Yay, Craftywillow!

Your holiday star books look so sweet. Great idea to use the holiday ribbon as well. Thanks for sharing your pics! Smiley

imrahill -- your books look great! I really like the newsprint cover.

I was just wondering..can I recycle cardboard boxes for the cover actually?
Or do I need to have a bit more harder cardboard?

Hi SarahPiiSan,

I usually use some sort of paperboard. A thicker posterboard works well, and so do cereal boxes. Anything thinner and the cover is a bit flimsy. Anything thicker and the "hinge" gets too bulky to open well. Don't use corrugated cardboard -- way too thick.

As far as recycling goes, along with cereal boxes, check out cracker, cookie, rice and dry soup boxes, as well as old notebook covers and notepad backs. I've even used some thick junk mail as covers!

Alternately, you could even try a thin plastic (a thin plexiglass maybe), but I'm not sure how the gluing would hold. Haven't tried it yet.

Happy crafting! Smiley

First of all, AWESOME calendar! I was *just* thinking about how I might do something like that. So cool.

Ideas:

* gift cards (book/music store)
* little outdoorsy gadgets (Nalgene bottle insert, carabiner)
* chocolates (a given)
* gift certificate for tree saplings
* "manly" soap
* felted ear warmer/head wrap

I like many of the suggested ideas as well, especially the "get out of a chore"-type coupons.

Impressive! It looks great as is. If anything, I'd suggest adding a decorative edge/binding to the neckline and sleeve ends (dark gray velvet maybe?).

Awww... I usually don't go for the knitted/crocheted animals and such (sorry, rest of the crafting world!), but this little guy is too cute to ignore. I love the fuzzy yarn-- makes him look like he's enduring a cold, dewy morning.

Thank you!

I've been wearing mine a lot lately. No funny looks, yet. Wink

Very nice! Eyes can be so tricky (mine usually end up wonky and make the subject look like they're looking in two different directions). Well done, and thanks again for the tutorial. Smiley
