This would be a perfect gift for a teen girl to use as her diary, or find an artist's sketch book with blank pages for your budding Picasso. While the cheerful bird design is perfect, I can imagine a simple cat, a horse or a star (think about using your cookie cutters to help create the simple shapes).

Very cute!
