One of Brendan and my little relationship secrets are love notes. That’s right. We write little obnoxiously cute notes to each other. The tradition started thanks to his crazy schedule. I would visit him, he would leave before I woke up, so I would leave a note for him upon his return to the house. Living together allows us to see each other more often, but still waking up to a sweet note and a waiting bagel when he’s been gone all night and already asleep before I get out of the shower is quite fun and always brings smiles.
We always talked about making a note book decided to our little sweet nothings but never got around to it. Finally this Christmas all that changed.
This is one of the quickest and easiest craft projects I have every dreamed up. I snagged the already fun notebooks from Target (3 pack so triple score for me). The other materials included a black Sharpie, and pre sticky craft paper which I already had on hand (scrap book section of your local craft store).
I mimicked the patter on the cover for my “title plate”. Used a circle template and a straight edge, cut it out, added a title and flair around the sides, stuck it to the cover and I was done.
Brendan was BEYOND excited to open them Christmas morning. I even think there was a mini “aww” out of him. Now I get even more excited to find a note since they are now hidden in a beautiful book.
