You can find almost anything on Pinterest…it’s true. Upon wasting my time searching the other day, I found a fantastic tutorial on upcycling diaper boxes. Hmmm…what could I do with this? Oh, yes – toys scattered all about our living room floor: check, a desire to get said toys put away when not in use: check, cute fabric laying there staring at me: check!
Apparently, while my mom was pregnant with me, she took a part-time job at Nordstrom (or was it JC Penney?) wrapping gifts for the holiday season. I don't know if this story is true, or if I pieced together stories to make it to be true. Either way, it's a great story to tell. Ang Alamat kung bakit mahilig akong mag-wrap ng regalo. My mom loves to wrap gifts.
Pillow boxes are perfect for so many occasions, whether you are giving a gift, or looking for a fun way to package a party or wedding favor. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make your own... in whatever color or paper you choose. There are so many fun possibilities. I made small pillow boxes... perfect for cash, candy, jewelry, etc... but a little bit too small for a gift card.
Hi welcome to the tutorial for my Jigsaw Giftbox. Each box measures 2"x2"x2" and is stackable. If you are interested in the inspiration for this box or to see more pictures, check out this post . Tutorial : Start with this template for the box.
If you've got paint chips sitting around begging to be made into something, try folding them into boxes for paperclips, thumbtacks, party favor candies, or tiny gifts. I made these from Behr swatches, available at Home Depot. You'll need paint swatches, double-stick tape, an X-acto knife, ruler, and cutting mat. For the box bottom, cut a 1/2" strip off each of the two rounded ends of the swatch. You should be left with a 5" x 5" square.
This holiday season, I took a lot of pictures...probably too many. Now that my pictures are developed, I wanted to make a cute photo sleeve to put the pictures in. It makes for nice presentation when I give them away, and keeps them safe from finger prints. For this project, I used American Crafts pattern paper, Bazzill card stock, Lawn Fawn stamps , Scor tape, and ribbon...I also used a Cameo to cut out the shapes.
Make a Folded Felt Gift Box » Curbly | DIY Design Community « Keywords: Christmas, Holiday, gift-box, feltCurbly-Original So a few months ago I spotted these DARLING felt, flatpack breadbaskets from Teroforma , and I thought, "Dude, you can totally make that." My idea, however, was not a breadbasket, but a little gift basket. So I grabbed paper and pencil and came up with plan. First, the supplies: one 8" x 11" piece of heavy felt from the craft store, NOT the flimsy kind a scissors craft knife and cutting mat, optional but helpful doo-dads to decorate the box a pencil a PDF template, which you can find on my Scribd page
We have a fantastic stationer in Amherst called Hastings and my favorite part of the store is where they stock the office supplies. They seem to have all of the genuine, plain jane, almost old fashioned type stuff — air mail envelopes and manila envelopes, and craft paper envelopes you can buy individually. You know what I mean.
Because sometimes you just need a small gift bag... I needed to wrap a t-shirt that I made as a gift. So, I made a gift bag using wrapping paper, freezer paper, tape and ribbon. It was easy to make and cute.
Benjamin and Lyla both love to color, but right now all they do is scribble. I have stacks of sheets that Benjamin has colored all over and I was hoping to do something fun with them. I saw this tutorial at Smile Monsters for making your own paper gift bows and I immediately wanted to turn the scribbles into bows. These are such a great idea for wrapping presents (especially for the grandparents).
