Last-Minute DIY Gifts for Kids

December 19, 2012

Wish I could say I was completely done with Christmas preparations, but in my rush to check things off, I always find there is a teacher aide, or neighbor, or school bus driver that I had almost overlooked. And photobooks for family — whoops, late start on that. Procrastination is like a familiar¬†friend.

Ryan and I barely finished rounding up a few presents and stocking stuffers for the kids (Lego Hero Factory sets and a rock tumbler will be dropped off by “Santa”) and I will be working on a couple of homemade presents with the boys to gift to one another. Just in case you’d like a couple of easy projects, I shared a shrink film charm DIY over at HelloBee and wrote up a step-by-step process on making your own crayons at SheKnows.

    Question! About how many 5 minute increments did it take for you? And thank you for that handy tip regarding the velum paper! I never knew that till now, and I always wondered why my shrink plastic would turn out kind of funky! Hah-hah! X)

    Oh! Just one more quick question – would wax paper be a good equivalent to the vellum paper?
