Homemade Christmas my kids

I am looking for some great gifts that my kids can buy MAKE for their friends, siblings, cousins, etc for Christmas this year.  I was flipping through my favorite magazine...Disney's Family FUN.  I came across the idea of a "Gift Making Party."  I think its a great idea and now I am on the hunt for some great projects that we can do.   Some of the ideas that they had were:

Personalized Notebooks
Terrific Trivets
Stenciled Dish Towels
Fleece-Weave Scarves

I also think that Oriental Trading Company will have some cute crafts.

I have been thinking of projects too.  Here are some of the ideas that I have thought of for the gift making party.

Hair bows (lots of videos on youtube) Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, (some ideas...Here) and the curly one is called "corker" ribbon.

Soda Can Hair bows like THIS.  My friend Brooke did a great tutorial!
My 10 Year journal tutorial
My Book Sling project
