Unique gifts for lover and more: Paperboard Mystery Message

Recycling ideas

I am thrilled to announce that I am guest blogging over at Whip up today!  Kathreen has an absolutely lovely site filled with all sorts of crafty goodies and fun things to explore. I am honored to be included among her guest bloggers.  She also just started producing these great mini-mags chock to the brim with all sorts of entertaining kids activities and crafts.  Check the latest one out here!

So, here is a little peek at what you can make following the tutorial posted there.  This special word puzzle was originally made for a sweet, strong, little boy in my life who has cancer.  I designed this “get well” gift to have a meaningful message, be easy to do while sitting in bed and have the flexibility to play with over and over.  

Original purpose aside, I think ANY kiddo loves to decode a secret message.  What a fun birthday gift!  Or, gift to give as a visiting friend.  The added benefit is that the letters can be used for word building long after the original message is solved.
