I often make matching laminated gifts for children, these are a really easy and unique gift to give! The photo above shows some gifts I recently made for a friend of my youngest daughter.
I design my cards online, I currently use Picnik - but this is closing in a couple of weeks so need to find another site quick! I use this design and alter it to make a placemat which could also be a bedroom door sign. I also make a couple of matching bookmarks. I haven't shown it on the photo but you could also make some matching gift tags to go with the present and also some NO ENTRY bedroom door handle signs. Once I print them out (often on card) I then laminate all of these, except the Cards. Once laminated, I either trim them with scissors, crafting knife or a trimmer.
These gifts are great for all children , especially if you don't know what to get them - you can't really go wrong with some personalised gifts!
I have a very basic laminator machine which I have had for a couple of years now and it is very useful for placemats and bookmarks which I make quite often. Bookmarks are great for both children and adults, I make many laminated bookmarks for family members.
