By adding a little creativity of the mind and some good ol' handcrafted personalization, creating one of these inexpensive gifts for your curlfriends this holiday season will be unexpected and appreciated.
Make it in a mug.
Find a plain mug and decoupage pretty patterned papers or pictures onto it. Go online and look for quotes about beauty, curls, hair, style, etc. Keep in mind your friends’ style and curl type. Look for hints and ideas for their hair type. Type up the quotes that pertain to their style on a plain Word document. Keep them smaller in font and lay them out so 15-20 cover a page. Cut them out in strips and place them in the mug. Layer the typed sheet onto cardstock (to reinforce the slips and make them look a little prettier) then cut them out and fill the mug.
Or buy one of Keturah Ariel's coffee mugs (pictured above) if you don't feel like doing it yourself.
