In August, I came across this craft on Etsy. It's a book called "How to Pray for Your Sailor." Essentially, each prayer or verse is on a 4x6 card and is laminated and spiral bound. It's made to be durable and portable. ...And it's $18.
Yes. Eighteen. Dollars.
My first thought when I saw the book? "Wow, that's super cool!" And when I saw the price? "Yeesh. I can do that myself."
And I did! And so can you!
Cost: $2ish without shipping , $4ish with First Class shipping
(Even if you have no materials at home, it won't cost you more than $5!)
- a 4x6 photo book
- colored cardstock
If you throw it in a 5x7 envelope, it should ship First Class at no more than $2. I put this in the 100 Days Box, but I have another photo book that I'm going to gussy up and send John's way... sometime in the future.
Et voila! You have a really personal, cute book and you just saved $16. That's $16 for a manicure... or 4 boxes of Oreos... or shipping for a large Priority Mail box... or... !
