Artsy Holiday Card

Simple and gorgeous technique for making this wonderful card from Louise Nelson via the Aussie Scrap Source blog.  Love it!

Pocket Photo Cards

Cards st03
Also via the Aussie Scrap Source blog, this time from Sue Tonga, are these adorable pocket photo cards.  Wouldn't it be a nice gift to give a stack of them to a friend with an empty place for the photo and the friend could glue in his/her own photo?

Stamped Ribbon

This last idea isn't really a gift per se.  Though I suppose you could make a few yards of the ribbon to give as a gift to a crafty friend.  But it was too fun an idea not to include, so I had to put in on the list!  As you can guess from the title, Ez's idea is to stamp on ribbon.  She shares how to carve a stamp to decorate your ribbon, but you could certainly just use the ones you have around.
