On the theme of decorated notebooks. what about a travel journal to give to a travel-loving friend? (something to write notes in, glue in maps before hand, etc) or a prayer/hope/wish journal, recipe (Diy Photo Art)
A way of making your indoor plants as decorations is really beautiful :) I don't like the wood-look though. I think airplants are the only ones which will work. Other plants require water drainage etc.
