Racking my brain to figure out what to do for gifts for the family on an incredibly limited (read; nonexistent) budget was killin me!
A stroke of genius!
No! Definitely not genius, but certainly a pretty good idea…if I do say so myself.
I was staring at these scraps of white cardstock that have been taking up space in my craft tote for months now and it occurred to me…”Hey, those are just about the right size for bookmarks.” So…knowing that nobody (but the incredibly untrained and forgiving eyes of Justice) wants to see artwork of mine, I decided that Justice’s love for coloring was going to pay off!
So…guess what the fam is getting this year??
That’s right fab fans and followers. Homemade bookmarks a la Justice!
So easy but heartfelt and personal. Bingo baby!
She had quite a good time making these (as is evidenced still on her hands) and everyone gets to enjoy her artwork now.
We’re also going to be making some handprint ornaments which I’m quite looking forward to. Can’t go wrong with flour, salt, water, and paint! I’m loving the whole handmade gift thing! I’ll post the source and pics of the ornaments either tomorrow or Wednesday when I get them done.
Hope you enjoy this quick little craft/gift. If you have any along these lines, PLEASE! share
