Beyond Scrapbooking & Card Making

I love to scrapbook and make cards, but when it comes to birthdays and the holidays I am always looking for fun project ideas that I can make for gifts. Two of my best friends’ birthdays are this month so I have been looking for ideas then low and behold I found some great ideas right under my nose, in the Class in A Box Personal Shopper Kits!

The first project I did was a Felt Dahlia Broach that was shown in the March 2011 kit. This broach is so easy to make and look at the gorgeous results! It’s pretty simple really, it just takes some cutting and a little time. The kit comes with all the patterns you will need for the 3 petal sizes. You will need a hot glue gun to create each petal and then all you have to do is arrange them on the circle base (also a pattern in the kit).

The next project I did was the Book Journal from the April 2011 kit. This is for my friend who is an avid reader and loves to collect books. I love going to her house because it’s like visiting a library, and I get a book review with each book I borrow! This book journal is round but the idea can be easily adapted to create a square or rectangular journal too. In the kit you’ll get all the art and papers you see here, which makes this so easy to put together!
