This summer when our office went to Maumee Bay there was an art show. I met this lady, Michelle Kepford, who makes recycled crafts. I bought some great journal/notebooks from her. I also bought a purse made out of a book. I bought two journals that I gave to my nephews that were made from McDonalds containers. They are cute little books that they can draw in at church and they Velcro shut. I also got one for my niece that is made from a Cheerio box.
Another fun one I purchased- it is made from a coffee filter container. I have contacted Michelle to see if she can make some for me from Tea boxes. What fun little hostess gifts these will make, or stocking stuffers. And she said yes!!! I am soooo excited. I have been saving tea boxes and I am hoping I can send her the tea boxes and she can make me journals. She was selling these journals for a variety of prices.. When I have my tea shop, I want to sell this journals!!!!
I think it will be great fun to give a gift of tea and a journal!
