DIY Stocking Stuffer Idea with Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas

Stampin-up-cookie-cutter-christmas-notebook-stocking-stuffer-aToday's project is a stocking stuffer idea with  the Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle.  It's a remake of yesterday's cute Halloween project.

These little notepads would be so cute to tuck in a stocking.  Or, keep a basket of these ready to hand out to little ones who visit during the Christmas season.
