I am a giver. I love giving gifts to friends and family. When I have the time and the motivation, I like to put some thought into celebrating the recipient and make hand made gifts. I think it adds a nice personal touch.
Some gifts I’ve made previously include scarves, baby quilts, cards, photo books, personalized bags, cookies and cakes. This time, I decided to try and make a crayon roll for a sweet little girl. A one year old may be too young for crayons yet, but we all know how time flies! She’ll be an artist in no time!
I bought a few fabric squares and ribbon at JoAnn’s, picked up some twistable crayons at the grocery store, looked at some inspiration on pinterest, and got started.
To add to the gift, I bought a little drawing pad from target. I thought this would be a great gift for both baby girl and her mom! Mom can simply throw the drawing pad and crayon roll into her purse or diaper bag…portable entertainment!
I really love how this hand made gift turned out! I can’t wait to make one for my 4 year old!
Do you make hand made gifts? Got any good ideas? I would love to know!
*edited to add this birthday card I made to include with this cute gift:
(paper is dear lizzy, & the cork accent is maggie holmes)
Happy tuesday y’all!
