Craft Roundup: Small Changes for Big DIY Differences

It's the little things that make a big difference sometimes, isn't it? Whether it's a small note tucked inside your child's lunch reminding her how much you love her or a handmade gift from your son on Mother's Day, small, heartfelt gifts often mean the most to us. This week's roundup is all about small changes you can make to everyday craft supplies that result in a great goody you'll love to give.
