Turn a kids drawing into a cute little card. This is what we do for cards lately. I hand Kalla a rectangle piece of card stock and have her draw a picture and name (she still can't quite spell 'Happy Birthday' all by herself, so I write it out on a scrap piece of paper for her to copy). Once she's done I cut another piece of card stock or other printed scrap book paper slightly larger and tape the picture on top with double sided tape (how I love the invention of double sided tape...remember the days of using regular tape and looping it???).
For the party we went to this past weekend, we decided to make a cute little pencil pouch. A super easy method in this tutorial here. The cute dog came from a print at our local Hancocks. They had fabrics with these adorable weiner dogs all over as well as a cat and bird one. I bought 1/4 yard of each a few weeks ago thinking I would cut the pictures out for applique. Kalla picked the dog for our pouch.
Bare Books and crayons and some scratch n sniff stickers, cutsie erasers and gel pens...in other words we shopped my craft room (since this is the type of stuff I hoard keep on hand for gifts).
