I hope our projects make your day happy, too!
Here is mine:
This one was easy-peasy! I was looking for some items that I could make or buy/alter, to sell at a few upcoming craft fairs. I found an adorable but plain mini notebook in blue-and-white stripes, already made, at Michael's. (And it came with a pen!)
It was in the 90%-off bin, and its regular price was $1.00. I had a 25% off coupon, too ... so got a bunch of these for $0.07 each.
I simply cut some leaves using a new Sizzlit leaf die, embellished the leaves with three of my fabric flowers that I'd previously sprayed with homemade Glitter Mist and Stickles, and tied with a bow. Done -- five minutes and VERY inexpensive.
With pretty packaging, these could easily sell for $1 or $2 each, at a craft show, don't you think? What would you sell them for?
