Default itching to craft something

I have a bit more time on my hands and i am itching to do something, i was pretty crafty before Christmas trying to do presents and stuff but now i don't know what to do and i need something to do.

I am going to make cards this year for birthdays but i need something else to do, oh and it can't cost a lot because i am poor.

so what is something that i can do that would be fun and not clutter my house, well the basement of my in laws house.

so what suggestions do you have for me?

There are too many ideas on pinterest. I think now you can just get on and look without having an account.

I really want to try http://papercutting.blogspot.com/

You need paper, an exacto knife and a self-healing cutting mat.

OK, I'm 3 months too late, but just in case...

How about doing something for Festival of Trees? No clutter in your house, every penny goes to Primary Children's Hospital and no guilt!

The snowmen would be perfect for it. My pinterest board has more ideas: http://www.pinterest.com/yungmom/fes...gift-boutique/

And, if you would like, I would even come and pick them up from you and take them there for you (I'm on the executive board) so you don't have to worry about them sitting there for awhile. Just PM me.
