That's an awesome first attempt! Did you follow any particular pattern or did you just wing it?

I'm impressed that you drew them all by hand.  My 4 year old would love this!

very nice.
Is the thank you card woven? I especially like that you used different types and widths of paper. You should package up a bunch and give them for gifts!

I wouldn't have guessed wood either. I bet it's even nicer in person.
Nice job!

love 'em love 'em! love 'em!
Tell me how are the white clouds on there? Are they just glued?
Anyhoo, I'd be so happy if someone sent me one of those babies in the mail.
nice work.

I found oodles of glass beads on clearance last summer and since I don't make jewelry I decided to make these beaded bookmarks (thongs).






This is the flattest book I could find that would scan. The scanner doesn't do them justice, really!

Using thin crochet thread/yarn, I took 9 pretty long lengths of it (24 inches maybe).
Knot one end together about 4 inches from the end.
Brade the 9 strands until you have a good book length (use a standard hardcover or paperback as a guide) and knot this end.
Using watered down glue, rub each of the ends of the 9 strands and let them dry, this will stiffen it for beading.
add beads to at least 6 strands of thread, knot the ends and add a drop of glue to be safe.

I gave these as Christmas gifts last year and sold some at a fair. They package nicely in little velvet or shimmerey cloth  bags. They were a big hit, especially among my big time reader friends.

Here a few of my tiny treasures.
I had to scan them because my camera died last night
::sniff sniff::




I started making these as a more interesting way to give money gifts than just a card. Kids really like these especially when you make a bunch of them in graduated sizes and nest them together.
The ones in my photo are home to my marble magnets. They hold 3 perfectly snug. (I slide a piece of a cut aol tin inside the box base to hold them in)  For this size I started with 2 pieces of decorative paper; 1-  4 1/2 inches square for the cover and the other is 4 1/4 inch square for the inside.
The directions are here:

They are super simple to make once you get the hang of it and you can make them any size. My 9 year old daughter is addicted to making them!

I was inspired!
I whipped these girly composition book covers this morning. (the date on my camera lies) My 3 young daughters just love them.
I am in a first-time relationship with my new sewing machine so let's all pretend like my button and pockets are straight and that my stitching is fabulous. I'll get this sewing thing yet!
Anyway, I made a pattern by covering the book with a brown paper bag and using that. As for the pockets... I just slapped 'em on.



I'm not sure if they show up but I put in some of my handmade micro-beaded pens in the pockets.
