Wow, I haven't been here in a looong time!  Missed you guys!

Anyway, I'm participating in our local Relay For Life, and will be running a game (a quarter toss, like at the fair) at our site.  I'm desperately seeking some quick and cheap (crafted?) prizes.  (I'm buying a bunch of imprinted rubber bracelets, but need more stuff.)  I've only got a month left, and my funds are running low, but my ambition is not!

No idea is a dumb idea, but I need ideas FAST!

I like potpourrie bags. You buy some potpourrie (it's cheap) and sew some drawstring bags from a transluscent (I don't know if this is the right word) fabric, like lace or something, and fill them.

Earrings are quick to make.

Or maybe something edible like Hot Chocolate Spoons? Or maybe even Sugar Scrub (I absolutely love it.).

I'm interested in personal swaps.
For a project I'm in need of Christmas countdown inchies! If you're interested and/or want more information feel free to pm me.

What about like crocheted scarves or potholders or something? Does the Relay for Life have a color scheme? Maybe you could do something with that color scheme?

For kids, what about maybe a pouch, for treasures or whatever? I made some for my kids, it was the first thing I ever sewed, and they LOVE them!

You could also embroider little ribbon badges.

If the prizes are for kids you could do pony bead necklaces.

I love egg-carton flowers.  Cut up the individual egg cups from a washed egg carton, the foam ones work best.  Punch a hole in the bottom of each cup.  String a pipe cleaner through the hole, and decorate the egg cup to look like a flower using paint, Sharpee markers, stickers, glitter, fabric, ribbon, or whatever else your heart desires.  You can enlist people of all ages and abilities to help decorate.  The individual flowers are lovely or you can put a few in a boquet for a real creative pop!

Bottle-cap magnets are always really cool.  Put some cute and small things in the bottom of the glitter, cover in a very-clear drying glue.  Use some glue to glue a magnet on the back and you are done.

For the inside you could use print-outs, glitter, or even sequence/confetti shapes.

When in doubt, use more glue!
