  • Stitch the shape of a flower and fill in with water color.
  • Make a bird out of vintage print. 
  • Use chalk board paper and write a message with chalk.
  • Make a collage and cut out words from a magazine or book with the sentiments you wish to express.
  • Make a paper doll that represents the character of the recipient.
  • Cut passages out of old books.
