered it all up 
in a plastic container
and applied her name 
on the outside
(cut out of vinyl
w/Cricut Calligraphy)

I had a lot of extras 
I added into the box
and her Mom bought
some doo-dads too

Santa wrapped it up
for delivery
shhhh don't tell anyone
I helped Santas this yr

I haven't heard yet 
on her reaction


  1. What a great idea! I wish I had a granddaughter or artistic grandson. Maybe I'll have to make one for myself. You are so creative.

  2. What a fabulous fun-filled tote. A real exciting gift box! am now a follower of your blog and look forward to return visits. I invite you to join me as well at Happy New Year. Hugs, Gayle.
