Make a geode ring by gluing a geode onto the surface of a ring blank. For a bottle stopper, glue the geode onto the top of a wine cork.

Fabric paint and tape turn flats into cap-toed shoes with a cat face on each toe. After taping the boundary of the toe-cap area and around that part of the sole to protect the shoe from paint leaks, paint the main color of the cat on the toe. Remove the tape and add triangle ears. Use a bobby pin tip to make dots for eyes. Stroke on whiskers and make the nose with a small-tip paintbrush.

For each animal bookend, glue a plastic animal onto a piece of sanded scrap wood, paint on primer, then spray-paint it in a high-gloss color.

To make a calendar, glue photos the recipient will treasure onto posterboard squares; glue calendar pages on the backs. Punch two holes into each square for rings, then put the calendar squares on the rings.
