Welcome to the first post in my new Handmade Gift Guide series: Gifts to Make and Keep on Hand. These are items that are great to make in bulk, keep on hand for last minute gifts, or use as stocking stuffers.
For the next few weeks I'll have daily Gift Guide posts full of gifts you can make yourself. We'll have gift guides for men, teachers, crafters, pets, babies, teens, and more! Enjoy!
*Make a rhinestone frame,
*Or a gilded potpourri box with BHG.
*Craft a business card case with Blueprint.
*Martha shows us how to make velevet ribbon belts,
*And cinnamon candles. Each of these would be a great last minute gift to keep on hand.
*Craft a bunch of vintage jewelry magnets,
*Or vintage floral cab necklaces for friends and family with directions from One Pretty Thing.
*Design Sponge shows us how to make stamped dishtowels.
*Cathie Filian has directions to make these vibrant batik silk scarves.
