HANDMADE ENVELOPES CONTAINING A CUSTOMIZED TREASURE:  This fun book page fabric envelope was made by coating the front and back of the newsprint (or book page) using silicone sealant!!  Amazing – Check out the details on the Design Sponge Blog – Imagine filling this envelope with precious photographs of kids and grandkids for grandma and grandpa; personalized note or postcards for the teenagers on your list; coupons for “lunch on me” or “four hours of free babysitting” for your friends; or even a few crisp dollar bills for the kids on your list to have some cash of their own to spend on the after holiday sales!  We think these are terrific!! 

You can also make holiday gifts by adapting these do-it-yourself ideas we’ve blogged about in the past:   snow globes, tiered trays, custom glassware, nuts and bolts organizers, button picture frames, or even practical gift baskets!   We have lots more ideas … check out our long list of DIY and Crafts postings, scroll down on the right hand side at our Super Glue Corporation blog home, to get yourself thinking … we know you can do it! 

Oh, and if you come up with a new, clever, handmade gift idea and you make it using one of our many products let us know and you may win some free samples!! 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours from all of us at Super Glue Corporation and Pacer Technology!!

We have a fabulous Valentine’s gift idea for ALL of the loved ones in your life – your spouse, boyfriend, parents, kids, neighbors, teachers, colleagues or anyone!!  It has all of the necessary ingredients: It’s homemade with love, and everyone you might want to give a Valentine to will be impressed by both your thoughtfulness, and your tasty gift!  This idea takes TIME not MONEY to create!

All you need is a yummy recipe for cookies or bars – our example is lemon bars, but choose your own specialty.  Here’s all you need to do:

– Make the lemon bars, cookies, pies or cake.

– Purchase a special plate (paper,plastic or glass) from your local dollar store or 99 cents only store.

– Wrap your homemade treats up with cellophane and tie a special ribbon around the top and then attach a handmade recipe card to your gift.  Check out the super creative video below to see how to make your recipe card POP using scrapbooking embellishments and Front Porch Treasures (R) foam tape, dots and squares (currently available at 99 cents only stores)!
