I need some cheap and easy to make craft ideas for our church yard sales. Can you help?

Plastic bag holders made from bandannas. Take a bandanna, sew along one side, make pockets at the top and bottom for 1/4 inch elastic, attach a loop at the top for hanging. Bandannas are less than 3 bucks a piece and the time to make it is minimal. This will hold literally hundreds of plastic grocery bags to be inserted at the top and pulled out from the bottom while it's hanging like a dispenser.
a sewing kit
1 small craft box
glue buttons to design on top of box
wrap measuring tape around box for trim...
cheap and some people are always looking for a needle and thread,
Use old washrags or buy a package of cheapie new ones. Sew two together for a potholder or three together for a hot pad to set hot dishes or pans on.
Make stationery using your computer and printer. You can make quarter fold note cards with pictures you have taken (of local landmarks etc. not people!) on the front and "Hello from Yourtown" inside. Package in a ziplock with 8 folded cards (from regular copier paper) and 8 envelopes (get envelopes in large boxes at office supply stores). Sell for $2.00 or so.
