Have you seen these cute crayon tote bags at Hobby Lobby? We needed a birthday gift for one of the girls' friends, so I picked one up for $2.99.
We used freezer paper to cut out the birthday girl's name on the Silhouette and dabbed some fabric paint on.
After it was dry, we added some fun twist-up crayons, coloring books, and wordsearch books from the dollar store. There you go -- a cute, personalized birthday gift for about $8. It would be really simple to dress it up further or add more things to the bag, to fit your needs.
