Dollar Store crafts gift set

Here's another cheapo project from items bought at a dollar store! It was made for a craft exchange among a local group. I made my giftee a "Book lovers" gift set.

I bought a journal for recording books read, opinions, reflections, quotes, interesting facts, stuff that you like getting from books and might want to go back and remember. I also added in a bookmark made from a glasses string and some beads. ($3 total)

I also purchased pieces of scrapbook paper to make book plates. I used my Cricut and SCAL software to cut the shape and the bird silhouette. Then I hand stamped "The Library Of _________ " on each, and placed double-sided scrapbook tape squares on the back. ($2 total including scrapbook tape)

And finally I made paper clip markers to mark pages of good quotes, questions, topics of discussion, etc, to make easy reference when in book club or whenever.
