I haven't post in a long while, but I went on an Alternative Service Break (ASB for short : ) to volunteer in Chile for three weeks through my university this winter, and I ended up loving my 14 teammates. I wanted to give them keepsakes so they could remember how great it was together and have a little souvenir for themselves, if you could call it one? I had trouble deciding what medium to use and what they should look like, but I remember at one point I was going to go with colored pencils. I'm so glad I found construction paper!
The front

I ended up getting them laminated because I glued the paper together and it wasn't sticking that well. It was pretty pricey considering I had 14 of them, but I love how they look! My friend commented that they would make suitable placemats and I have to agree.

(sorry, living in a dorm affords you little quality picture-taking places)

I wrote little notes on the back for each of them

The stars were the most difficult for me, because I had to find a star cutout hole punch that was big enough, but the only one was this beautiful, elaborate Martha Stewart magnet punch that cost me about half of my crafting budget for the month (given my college status) but now it gives me an excuse to find star crafts!

Enjoy my simple crafting, I hope you're inspired ; )
