Homemade Gifts for Kids

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It's another scorcher this week, climbing up to 99° F today!

I wanted to share some of the craft projects that I've been working on... I found a great Animal Mask tutorial on Bloesem Kids last week and made a couple for my friend's daughter (as part of her birthday present).

I also put together a nostalgic library kit which included a set of library pockets & cards (thanks to Ez's amazing templates on Creature Comforts), date stamp, ink pad, a book and I also designed personalized library cards (template provided below)!

Here's a template for the library membership cards, for those of you interested in creating a similar kit! Enjoy!
