$27 or less: Christmas gift ideas

(Prices quoted below are RETAIL price--you'll pay less with discounted publishing points!!  Projects are just a few of the many examples.)

Want an EASY Christmas gift?  Simply use a pre-designed template.  All the creative elements are already there.  Swap out the pictures and text for your own!

COST:  21-page wirebound book... $25 ($18.75 or less with Club HM)

Make a cookbook

or a personalized yearly planner

COST:  12x12 scrapbook page suitable for framing...  $4 ($3 or less with Club HM)
(Even with a frame, this would cost about $10-$15 total.)

COST:  8.5x11 calendar...  $30  ($22.50 or less with Club HM)

Two-year calendar

One-year calendar

Any of these projects can be done in no time.  Deadline for Christmas gift-giving is Dec. 2.  If you need to then turn around and mail the gift, I suggest ordering around Thanksgiving.
