When I first saw this gown I thought how pretty, then when I realized it was made from Golden Books, Wow! Thanks for sharing My Owl Barn. And if making a gown out of books isn’t quite what you are looking for, how about a bunting made from the pages. This was found at childhood 101 (and thanks to Crafty Crow)
Woman’s Day came up with a great idea to keep track of the books you have read. I will get a favorite author and then forget which of their books I have read, this would help. The bookmarks are made with fun foam, but cardstock works great too. I made mine with a flower on top.
Here is a tutorial from Stamping With Di for making a very pretty gift bag. She gives great instructions with pictures!
I just came across this blog, Craftfail. Very cute, I will admit to having been there more times than I would like. So don’t worry, not everything turns out the way we plan. Sometimes that can even be a good thing. I am left-right challenged and I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I ended up with buttonholes on the wrong side. Oh well it is still wearable. Chalk it up as a life lesson.
One Pearl Button has come up with a way to make your own vinyl stickers. A roll of clear contact paper and some crafty ideas and you are on your way. Kids will have fun with this one.
