Dollar Store Gift Project

dollar tree gift project for under 5.00$
an easy way to pretty up those boring legal pads
the gals in the office use everyday

supplies needed: double stick tape, ruler, scissors
all other items are available at the dollar store

they also have the matching pens in 3 packs

I also embelished the purse size notebooks with letters
You can add anything you like to make them more personal, the neat part is that you can make 3 sweet little gifts for under 5.00 dollars

blessings ...

The dollar store has some great stuff! If y'all haven't looked lately, you should definitely give it a second look.

Great idea! The dollar store and Big Lots are my favorite places to find fun little things! I will have to remember this idea the next time I see some really cute file folders! Thanks Kate!
P.S. Thanks for the comment on my "thankfulness" was very sweet!

Hi Kate,
Love this idea and it's something maybe even I could do.
I love your beautiful livingroom. I love how the white just jumps from the walls. Beautiful! You have beautiful vignette all over the place.

Hello Kate~~I've just strolled into your blog for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. You've got a beautifully inviting spot.
We share similar taste for so many of the same design elements.

The one thing that could cheer me up as I watch fall come to a close was... the anticipation of Winter and all the Christmas Festivities that come with it.
Providing creative inspiration.

I've bookmarked you in my favs.
I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,

P.S. I forgot to mention...I grew up in OC Cal. My whole family resides there. I'm now living in the Pacific Northwest.

Sweet Wishes,
