Truth be told...after his 1st bday gift (wooden alphabet block set)...I felt like I couldn't just 'buy' him any random thing. Making gifts just feels so much better. That's just IMO. And don't get me wrong, I've bought my fair share of gifts, and I love receiving store bought items...but sometimes, an occasion just calls for 'hand made'...with lotsa love of course!
So I started the 'memory game' by purchasing 12 wooden circles from Michael's ($.29/ea!), then found a boy-ish patterned piece of scrapbook paper I had in my stash...dug thru the internet for cute car/plane/train/etc. clip art...printed those & cut them out, then spray painted the circles white.
Finally - I enlisted the help of my dear friend, Mr. Mod Podge:
|super easy - great gift to quickly create!|
|An entertaining 'toy' that doesn't take up a ton of space!|
Then with the same fabric I made him 2 velcro snack bags...one large & one small - LOVE how these turned out!
