We bought a house that needed to be decorated, so we bought a ton of wallpaper. When we were finished we had 20 rolls left. My daughter and I decided to make gift cards out of the leftovers for every holiday and birthdays. We used the following materials: a paper cutter, a one hole punch, and stamps with sayings on them.

What beautiful cards they turned out to be and we are making some extra cash on the side. This has turned out to be a full time business as well. Who would have thought? Now we have the whole family buying wallpaper for us and crafting as well, so many ideas to use the leftovers from our house.

I would love to see one of your cards made out of the wallpaper. Is it possible to send it to my email? Nikki@safelink.net

Add a little sparkle to your holidays with gift tags you can make in a jiffy. They can also be used as package tie-ons, or you can get your kids involved, let them make their own, and glue a craft stick to the back of each to make holiday puppets.

Make a tag form or use a ready-made tag in ivory color. Cut a small piece of paper that is either old or looks old the size of the tag, minus 1/8 inch all the way around.

My girls were creating little foam crafts the other day that had a loop around them. I saw them put one on an old bottle of cologne that was sitting on a shelf. I thought what a cute way to present a present of cologne.

I would like a pattern for a gift card that you fold dollar bills to look like a man's shirt. You decorate it using two-sided tape with buttons and a ribbon for a tie.
