I like the soda bottle idea!

I bought a bunch of the popcorn holders from Target when they had them in the dollar spot and then put them on sale. For quick gifts I can stuff them with theater candy a bag of microwave popcorn, etc and sometimes a movie theater gift card.

I remember your soda bottle idea from last year, Kelli, but I can't remember how you made them. Did you post the instructions somewhere?

Here is a photo-related gift that is small - Photo Cubes! They are just the unfinished wooden blocks you get at Michael's for $.99 with photos decoupaged on. I've done them as puzzles, and as individual photos. There are many ways you can use this idea.

I think these Bottle Cap magnets are cute. Supplies are relatively cheap. You can probably get about 50 caps/$5.00 and the letters at Wal-mart for a few bucks.

Also if it's for a teacher you could make this with a ruler instead of a whole yard stick. Paint &/or embellies would make it even cuter Photo/Card holder

Are you interested in that type of stuff or more edible type gifts?

I have a friend who did something cute last year.

She bought a 4 or 6 pack of vanilla creme IBC soda - bottles are clear. She took scrap paper and decoupaged all over the cardboard 4 or 6 pack. Then filled the bottle with M&Ms, jelly beans or other such small items. Then put culy ribbon around each and put cap back on. It was really cute.

Kelly...I did this just recently - it is a stationary set that includes a journal, a beaded pen, notepad, post it notes, jumbo paper clip book mark and 8 blank note cards. You could do it all or you could just pick and choose the items that suit you.



Then I packaged it all together in shrink wrap so it would stay in place in the "set"



All of the items are very inexpensive to come by and easy to alter. If you're interested, let me know and I can post instructions or links to instructions.
