One of my besties had a birthday coming up, so I tried to think of things that I really love to do with her. I couldn’t think of any one thing, but wanted to give her something that would keep us spending time together, since it’s sometimes hard with all of our commitments these days. So I came up with a date book.
This is it before I got the ribbon tied.. I somehow failed to get a picture of the final product :-( Anyways, what I did was give a 2-week time period for each date. For example, sometime between April 12th -25th, we’re going to try a new recipe to make together (and this comes with money for ingredients). All we have to do is find a time to book our “date,” then follow the instructions. She received it really well and I’m definitely looking forward to the dates!
I cut my pages a few inches longer than the book size so I could fold the bottom up to create a pocket. Also, the cover pages are slightly bigger than the rest, with rounded corners.
I attached eyelets to the holes to keep them from ripping and make it easy to tie them with ribbon.
I slipped “date cards” inside the pockets along with anything needed for the dates, like gift cards.
