Have you seen these mini tote bags around?  I’ve noticed them at a couple of craft stores and even spied them at Dollar Tree.  The price and the petite size makes them perfect for a kids craft project!  Carrie at Making Lemonade gave her kids some little bags, some paint, and some stamps and let them go crazy, ending up with adorable results.  (Don’t have stamps on hand?  Carrie also suggests three incredibly cheap ways to make stamps.)  This would be a fantastic make-and-take project for a kids party!  [how to make stamped mini tote bags]

Project estimate:

  • Mini tote bags, $1
  • Stamps, on hand or $1 and up
