First, I think bookmarks are always a good idea. I’ve had to time recently to toodle around on the internet, and I found several pages about making bookmarks from old greeting cards. It is so simple, basically cutting out the shape you want, then punching a hole through it and running a piece of ribbon or yarn through the hole to make the tassel. You can make them more durable by laminating them, if you feel so inclined. I think this is a great way to use up my stash of saved greeting cards, especially ones with unique designs.
Second, I think I will give Daughter a deck of playing cards with this set of instructions in it. We have a car now, so she spends a lot of time in the back seat alone, and we will be doing a lot of travel as well. I consider the purchase of a pack of cards an investment in peace. = )
Thirdly, I will raid my button stash, since Daughter has started taking an interest in sewing. She likes using buttons for eyes and decorations, so I think I can throw in any of the odd buttons that I have floating around in my sewing basket.
Finally, I will also make bags of candies and bundles of tea to pop into stockings, but I think it will fill things out nicely.
