This turned out really cute and ever part of it can be used in the classroom! Useful gifts = best gifts!!
–cardboard for bottom (we used a 10″ cake circle)
–paper towel roll (1)
–one subject spiral notebooks (3)

–stick glue (6)
–liquid glue (8)
–large rubberbands (4-8)
–plastic bags, i.e. checkout bags from the box stores

Place your notebooks in a stack and hold against your paper towel roll. Wrap a rubberband around the stack and move to about two inches from the bottom of the roll. Place another rubberband around the roll and place about two inches from the top.
Cover the rubberbands with your ribbon by making a rough measurement; cutting the ribbon; an adhering using hot glue. You can either hot glue it to itself on the ends or hot glue it to the rubberband itself. Place silk flower on the different layers as you choose.
