  1. Painted Bamboo Cutlery

    Hide

    Transform reusable bamboo utensils with a few deft strokes of model paint, which can withstand hand-washing. 

    To create stripes, tape off the areas you don't want painted using painters' tape; then paint, let dry, and ring the picnic bell.

  3. Button Hair Clips

    Hide

    You'll want to fashion lots of these pretty hair clips (enough for friends -- and a few to keep). Using heavy thread, sew a button or two to the top of a colored bobby pin (for a flower, first sew button to a felt leaf). Stamp name on card stock, cut slit, and insert hairpin.

  4. Heart-Shaped Tea Bags

    Hide

    Warm someone up by adding a handwritten note to a tea bag. Cut two hearts out of red construction paper using a heart-shaped crafter's hole punch (available at crafts stores). Use a metallic pen to write a short message on one of the hearts. Next, remove a tea-bag tag and, at the end of the string, affix two hearts, back-to-back, using double-sided tape or a stapler. Package bags to give as a present, or steep one in hot water and serve.
