Buy a book for pennies or use one that you already have, and create a secret compartment….
It is a fun, and useful craftie, made for pennies! I invite you to my home blog, my first blog, Grandma Mary Martha, where I share pictures and narrative of just how my daughter made this thoughtful and fun gift for her very special and intellectual friend.

And for even more fun, how about a thoughtful gift like this:
My daughter made this for Valentine’s presents for her special girlfriends. (Her boyfriend gets something different. See what she made him for their one year anniversary, of going steady- DIY Christmas Gift Idea for Pennies)
For this sweet crafty gift she wrote scriptures on paper per color/topic. Then she cut the scripture and folded them and inserted them into a jar, which she decorated with paint on the lid, and ribbon.
She made a color coded index, and WA-LA, fabulous sweet gift for any occasion really.
Be a friend first. Love first, then share your source of love and light: JESUS.
Now, hey, you might think that you don’t have time for such activities as the above shared gift ideas, but my opinion is that it is a great thing to keep in your pocket, for when you need to keep the kids busy. Arts and crafts are great for the brain, and can benefit the pocket-book as well by providing cheap and fun entertainment, and special gifts to give!
