Have you ever wondered what kind of gift to give a friend who is sick, lost a loved one, or needs encouragement? I stumbled onto these gifts for someone who needs encouragement and it’s a brilliant idea. These are especially a good gift for someone with cancer. Consider adding to a cancer gift basket as an inspirational gift.
It’s a great idea that won’t take much work but will make a great impact. In 5 minutes you can make a gift that keeps on giving.
DIY Notebook Supplies:
- Assorted scrapbook paper
- Blank journal
- Scissors or paper cutter
Step 1: To make this gift for someone with cancer (or anyone needing encouragement) follow video instructions for turning scrapbook paper into an envelope.
Step 2: Glue your envelopes to your black notebook. A glue stick should work as long as you let it fully dry.
Step 3: Write your titles on the notebook.
Step 4: Insert personalized notes into your envelopes.
Watch to see what the inspirational gifts look like when it’s complete! This is such a clever and heartfelt idea.
