I have a 10 year old, very mature great niece who has started scrapbooking. Can you suggest some good gifts, something all scrapbookers need or wish they had. thank you

How about a paper cutter, scissors, embellishments, scrapbook, stickers, etc. Just go to any craft store and the ideas will come to you, BELIEVE ME!

RE: gift idea

I think the paper cutter is a great idea. Just make sure you get one that you can measure, not just a "cropper. I just stopped at a Dollar Tree (the dollar store where everything is $1) and they had a big variety of stuff. Also check out Hobby Lobby when they have 1/2 price sales on stickers or paper. The paper packs they have with a variety of colors would be great. If she already has the basics of cutter, paper, scissors, etc., then get her some punches; decorative corner punches would be good if she is actually scapbooking pictures. Maybe she has a pet she would like to make a scrapbook of--there are lots of stickers for that. You will have fun shopping for her and might just get hooked yourself if you haven't been doing it.

RE: gift idea

If you have a "Michaels" Craft store in your area, watch when they have their paper packs 1/2 off. They are cheaper there than at Hobby Lobby, other wise Hobby Lobby is the place to get 95% of scrapbooking products. Once she has a good straight edge cutter, embellishments are the best.

RE: gift idea

How about a gift certificate to Michael's or Hobby Lobby and then take her to those stores to shop with her? Fun!

RE: gift idea

Don't know if you sew, but how about a really neat tote bag to cart it all along in? One made out of an old pair of jeans would probably be a big hit. It's cool that she's into scrapbooking at a young age. Let us know what all you decided to get her. Keep up the inspirations!
