Holiday gifts for under $3

We made this apron for the triplet's Great Grandmother. It says "Gigi's Taste Testers"

I wanted to get the triplets involved in a craft project that I could personalize and give to the grandparents and great grandparents for holiday gifts. Well, I had been eyeing this inkjet paper iron transfer stuff. I was actually impressed on how well it work. A few different companies make this stuff, I was able to get it for less than $1 a sheet. Follow direction enclosed. I was able to print a picture and title on each sheet. There is also some free software that has additional graphics available.Next came the hard part. Getting the triplets hand prints. I bought 3 different color fabric paints less that $1 each. Also, I bought various tote bag ands aprons. The tote bags came to about a dollar each and the aprons $2. I know Joann carries these as well. So each day I choose a different child and got their hand print. Each night letting the paint dry between toddlers. If your kids are more cooperative you could just go ahead and get all the hand prints on the same day :)

Lastly, iron on the picture of your cuties, peel of the back and you are good to go.
