Oh My!  Craftsters are amazing.  I can't believe how incredible these entries are.  Here's my little offering. 

I went for quantity, trying to squeeze as much out of my $10 as possible.  But then I got tired, so there are a couple of things I didn't even start using. 

I purchased 10 seed packets, some funny bird things, a package of scrapbooking paper, a photo album, a notebook, two pens, two placemats ($.50/per),  two placemats($1/per), and a skein of fuzzy yarn.  I didn't end up using any of the yarn.  I also used a bit of fabric from my stash in old odd pieces for lining bits. 

I made a bag/basket (bagsket?) for my trunk to keep things nice and tidy.  It has two pockets on one side for little things, and two pencil pockets on the other side for the cute bird pens (just floral taped the birdies onto the pens) and the tire gauge. 

Inside the bag is a cardboard box for stability.  It's covered with paper for prettiness. Inside the box are three wallets.  Long wallet http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40505.0 "easy-peasy wallet" http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=187229.0and a little coin pursey thing made out of a laminated seed packet.  I have never made any wallets or used snaps or interfacing before, so it was fun to try all of that out.  Thanks for the great tutorials! 

I also covered the photo album and the notebook with the scrapbook paper to make them prettier and match the bag, and I made a little pouch to keep an extra diaper and wipes case in. 

With the rest of the seed packets, I made a holder for bits of paper, because don't you always need bits of paper to write things down on?  I cut up the rest of the scrapbook paper into a handy size and slid them into two of the seed packets.  The bits of paper left over from that cut I wrote the alphabet on and laminated, to make something fun for my daughter to look at (and learn with?) in the car.  I punched holes in the rest of the packets and put them together onto a key ring with other goodies inside; stickers, crayons, etc. 

Thanks for wading through all of this with me.  I had a good time and learned a lot.  Happy Crafting!
