Arriving home from school with Christmas gifts of chocolate from her friends, my daughter decided that perhaps she did want to give gifts this year, now I had offered a few days ago to get presents but she'd decided that it wasn't needed this year. What is it with teenage girls, I'm sure I never gave gifts to school friends, we used to just do cards, these days,cards don't seem to be "cool" but presents seems to be the thing! Now, I did offer a trip to the shops,even though I'd had enough of traipsing round shops for one day,but a very undecided voice didn't know what she wanted to buy. Luckily I remembered that I'd bought a pack of cheque book sized note pads,ready for some boxing day party games, so I suggested to personalise them as gifts for her friends.
Very basic I know but with limited time and using a selection of offcuts along with my Cricut and Plantins Schoolbook cartridge,my daughter was pleased to have unique gifts to give her friends. If I'd had more time to play with I'd have added some decoration to the pens. I can't believe what a bargain these worked out to be, the books and pens worked out at around 35p a go plus it's cleared a little from my off cuts drawer.
I'm using these for the following challenges:-
Charisma Cardz 49,Last min,Christmas makes,
Samuel Taylor, Anything goes,
Cooking It Up 86, Anything goes,
The Paper Variety, Anything goes,
Anything goes,56,Anything goe's o+ optional tag (tag used)
City Crafter 87, Alter a book.
