A Few Gifts Giving Ideas...

A lot of the posts leading up till Christmas will be gift-type tutorials, because that's what I'll be busy doing until Christmas.  However, I know a lot of you have recently started following my blog.  Keeping that in mind I thought I'd link you up to a few gift ideas from the past that you might have missed.  Here we go!

This is a memory jar.  What do you do with it?

You give it away as a gift to someone you love.  Just fill it up with your favorite memories of that person, written on slips of paper.  Decorate the jar and voila!  You have a meaningful gift for someone you care about.  Read the full post HERE.

Next up is the world's best bookmark.  It's a great gift for any reader and it's not your average bookmark.

Here's a close-up of the bookmark.  Get the full tutorial HERE.

How about a sketch pad/journal?  Pick up a plain one and make it special for someone.

Up for a little painting?  Paint a "Be" sign for about $5.  Click HERE for the full tutorial.

Have a young boy on your list that you have no ideas for?  How about a manly cuff!  (They are selling cuffs like this in all the trendy teenage shops as well.  So yes, you can give one to a teenage boy as well - not just a little guy.)

Click HERE for the full tutorial.  Don't want to make one?  Buy a leather one in my Etsy shop "Roar."

If you drop into the Etsy shop, you can also buy my Retro Pointed Bow Tie pattern for $4.99 and make bowties galore for any little guys on your list.  It's very simple sewing.  Find the pattern HERE.

Last but not least is the Photo ABC Book.  This is a great gift to make for multiple kids.  Just print off as many copies of the pictures as you need. 

It's fun to be able to use pictures of distant family members, too.  Click HERE for the full tutorial.

Hopefully you saw a post here that you might have missed.  And, if you've been reading my blog so long that none of these posts are new to you....then thank you so much for following me.  I'm glad you've been around for so long.

See you tomorrow for Feature Friday.
