Challenge #42 - A gift for festivals : Made with Love

Hello my dear friends,

Kripa here to reveal the next challenge at Lulupu.
With sweet memories of Deepavali and preparations for Christmas and New Year in mind, we have a special challenge for you all this month

Challenge #42
A gift set for festivals
(like New Year e.g.- Card with matching box, gift bags with tags, Easel card and box, Altered notebook/matching stationary)
(You can find the general guidelines to challenges here)

And as always we have a prize too

I altered a notebook into a planner to give as a New Year gift for a very special person.
The original book had plain black covers. I pulled apart the ring, took off the pages and put it back together with 4 dividers in place. The front and back cover have also been altered. The photographs below are only of the dividers without the blank pages in between, so that its easier to capture both front and back of each divider.

Along with the book, included are a dozen journaling cards, a handful of embellishments, washi tape and a gel pen.
 Some of the inside pages have intentionally been left blank, so she can alter them the way she wants.
 The pages have been given a light coat of clear gesso so they can be painted on easily and the colour won't soak through.
Finally, here is the back cover and the front again
Here is a list of supplies used
