I made this for my nephew who is a fan of Lego Bionicles. The front and back covers are 5" x 5" Lego base plates. His name is written in caution blocks. The closure is a string with a round 1 x 1 Lego block on each end. It's not a super secure closure, but he'll like it this way. The paper is just a variety of white printer, cream resume, construction, graph and vellum with one page from the packing materials from when I ordered the base plate.

Our malbec is excellent wine - a bit of plum, dry as it should be, clear (could be a little clearer, though), no harsh alcohol, no sharp yeasty taste and no "headache after one glass". It's the first we've made (but under my brother's tutelage) and it really is very good.
