My sister sent me Making Stuff for Christmas last year. By far the best craft in there is the notebook made from recycled record covers. I've been stocking up on funny old record sleeves for a while now and just got a few birthday presents together. I'm not really into paper crafts, but this one requires the use of needle and thread, so it was right up my tree.
The girls wanted in on the action, so we used a few of their gelatine collages as covers for a few machine sewn numbers. Stocked up on birthday presents till November!
