Pretty Post-it Gift | Office Gifts | Handmade Holidays This year I am beyond thrilled to introduce you to a revamped series here at LWSL called Handmade Holidays! In past years I have shared my own holiday gift ideas, but this year I thought it would be fun to get some inspiration elsewhere. I asked eight of my favorite up-and-coming bloggers to share a simple and frugal handmade gift idea. I was so blown away by all the amazing ideas they came up with, and I think you will be too. Each Monday, from now until Christmas, one of these talented women will be sharing their gift idea. Please be sure to welcome them here to LWSL, and to take the time to check out their blogs. This is a guest post from Kalyn Brooke of Creative Savings Last minute gifts are a necessity. As much as we can prep and plan to our hearts content, there’s always at least one person we’ve forgotten on our list. Most of the supplies are probably in your craft drawer right now! Here is what you need: Step 1: Trim card stock to an 8″ x 3-1/8″ rectangle

Reversible Coffee Cup Sleeves I’m gonna tell you right now, you can’t throw a rock and not hit a tutorial for a coffee cup sleeve out there on the web. Reversible, not reversible, buttons, Velcro, skinny, wide, you name it. For that matter, you can probably work a pattern out yourself. However, just in case your rock lands here, I’m going to share my version with you. I’ve made a few of these for Christmas and birthday gifts. I was trying to decide which fabrics to use for a new one and my wandering eyes landed on my seasonal fabric stack. To make one, you’ll need this coffee cup sleeve pattern . Cut one from cotton batting, two from ironing board cover fabric and two from cotton fabric. I happen to have scraps of batting and ironing board fabric, but if you don’t and will be buying the supplies, another product you can use is InsulBrite. You’ll only need half of the hair tie, so zigzag stitch through the center, about 3/8” long, then clip through the center. Next, cotton fabric, face up. Last, the batting. Lay flat.
