We love to make things at our house, and this week we got to put together a bunch of gifts for teachers and friends from our homeschool co-op. For our teachers we gave dish towels that I embroidered and wrapped each one around a bag of homemade microwave caramel popcorn.
W. made her girlfriends decorated hair clips. She made Shrinky Dinks and we glued them onto dollar store clips with some E-6000 glue, which seemed to hold very well. We clipped them to some cute printable gift cards from here: http://wildolive.blogspot.com/2011/11/print-christmas-gift-tags.html We have a great Shrinky Dink jewelry book from Klutz Press that has many fun patterns to copy. You can buy Shrinky Dink plastic sheets at most craft stores. Follow directions for coloring and cooking.
