If you need some 'make them smile' low dollar gifts for guild exchanges, mini-groups, or just a friend who enjoys sewing now is the time to start on this idea. Keep a shoe box behind your sewing machine and every time you use up or break or decide to fling some little sewing notion or quilty bit throw it in the box rather than the trash. In a short time you will have a great selection of items. Include some of the trimmings from the cutting table and Shazam, you have the ingredients for a great gift.
Divide the bits into smallish jars, (or a gallon jar if you are only making one and go for a really big smile!) tie on a couple of selvage edges for ribbons and then all you need is the gift card. These two jars are pint sized.
Print up what you'd like to say on paper, fuse it to an appropriate fabric scrap, trim and you have a unique and lovely Scrap Buster gift card. This card says...
Enclosed: One Heirloom Quilt
Some assembly required
