A friend and I have the task of planning a craft project for women to do at an upcoming retreat held by our local church. The limitations: relatively quick, cheap, doesn't rely on electrical outlets or long glue drying time, doesn't take up much space, doesn't require any special expertise, and I guess, isn't Satanic. Got any ideas? Have you tried any projects in a group?
Here's the leading contender: Paper booklets with a pocket. I revised the template from this post at Curbly to be easier on your printer and have a curved pocket. You can download the revised template, print it at 100% on 8.5" x 11" cardstock, cut it out, and trace it onto fancy thick paper. Watch this video from Paper Design to see how to assemble the booklet.
I used cardstock for the cover, 3 sheets of 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper (cut in half to make 6 sheets for the interior), and colored embroidery thread for tying.
(Thank you to Curbly and Paper Design for the help!)
