A crocheted cell phone carrier.

Crocheted Cell Phone CarrierI chose cotton yarn for this cell phone carrier because it is easily washed. If it's for someone who won't get it dirty, you could make it with one of the fun yarns that are on the market now.

 

Cabinet with Unfinished EndThis is another idea to save money when installing new cabinets. If your cabinets do not end in a corner, you need some kind of "cap" to finish them off. I cut a piece of masonite to fit, and then glued can labels that I saved ahead of time....just whatever I used in the kitchen such as beans, tuna, peaches, etc. Thin down some white glue and spread it on the masonite board to cover. A damp sponge works well for this project.
