Other than that, all you need is, of course, wrapping paper, scissors and tape.Shredder Select

I love it! When I was younger, I'd always try to find the most unique wrapping paper possible for wrapping gifts for my girlfriends, and then I'd hand-make custom cards ... but for some reason, I never thought to actually making the gift wrapping myself as well. I'm going to take this idea over the top come next occasion : )

Post image for 12 Last-Minute Gifts You Can Make

Every year, without fail, I find myself scrambling for gifts at the last minute.  It doesn’t matter how early I start my holiday shopping, it just always seems to come down to the wire.  My go-to for those last-minute gifts is always something handmade — you can never go wrong with something that was made with love and a special personal touch.  Throughout the past year we’ve done a number of DIY projects, and here I’ve rounded up some of our favorites that would make excellent holiday gifts.  Read More

Post image for Handmade Flower Holiday Cards

Is there anything more beautiful than that which occurs in nature? I truly think not. I’m always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate nature into my life, whether decorating my home, adorning my body, and everything in between. I recently came across a way to make prints from fresh flower petals (similar to these hammered leaf prints), and I love the idea of incorporating them into a homemade holiday card this season, as well as creating a card by attaching fresh flowers themselves!Read More

Hammered flower prints is such a great idea! We used it at our event, and the guests were very happy! See the pictures here:

Tea is a beautiful way to add to the atmosphere, and today I’m sharing a simple way to package homemade tea for the holidays: in test tubes!Read More -Oct 07, 2014, 8:55PM
Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
Raspberry (Fiver's Adventures) -Dec 01, 2013, 10:41PM
This is so creative, such a cute packaging idea! For holiday gifts, I would probably fill the test tubes with hot chocolate mix, too!

Post image for DIY Test Tube Potpourri Holder

There’s something about test tubes that I’ve always loved. Maybe it’s their clean, simple shape; maybe it’s their natural cork tops; maybe it’s just the hidden science-lover in me… I finally got my hands on some, and wanted to come up with a unique way to use them. Read More

Libbie -Nov 08, 2015, 8:14PM
Love the rustic simplicity - thanks for the inspiration!
rgunter -Apr 22, 2014, 5:07PM
saw something similar to this awhile back and have been wanting to do it myself. I finally will and will be using it (like the original product i saw) as a clever way to store daily vitamins for the week. though i'll be adding alterations to this design to make it mountable on the wall

Tiwtter: @irissom Gonna try these myself sometime :)
tessa -Aug 08, 2014, 1:38PM
these are beautiful! I made them for my mom on Mothers Day and she absolutely LOVED them the only problem was that after a few days the color of the flowers started changing colors and now the stunning purple of the lavender has become a yellow color, so I'm going to try to make them again today and see if I can improve the result.
