book paper packages sewn up with string - My New Favorite Thing!

I have a thing for book pages.  Wreaths, Christmas Tree Cones, ornaments all made with printed paper!  Here's a fun idea using them for adorable and affordable gifting!


Less of a sweet tooth?
Filled with bath salts!

I have a bird "thing" plus I'm a writer so these bath salt holders are calling my name. The fun part is that this could be used year round for little gifties of thoughtfulness.
