Mini Fabric Bag 3.  Snappy Mini Fabric Bag {Tutorial} ~ This little mini pouch is perfect for gift cards, treats, or holding the basics like a debit card and ID.  The secret for getting it to “snap” closed?  Strips of a metal tape measure sewn inside – genius!  Fun for party favors too. Pencil Roll 4.  10 Minute Pencil Roll {Kids Gifts}A quick little project that makes a great gift and can be whipped up at short notice with materials from your stash. Only basic sewing skills required, so this is a great beginner project.

Your personalized gift will surely be treasured for years to come. Holiday Magnets 7.  DIY Holiday Magnets ~ Cut the circles out or simply use a circle punch. Adhere a jumbo flat back clear marble {purchased from JoAnn’s} on top, a super strong magnet on the back and that’s it.  A perfect teacher gift! Monogrammed Hand Soap 8.  Monogrammed Hand Soap/Sanitizer ~ These monogrammed soap bottles are a fabulous gift.  People love to receive something that has been personalized – it tells them that you care.

S'more Kit

9.  DIY S'more Kit {recipe how-to} ~ To celebrate the occasion I put together these little S’mores kits for everyone. There’s something about fall weather, a cabin and a fireplace that just scream S’mores. Besides, who doesn’t love Graham Crackers, chocolate and marshmallows?

Sourdough Starter

10.  Sourdough Starter {free printable tag} ~ This 3 ingredient sourdough starter is perfect for making waffles or other delicious breakfast foods.  The recipe will make two sourdough starters that store well in mason jars.  Keep one for yourself and give one away.  Print the free tag to embellish the jar and keep track of the month and year it was started.
