Arrow Wallet (DIY)

I absolutely love making these little felt wallets: they're cute, simple, and just big enough to hold a few vital cards (originally made for a post inspired by the book Phantom Tollbooth).  Maybe because of Valentines day, or because I just watched The Three Musketeers last night, I was really into embellishing them with arrows. The heads and tails of these arrows are actually little metallic iron-on heart shaped studs from My Next Style.

Gummy Fruit Tray (DIY)

Here's what I'm bringing on Super Bowl Sunday: a gummy fruit tray.  That's right: I'll be the classiest, most health conscious guest there, or at least I'll be the funniest.  Its a quick inexpensive treat to throw together, and I doubt anyone else will happen to show up with the same dish.

Monogram Keychain (DIY)

We all have that one special friend that loses everything - everything - from her purse to her keys to her phone.  She is loved, buuuuut......this gets old.  I present to you the ideal handmade gift for said friend: a neon monogram keychain that glows in the dark.  Not only is it cute, but this is about as practical as a DIY project can get.
