The hardest part is only making one.
 

1. Marbled paper

Cut shapes from a variety of papers to make an interchangeable work of art.
 

2. Fabric trim

Snip a piece of your favorite mirrored trim to create a deceptively simple yet intricate piece of jewelry.
 

3. Book page

Keep a favorite passage, poem or love letter close to your heart.
 

4. Pressed flowers

Add a favorite flower or press a few from a special bouquet.
 

5. Concert tickets

Pay homage to your favorite band or the best festival of the summer by saving a piece of your concert ticket.
 

6. Vintage photographs

Can’t bring yourself to cut the actual photo? Make a copy to keep the original intact.
 

7. Map

Remember the trip of a lifetime, your home state, or a favorite hike. Tip: Draw a heart around a special point of interest.
 

8. Indigo fabric
