This fabric cover makes a wonderful gift to give someone. You can either put a 6″ wide x 9″ high book in it with paper and pen; or you can fill it with homemade cards and stationery. I gave this gift to my grandmother who loved sending cards. Every year I would refill the Stationery Holder for her with birthday cards and all-occasion cards. You can click on this link for a webpage that has printable homemade cards and stationery
