Recipe Exchange

To go along with the recipe clipboard we are going to have a recipe exchange. Depending on how many people participate, will depend on how many copies of the one recipe you will provide for each person. We will also have a mini photo album that we will turn into a recipe book. A picture will be posted as soon as I make the album. The recipe should be printed or written on a 4 X 6 size card.
COST: $1.00

Recipe Clipboard

These clipboards will be decorated and mod podged to hold your recipes so you can read them while you are making your recipe. You will need to bring your own paper and ribbon if you would like a specific color. We will have some paper that you can choose from if you don't have a specific color in mind. The dimensions of the clipboard are 9" by 6".
COST: $2.50

These will be costume jewelry bracelets. Great gifts for girls. The beads will vary by size and color. If you would like to learn to make one and you want to bring your own beads we will provide the clasps, wires and the tools to make them. A minimal fee will apply. If you would like to come and learn to make one using the beads that we have, that would be great also.

Wood necklace pendants

These are easy and adorable pendants. The paper has been mod podged onto the piece of wood and then liquid glass, or diamond glaze, has been put over the paper to give it dimension. We will have paper that you can choose from, however, if there is something you really like you can bring that paper. These are going to need to be made at the beginning of the day, they have to sit and dry for a few hours. You will need to purchase your own chain, leather strap or even ribbon to hang the pendant on. The big pendant is 1" by 1 1/4" and we also have 1 1/4" by 1 1/4". The small pendant is 3/4" by 3/4" (great for little girls).

Glass picture frame

This picture frame was a great gift. The frame will be different than the one pictured, it will be a black frame that you can hang on the wall. You have 3 sayings you can choose from.
1. If I knew grandkids were so much fun, I'd have had them first.
2. Be true to who you are and the family name you bear. (Then your family name.)
3.Friend-Someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

CD case mini scrapbook

10 reasons I love you- is the title of the scrapbook. You can use that title or make your own. You will have 10 - 4 by 5 inch pages to scrapbook on. We will supply the base cardstock white or off white, which ever we have at the time you make it, the cd cover and the title. We will have some limited rub-on words. You will need to bring your own paper to highlight each page and your pictures.
COST: $2.00

Homemade card packet

You will be assembling 8 different cards that will have a variety of basic sayings. You will have a choice of primary or pastel colors. All the cards will have the same designed paper arranged differently. You will not be cutting the paper, that will be done for you. The cards will come in a cute envelope. My mother loved when I gave her this pack of cards, everyone can use cards! Also, you can go home and duplicate these cards on your own.....
COST: $4.00

Wood Stackers

The photo here is just an example. The ones that we will be making will have the words "Lead Me", "Guide Me", "Walk Beside Me" on them. We have a few basic paints and will let you all know as soon as we get into the box. If there is a specific color that you would like, if you are giving them to your children, you might want to paint them a color that would match their room, then you would need to bring that paint. We will have paint brushes and the vinyl. You can choose from black or white letters.
COST: $4.00

Treasure box/purse

These cute little boxes can be made for a girl or a boy. The boy box will be decorated with paper and then the boys can put their little treasures in the box. For the girls, you can make is into a purse using ribbon and they can also store their treasures. Very cute and inexpensive. Again, you need to provide your own paper. Each box takes 1-12X12 colored cardstock and a piece of background paper. You won't use all the paper but it is better to have more than not enough. If you want to make a few, you can use different colors of cardstock for each box/purse and then pick a matching background paper to use on all the boxes/purses. If you have a paper cutter, you might want to bring it so we all don't have to use the 3 I have.
COST for BOYS BOX: $1.50

Plastic Purses

These were a big hit last Craft Saturday so we are doing them again. We are going to do it a little different where you will bring your own paper already cut and assembled. We will have a cricut there so you can personalize the purse. The dimensions for the front and back are 6x6 and the sides and the bottom are 3x6. You will also need to bring ribbon to tie it together. We will provide the lamination, the tubing and the ring clips. (You can make it bigger if you would like to hold your scriptures, cost will be a little more for more lamination. Contact me and I will let you know the dimensions.)
COST: $4.00

Christmas Ornament

These ornaments are fun for your children to help make as well. Decorated paper rolled up and then put in the clear glass ornament. You will need to bring your own paper, if you have a specific color you want to use. Using double sided decorated paper for best results.
COST: $1.00

Gift Basket

These gifts baskets are perfect for teachers and neighbors. You can fill them with goodies for the holidays. These are made from a 12x12 piece of cardstock that has been decorated with 2 pieces of colored background and texture paper. You will need to bring your own paper for this project, we will show you how to do it. (Candy is not included.)
