Cheap and cheerful creative gifts

Sometimes, when people come to a Crafty Hippy class they end up going home with presents, as my urge to create, and provide inspiration, takes over.

Stampin' Up! creative handmade gifts

Here is a little gift that the ladies at my last class received!! A really cute little jar that can be re-used that was full of lovely sweets.

But guess what???

Amazingly, this present cost less than £1.70 to make.... and looks absolutely gorgeous.

This is one really good example of how crafting can turn simple everyday items (for example this jam jar) into wonderful, handmade personal presents, that will be adored by the person receiving the gift.

For this gift I used some Pumkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon, some matching Pumpkin Pie cardstock, Basic Black ink, and the Googly Ghouls stamp set, the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set for the "Thank You", - and I finishes the gift off with some Googly Eyes.
