Birthday Gifts & Another Giveaway

My best friend's daughter turned two last week, so I made her a few presents:

A reusable Sticker book. I used{THIS} tutorial from {Samster Mommy}. It was really easy to make; in fact, I need to make my kiddos one too! The only thing I did different was the ribbon binding. Instead of using thin ribbon around each page I used my glue gun and a wide-ribbon (1 1/2 or wider) to fold it over to do two at once.

I also made her some felt bracelets:
I got the idea {HERE}, but didn't follow the tutorial at all. I wanted to make the bracelets more durable (they are for a toddler after all), so I doubled up the felt and used snaps instead. I also used a little bit of Heat 'n Bond to attach ribbon as well. I finished each off with a simple {blanket stitch}. When she grows out of them, she (or her mommy) can use them as bookmarks!

Finally, one of my FAVORITE craft blogs is giving away my soon-to-be FAVORITE tool--- the Silhouette, check out the giveaway {HERE} or just enjoy Somewhat Simple {HERE}.
