Homemade Gifts

WARNING: If you are a family member, you are strongly advised NOT to read the rest of this post.

We are not the craftiest bunch of people, but I was inspired to make some homemade gifts for family this year. 

First was a set of notecards featuring some of my favorite photos from our garden this year. I simply used double sided tape to attach these said photos to card stock. 

I got some invitation size envelopes from the local office supply store and wrapped them in a pretty ribbon.

Then the girls and set out to use up some of our perler beads and created some homemade frame ornaments.

I printed out a couple favorite photos of the little ladies and VOILA! - photo frame ornaments. 

Our attempts certainly won't win any awards, but I'm sure (hopefully) the grandparents will appreciate them.

What have you been making this month?

  1. Ooh so pretty! The notecards are etsy items for sure! Compassion fundraiser?! ;)

    Have you all ever used Crayola's air dry clay? When you wrote about ornaments that made me think of the clay. I was going to do handprints this year but I'm done and didn't want to add to the mix. I love the colorful frames they made for the tree, so pretty!
