Hey everyone! It’s Sandra here today. Are you looking for some DIY Christmas gift inspiration? If yes, you are going to love this post. Handmade gifts are the best presents because they come from the heart and you cannot buy them from a shop. My gift ideas for you today are:
- handmade resin paper-clip holder + gift bag for paper clips
- cute stationery set including a handmade notebook decorated with a tassel embellishment and a flair + a lovely Xmas button
- resin key-chain holder
The Color Pour Resin collection is perfect to create unique presents. The collection comes with a variety of decorations including flakes, glitter sets, and molds. I used two molds for today’s inspiration: the hand dish and the ring holder mold.
The first project is a resin hand that holds paper-clips in style. To make the resin hand, I used a couple of things from the Color Pour Resin collection. It’s fun to create projects with resin because you can add glitter, colors, and small embellishments. Just the perfect way to create handmade Christmas gifts. But now back to the first DIY project! This present comes with a handmade gift bag that holds paper-clips. I decorated the vellum gift bag with embellishments from the Hey, Santa collection by Crate Paper. In addition, I added some patterned paper at the top of the bag – doesn’t it look as if you bought it from a DIY shop? What do you think?
Tip: To make the vellum bag, use a sheet of vellum, fold it to make a pocket, and sew along the edges with a sewing machine.
The second gift idea is a cute stationery set which includes a handmade notebook (made with The Cinch) and a cute Xmas flair button (made with the Button Press by We R Memory Keepers). I decorated the front of the notebook with a tassel from the Hey, Santa collection by Crate Paper, a flair button, and a cute charm that says ‘Very merry Christmas’.
The third project is a resin key-chain holder, also made with the Color Pour Resin collection. Originally, it is intended to hold rings. However, I thought that using it for key-chains is a great alternative! By the way, did you know that you can make key-chains yourself with the Button Press? The collection also has a key-chain set, which makes it easy to create pretty presents.
Tip: The Color Pour Resin collection includes fun accessoires like gold glitter stars and mini lights too. It’s so easy to play around and create unique gifts.
