Love the idea of these "Memory Files" by Heidi Swapp. For those who homeschool, they are very similar to "Lap Books," only prettier! (Do a Google search and you'll find lots of templates.) See Heidi's web show about them here. One photo at left.
This is a neat wreath project using vintage recipe cards, by Just Something I Made.
Here is a how-to on making fabric peony flowers by Creature Comforts. So pretty!
Look at these beautiful paper cones by Jing van Opstal for Rhonna Designs here. One photo at right as well.
