Kids enjoy these wallets, easy fast and fun to make and create, you can use magazine pages, use up those old maps and atlas's, or even use a kids coloring page. laminate if you like, more durable and last longer, add some stickers, beads to enhance it. and you get a fun friendly wallet. I was introduced this craft by a family friend, and she told me to do a google search on them because I just couldn't understand how she made them. and after seeing different difficult ways to make them, the more she taught me this,the more I got the hang of it, and now my kids have several and make them and give them to their friends. they even make great ATC holders.they hold 4 in each pocket.
this is our latest for our travel trip were planning on going soon. they have even traded other wallets made from other materials as well. but youhave to love the wallets made from any kind of paper. even scrapbook paper.You can find instructions for these and other wallets on Youtube, different people give nice instructions on how to make these. Have fun!!!!!!
Home made dog toy used from scraps of blanket fleece. use a dog bone pattern or make your own pattern. you can find one online9 I found one and enlarged it) you can also use a cookie cutter , place your template onto a cute animal print fabric/fleece trace and cut out and put together by hand sewing edges or use a sewing machine. turn inside out and stuff and seal your toy up and your done. this is what the end result. easy fast and fun to do in a few seconds.

One easy way to start your planting and an easy cheap way is to use parfait cups with lids, cleaned out really well. this is one I did in a few minutes for my daughter. she loves to plant flowers outside, so I decided to give her a little starter cup to start her own in the house. I love McDonald's parfait's and this is what I used the cup for.
fill cup with soil, add your seeds, add scrapbook ribbon wrapping to outside, use a cordinatingflower petal for the cent and glue on. use the cup lid for your flower starter base. use these for home decor, give as gifts. easy and fun. and it's recycled things you might already have around your home.
