  1. Paper Liners

    Hide

    Here's a quick and easy way to brighten your work space: Measure the dimensions of a clear, straight-sided drinking glass, and cut a piece of card stock to the vessel's height and circumference. Next, cut a piece of decorative paper to the same height as the glass and 1 inch longer than its circumference. Center the card stock on the back of the decorative paper; fold excess paper over the edges of the card stock, and secure with double-sided tape. Line the glass with paper, and fill with supplies.

  2. 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.

    Send Halloween party invitations adorned with a familiar grin. 

    Print the pumpkin template and cut out. Trace template onto orange card stock; cut out. Form eyes, nose, and mouth from rickrack, and affix with craft glue. Glue a length of green rickrack to the back for the stem. Then glue pumpkin to the front of a plain card, and inscribe a spooky -- or sweet -- message for your guests.
