Welcome to the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We’ve gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can “hop” from one blog to another to check them all out.
Today’s project is from Ellen of The Buckle Boutique’s Design Team.
I’ve turned to my favorite bling products from The Buckle Boutique to make some gift containers that will be stuffed with homemade candies and cookies for special gifts this year. Here’s one such container I’ve made for the upcoming season:
To make this pretty gift container, I used a My Creations™ Kraft Container from Close To My Heart, and The Buckle Boutique’s Dazzling Diamonds adhesive rhinestone sheets in clear and red. Though it’s just as pretty plain, I topped the red rhinestone with Sparkle Flourishes also from Close To My Heart. Then I tied the whole package in some red organza ribbon from my stash, held on with a rhinestone ribbon slide by The Buckle Boutique as well.
Here are pictures of the products I used:
Next, make accurate measurements of your container and its lid. Measure to the opening lid, without including the inch or so that is tucked into the lid to secure it closed.
Using the measurements you determined on your container, measure the same height on your Dazzling Diamonds adhesive rhinestone sheets — silver (clear) for the bottom and red for the lid, like so:
No special tools are needed to cut The Buckle Boutique’s Dazzling Diamonds!
Affix the sheet to the container, wrapping it around and pressing it firmly to the container. Trim off the excess after the edge meets/abuts.
Embellish it as you desire. Here, I used adhesive flourish gems from Close To My Heart.
Tah-dah, you’re done! Tie a ribbon around it, top it with a ribbon / buckle slide and your gift is glorious and beautiful, thanks to The Buckle Boutique.
