We can all appreciate new homemade gift ideas! Here are some I made at Christmas time for my friends.
This box was made by cutting out mat board and wrapping it around a small plastic box purchased at a craft store. To affix the mat to the box I used a glue gun. Once all sides are on, I secured it again with a band of metal and wire.
I drilled 2 holes in the top in order to fasten both mat and decorations to it.
The bead was fashioned from oven baked clay.
This box was made for a lady who Loves PINK. It shows you how your imagination is the limit on what you can create. I fastened a "BLINGY" button on the front which I purchased at a fabric store.
Thin ribbon is also used to add contrast and charm.
This box was created for a person that loves Dragonflies. Attached to the top wires are several Dragonfly charms which I purchased at a bead shop.
Again the main bead on top was fashioned from oven baked clay I picked up at a craft store.
I used magenta metal to add some zing as well as two different kinds of thin ribbon.
