handmade Christmas gift ideas

since Christmas is quickly approaching, i am working on finishing up everyone's Christmas gifts. i make gifts for all of my family {10 people, besides me} and some of my friends. this year, i started knitting back in september. i think it's my best year yet for planning ahead. even with planning it all out, i still have a few people to craft for. here are a few projects that look like great last-minute gifts; i hope they help you, too!

Gift Tags made from Christmas cards

Christmas tags from old Christmas cards.

DIY: mini notebook from cereal box

i have actually made one of these, and it took hardly any time at all!

handmade envelopes + doilies+ {decorated} clothespins + baker's twine = a cute "inspiration" wire where one can place their letters in!

maybe i could put little letters in each envelope...

the perfect bookmark
