Just a thought. How about a cute set of magnets? Like a 4 piece set in a little box?

The bracelet looks impressive, good photo of it. How many of us are going to up our beverage consumption, and give it a try?

If any of you subscribe to the WISEBREAD blog, yesterday they posted this article: 25 Gifts You Can Make Today

I haven't had a chance to look through it all but possibly might be some ideas here.

I was wondering if the bracelet was made with elastic cord, it would need to stretch somehow to take off and on.

I have to tell you that I was at a Family reunion today and I saw one AUnt with a bottlecap necklace. One with bottlecap earrings, and a little niece also with the bottlecap necklace. Too cute. But thought of your post!

Simple wedding favors: My niece's wedding color was simply red. I punched the flower shape out in red and punched a circle shape Black and white photo of the couple(their engagement pic which was perfect because their heads were close together-important because of the small size) and taped these onto the circle mints-since York peppermint patties are no longer packaged in a circle shape, I bought another brand from Costco that still packages them as a circle. Then I did some the opposite-the circle shape-a little larger punch in red and then a smaller flower punch shape on top with their names and wedding date on it. both were backed in red in the flower shape.

This thread is always so inspirational. Thank you everyone for all the wonderful ideas.
I haven't seen this one listed (although it may be and I missed it), but I recently made a "gift box" for a friend who has everything (and can afford anything she wants!). I used a plain white pizza box (unused!) and inside I put some folded sheets of giftwrap, 1 yd. square x 4, (cheap brown paper stamped in white and navy ink), white, blue and beige tissue paper, matching kraft gift tags x 10, 6 small gift cards & envelopes, also stamped with matching images and "to" and "from", 4 x birthday cards and kraft envelopes, 2 get well cards, 2 just because cards, 2 thank you cards, and 2 blank cards. Also in the box were rolls of ribbon in white and navy polka dots, and a roll of jute/twine for wrapping, a small roll of Sellotape, a roll of doublesided tape, a dark blue gel pen and a white gel pen, some paper and felt flowers and punched leaves for decorating the gifts, and some hat pins with blue, white and brown beads and sequins on them, also for decorating the gifts. The whole pizza box was tied with a big blue ribbon.
I'm sure you can think of other good ideas for the contents too.
My friend loved it and said it's so nice to have co-ordinating giftwrap etc. for last minute gifts. I want to make another one so will post pics here when I do.

Tilly,

What a great idea, I love pizza boxes. A few Christmases ago I took plain white pizza boxes, and baked big sugar cookies in disposable pizza pans, decorated the cookies like big ornaments, tied them up with red ribbon, embellished the boxes. Easy baking, pizza pans are cheap, and the restaurant only charged me very little for the boxes. May have to make a pass by there soon, and store up a few more boxes.


Keep them coming ladies, holidays are coming. I need to go get a big bottle of vodka, and start some homemade vanilla extract, for gift giving.

Can you share the recipe, please???? It sound intriguing!

I did a baby gift with a pizza box. Used a yellow blanket as the "crust" and garnished it with different baby items to look like a pizza and put it in the pizza box. It was the hit of the shower! Wish I had a pic to share, but I don't, sorry.

Hey Monica,


Good idea, it's amazing how much you can get done in those lunch hours. Years ago, I went on a liquid diet (me and Oprah did it together), and I did cross stitch during my lunch breaks. I got a gorgeous piece done that is still hanging in a relatives home. I brought my cuttlebug with me today, I am going to emboss cardstock for baby shower invitations.

The vanilla extract is made with vanilla beans, and vodka. There are several websites that pretty much use the same recipe, three vanilla beans per cup of vodka. Pour 8 oz of vodka into a clean class container, split the vanilla beans open, drop in the vodka, seal up, store in dark cool place for two months. The jar needs to be shaken occasionally. The vodka does not have to be a pricey brand.

I am going to pick up a few small canning jars, they will be the perfect size, 4 oz I think, embellish them, bake some cookies with the extract. So cookies, extract, recipe card in a small basket. A great gift idea.

It is cheaper to buy the vanilla beans on line, way too expensive per bean to buy in grocery stores.

Cool

I got to reading more sites on the extract making, to produce anything close to what you buy off the shelves, it takes 6-8 vanilla beans per 8 oz of vodka. Grade b banilla beans can be used. I am going to search out some web sites, see who has the best prices on vanilla beans.

Probably one of the better ideas I've had! I have enough squares cut out to make at least 5 baby sized rag quilts, 9 box bottoms (need to make lids yet) for A2 sized cards. Today is finishing cutting the batting for the quilts and tomorrow is making card bases. I've been searching ideas on here with stamp sets I HAVE instead of looking at ones that I don't have and then want to buy. I've booked into 5 craft sales for Christmas - hope my plan works!

Default Agnels and Santa Claus and a Heart Wreath, too!

I collect antique postcards that are about 100 years old. I have the Santa series from Tuck, and they are going to be made into cards for this year. I have a ton of angels for Christmas, and I posted them all on my blog, and you can download any of them for your cards and projects. This is the Rose Heart Wreath that I am going to use, too. I plan on embellishing the cards with beads and fabric and all sorts of stuff!

Before you alter the post cards, have them checked by a reputable stamp dealer. They may be worth something but once you change that by embellishing, their value decreases. Just a thought-my dad was a stamp dealer!

I could have used your post months ago! I simply had to buy the stamps for the projects I saw, such as the 'Holiday Lineup' stamp for making the "poops". At least I am using a snowman I already had to make the snowman kisses, and I bought some of the Christmas stamps from a garage sale because they were retired. I love all the ideas on this thread.

Hi Tat2girl!
I hope you enjoy them! I post a bit each day. I want to put up the pictures of my collection that I love the most. And, at the end of the month, I want to put up the cards that I have made from them. They be packed, cause I am moving at the end of the month to Virginia. I am in the mode for housewarming cards to create, cause I will want to send those out to family and friends, once we get settled. Got any good ideas for housewarming stamps?

Does anybody know of a supplier for the rare earth magnets at a reasonable price?

I am searching for 1/2" size or larger please. Etsy costs are way too high, and so are e-bay.
I am sure I found some cheaper before, but can't remember where. Thx.

If you have the Candy Wrapper die from SU, here is an excellent video and how to make it longer:

Last week I posted about a pizza box gift wrap and card mix idea I had made (no pics), but I have since found a blog with a similar idea that you may find interesting. It's a variation on what I made, but of course there are endless options depending on how big or small or detailed you would like to make it. (You probably have most of the supplies on hand anyway, so not much to buy.) Here's the link:
