DIY Mini Christmas Gifts Part 2

Over the past 3 days, I’ve been making another set of handmade Christmas gifts.

Recycled Envelopes

Inspired by this Craftster post, I created sets of recycled envelopes.

What you need:

  • An envelope
  • Calendars, fashion magazines etc – big enough to fit the net of the envelope
  • Glue + scissors
  • Black marker
  • Card stock for the notecards

DIY Mini Christmas Gifts Part 1

I’m not sure about other people, but I spent my Christmas and Boxing Day doing a lot of crafting!

My parents had a group of friends over on Monday, so I decided to make little gifts for each couple.

The little personalised magnets were made using the same method as my custom fridge magnets.

The only difference is that the images (ie. the little present or cracker image) are cut out from an old Christmas card and then stuck on over the contact. I just stuck it on using sticky tape rolled over.

The denim notebooks and notepads I did not make. They were charity merchandise which I decided to add the custom magnets too. Otherwise the custom magnets would have seemed too small by themselves.

More craftiness coming soon!

Merry Christmas with DIY cards!

Ok, so these photos aren’t from this Christmas, but from 2007. I can’t believe that these photos are from so long ago! They seem like 2009… but shocker – 2007.

I took some scraps from wrapping paper and crackers…

And created Christmas cards which I used the following year!

Basically I found some white cardboard (of the right size) and arranged the scraps in a ‘creative’ way. Then I went about gluing and taping (the larger items) onto the cover.

This year (2010) I’ll be working on DIY cards with the bf, SM. So we’ll see what we come up with. All I can say at this point is that it involves… lino!
