A Few Fun Crafts

So this weekend was action packed. We had Induction for my sorority Friday night into Saturday morning then Saturday Josh and I went to the Carolina football game, hit up the way-too-packed mall, and went bowling with some great friends, all the while I'm running on 3 hours of sleep from the night before! Then today I went to church with my family.

Here are a few gifts I gave to my Littles for Induction, these things are incredibly easy to make and won't break the bank. So cute to do for birthday or Christmas gifts.
This little bag was SO easy to make and such a hit with the girls, everyone loved them! All I did was buy a vinyl bag (I got one of the sturdier ones so that it would really hold up) and then I found these Greek letters at Wal-Mart, they had almost every letter you can imagine and I super glued them to the front of the bag; it turned out so cute! Would be such a good idea to give for a birthday gift, put the initials of someone on the outside and fill it with goodies! (also great for sororities, obviously :) )

I made this cork board for each girl as well. You can buy small cork boards in packs at Wal-Mart for about 6 bucks, I painted their names on each one, put ribbon around it, cut a fake flower and stuck it in the side, so easy and so cute!

I also painted this canvas for each girl, each one got a different color. I put our signature Bible verse of our sorority on it and the big yellow flower at the bottom is a wooden cut out that I got from Hobby Lobby. I also got the flowered ribbon at Hobby Lobby. This is a great idea for a gift; paint a name, Bible verse, favorite saying etc. to give to a friend!

I hope this inspires you for the Christmas season, these kinds of things would be great for Secret Santas because usually you have a small budget and these projects are incredibly cheap and easy to do! I really enjoy hand-made gifts that seem to have a lot of thought behind them.

And here's a pic of Josh and I from the game Saturday, I really enjoy getting to go out and do fun things that him and I both enjoy, hope everyone had a beautiful weekend!
