    Thank you, Donna...good luck with the book safe. Trying to keep the edges
    straight is a bit tricky, but I found a sharp pair of nail scissors worked
    just fine to fix any pages that weren't quite in line!

    Here's a few popular and inexpensive bath time gifts, and I'm going to add
    Christmas gift tags to the bath oil, and make Christmas sachets for the
    Oatmeal Milk Bath Sachet project (I adore this stuff, makes me feel like
    Cleopatra when I'm having a bath, because she was supposed to bathe in
    milk!)

    http://www.allfreecrafts.com/homemade_bath_oil.htm (basically baby oil, a
    recycled jar, and potpourri)

    The Milk Bath recipe follows the link, but you can print individual bath
    sized sachet packets from this page, and I'll be adding Christmas sachets,
    hopefully later today:
    http://www.allfreecrafts.com/milk_bath_sachets.htm
    Oatmeal Milk Bath Recipe
    1 cup of cornstarch
    2 cups skim milk powder
    1/2 cup baking soda (increase this amount if your water is hard)
    1/2 cup oatmeal
    Mix all ingredients in a blender until the consistency of fine powder. Add
    two or three tablespoons to your bath to soothe your soul and soften your
    skin.

    Cut pretty flowers from paper napkins to decoupage a matching jar and shaker
    box, and fill the jar with the above Milk Bath recipe if you like:
    http://www.allfreecrafts.com/decoupa...bath-set.shtml

    This is a nice homemade gift for kids to make:
    http://www.allfreecrafts.com/bathsalts.htm

    Use paint markers, or permanent ink markers, to pretty up a pillbox:

    Think that's it for now!

    Hi, Bernie,

    You make the Book Safe by hollowing out a hard cover book with an exacto knife,
    and lining it with non-fraying fabric. It is a new free craft project that I
    have posted on my site, and my kids are bugging me to make more...here's the
    link:

    It is a book with a space inside cut out for valuables or "treasures"
    that you can "hide" in plain sight on any bookshelf.
    There are also cans made to look like campbell's soup, or coffee
    cans. Back in Hitler's time there were many ingenious ways to hide
    things in pain sight or in hidden furniture compartments.
    It is the same theory as the rock that sits by your door and hides
    your spare house key.

    Somewhere around here I have a campbell's tomato soup can with a
    screw off bottom. It is weighted to feel full. My MIL had it in her
    pantry until just recently. I will prolly use it as a place to store
    extra food money I save as my food budgetng gets better. (Just don't
    tell DH I have been buying cheaper and surprise him with a sizable
    savings account all of a sudden.) LOL

    Jane, Great Craft Idea... I think kids would love this as a gift
    also. My children are forever hiding "treasures" in places, socks
    drawers, etc. I know my 5 year old would LOVE to be able to hide his
    money from his older brother in a special "safe" just for him.

    This is a wonderfully frugal gift idea.

    Hi, all,

    I apologize for being a dimwit in advance. I've started tuning in to these
    posts on book safes too late. They sound wonderful. Could some kind soul
    pass along the directions again?

    thanks so much!!
