Fill your favorite sandwich bread with its various contents and then use the cookie cutter to pinch the ends off.
Before the we had all these fancy gadgets, all of our notes and writing were stored in one of these.

Make one of these personalized journals to keep handy in your bag whenever you don’t have time to pull out your laptop!
