The perfect handmade children’s gift

Traveling Art Studio

I don’t know why women are so instantly drawn to beautiful stationary and paper gifts, I have to contain myself each time I enter a shop or book store where journals are sold. Perhaps that is part of the reason I am so drawn to this fantastic idea posted at JCasa Handmade. I found the post a few days ago but find myself going back to it again and again. I truly believe these are the perfect gifts. For children, for parents, and if modified a bit for adults, for myself 🙂

Children's coloring wallets

The link to this tutorial is a bit different than our other posts, you’ll have to buy it from the seller’s etsy store. The bargain is the seller doesn’t care how many you create, give, or sell. So if you wanted to you could go into your own traveling art studio business. How fun would that be?

Purchase the tutorial here

Looks like it’s time to start compiling the Christmas Gift list, look back soon for tons more holiday gift idea posts …

Something a little different

Owl Tote Bag

So when I stumbled across this super crafty owl tote bag, I just knew it had to be shared with Kids Stuff World readers. In fact, this may just be the item we were looking for to round up all the goodies we have planned for our first giveaway. On an entirely separate note, Ellen from The Long Thread fashioned this bag to hold goodies for little ones on Halloween. This bag would no doubt be perfect for trick or treating but we see so many other uses for this terrific project too. Take a look at the original post here, and find the link to the instructions here. If you choose to make your very own Scrappy Owl Tote bag shoot as a photo, we’d love to see how it turns out.

Hoots Paper Owl Toy

Hoots - Paper Owl Toy

Check out Hoots The Owl by Enamor

Sticking with our owl theme, we thought we would pass on this super cute DIY paper owl toy. This adorable owl can be yours in just 10 minutes! Use some thicker paper and you’ve got a permanent piece on your hands. I envision myself experimenting with fun prints and creating different animals. Who knows maybe we can start a Kids Stuff World Paper animal collection. If you’ve got a 3D paper animal you’d like to share with us, email us at
Little Beary Li Hoots
If you’ve made you own hoots, like Little Beary Li send a pic to Enamor, she’d love to see them all.

We’ll be the first to admit, we have not mastered the fine art of knitting. Sill, I find myself perusing magazines, catalogs, and websites drooling over the patterns. I would have to say knitting is in my future and once it is, this gorgeous Rainbow Throw is mine, all mine! We hope you enjoy this post as much as we did. For what it’s worth, the throw was rated as an Easy project. If you try this one out, we’d love to see the results. Post them in a comment here or email them to us at
