Home-made

I’m a big fan of recycling and home-made gifts. There is a wealth of great blogs and websites run by amazing creative people, every other Wednesday, I’ll be posting a new project, sometimes my own ideas, sometimes other people’s idea.

As a general guideline, start collecting:

buttons

a sewing kit

cardboard packaging

ice cream pots with round lids

super glue or a glue gun: glue guns are fairly inexpensive now, I bought mine for about £10 from John Lewis

scraps of colourful and decorative paper: packaging and used gift wrap are the best things to keep

scraps of material

Pritt glue stick

masking tape, sellotape, and double-sided sticky tape

paint: acrylic works best, cheap sets can be bought from big supermarkets like Tesco or all craft and art suppliers

ARCHIVES:
