Craft News: Ebooks into Gifts, #Crafterminds Chat

Turning Ebooks into Gifts

This week over at CraftyPod, my good friend Sister Diane is posting an fun series about turning an ebook into a cool gift.  She’s posting one idea for the next five days for turning your ebook into a tangible gift, including such awesome ideas as printing an ebook and binding it, or presenting a CD or thumb drive creatively.

Sister Diane always has fabulous articles and ideas, so I can’t wait to see what she has to share.

Go check out Part 1 now, and look for the rest of this series every day this week!

Here are the details:
