Gift bags made from newspaper?Nah I don't care about making the gift bag but you might and that is cool. I will buy some colored bags, but I like the doily idea on top. Cute treat bags or holiday gift bags.
On the theme of decorated notebooks. what about a travel journal to give to a travel-loving friend? (something to write notes in, glue in maps before hand, etc) or a prayer/hope/wish journal, recipe (Diy Photo Art)
Loads of ideas for crafts and room decor made with paint chips. One idea looks familiar.the mini-notebook idea was shared at the March 2010 Youth Forum Spring Workshop. Look out Lowe's and Home Depot, were taking your paint chips!
this would be a cute idea for some homemade stationary for the missionary to use along with some envelopes and stamps.a heart cut out from the area s/he is serving in.not sure about the text though in the front.
