I've been wanting to make a friend of mine something, but can't think of anything.

We've been friends for around 5 or 6 years and she lives in Mississippi. The reason I want to make her something is because I got her a DVD and I've been waiting to mail it because just mailing the DVD is kind of a waste when I have room in the package for something else! She's a very dear friend and I just love her. She's also a crafter but she doesn't sew, she does a lot of paper crafts. She does a lot of baking/cooking as well. I was thinking about making her some kind of "cook book" but I just don't know how to go along with doing that.

Any thing is help! Smiley


I've got a crush on you, my sweetie pie

Why don't you just collect alot of recipes from magazines or the internet and make some nice sort of recipe file to put them in? You could decorate it nicely and organise all the recipes properly so that they're in order. Is she interested in travel or geography at all? If so you could then collect alot of recipes from different countries and organise it that way - so its like a recipe book and a geography lesson  Grin

What a sweetie you are! 

My suggestions are recipe cards, which you can decorate with stickers, stamps, ribbons, anything you like. 

Fridge magnets - specifically cupcakes.  Because they're wonderful.  You could make them out of salt dough, fimo or sculpy, even plaster or paris in moulds, then paint and varnish them and glue a magnet on the back. 

You could make or decorate a plain recipe book (so she can fill it in) with the Friendship Recipe on the first page - it goes like this:

Combine together heaps of laughter and love
Then respect your friends' wishes
With the understanding of God above
Take the heat from your thoughts
And cool with memories of good times brought.
Mix well the happy and sad times we share
And most of all, blend with kind and forgiving words
Just to let them know that you care.
Bake for a lifetime and store close by.
Add a pinch of humor if you desire.

There are other 'Friendship recipes' floating around if that one's a little too fluffy for you. 

Happy crafting Smiley

How about a beaded cake tester?

Thank you for all of the great ideas! I can't pick ONE so I think I might make her a few things.

Thanks again!

oh! what movie is it?
 you could look and see what they eat in the movie( if it applies) and then send recipes for those foods. Smiley

there is a book called 500 cupcakes. You could do something like that...except a smaller number.
