Today was craft day with my neighbors granddaughter a tradition for us.

So we went an bought these cute little spiral journals from the dollar store, some scrapbooking paper, some stones we had for another project and fake flower, also glitter glue from other projects.


I think all together we probably spent $3.00 total on both...excluding mod podge and hot glue but for a quick craft they turned out fairly well,,and she was thrilled about it.

Those are great! I can't believe you guys even cut into the paper to fit it between the spirals. Wasn't that a huge pain?  Grin

So very cute!  what a great project.  Thanks for sharing your experience.  I didn't even think of the "spiral" delima.

What a great idea! And even better that you made them with a young friend! I love to teach kids about crafting!

Very cute and very nice of you to give the gift of craftiness to a young gal! Smiley
Goes to show you don't have to spend a fortune on a present or even on craft supplies to create an adorable gift!

They turned out great.  I especially love the fact this little girl will have some pretty cool memories, that you take the time to spend with a little friend.  What a wonderful place the world would be we all had someone cool to show us neat stuff like crafting.  I firmly believe crafts can help with self esteem, resourcefullness (ever see a crafty person stumped--never!), a can-do attitude and some of the people here have stated that crafts had seen them through some rough times.  What a gift!
Good for you!
And please post anyother stuff you two make!
