Here is a project I used mine for this week. It is a recipe book for my (55 year old) mother. Her kitchen theme is Hello Kitty, so I just went with it. Normally I wouldn't do things so cutesy - but I am trying not to let my personal taste get in the way of a gift idea. I swear - if there is something that a 13 year old girl would like - my mother would love it... Anyway - I placed the holes at the top instead of the side so that it could stand freely while she is cooking... I used the "From the Kitchen" set from Stampin' Up! - it worked out really well for this project...
I also grabbed a matching pen when I grabbed the sticker set for this project. I was going to attach it with a long ribbon but I think I will leave it free so that she can use it whenever she wants to...
More gifts on my to do list - so stay tuned :-)
