Fresh Look: Embellished Wood Boxes {homemade gifts}

Embellished Wood Box via homework (9)I’m having lunch with three friends next week. I used to work with them when I used to get dressed, carry a brief case and drive to the office. We’ve all left the corporate world for one reason or another and supported each other in our various new ventures.

Celebrations: mother’s day gift box

Mother’s Day is around the corner and a homemade gift is always special. This year I’m going to make some treats and fill up this embellished box that I made.

Celebrations: father’s day coffee sampler

If dad doesn’t need another tie or tool, here’s a little gift that he may enjoy.

Assemble a coffee sampler gift box just for dad.

For this gift box, I made miniature coffee bags out of kraft paper. I glued the bottom and sides together using a glue stick. Each bag is filled with a one-pot portion of a different blend of coffee.

The tops are folded down and held together with a wire twist tie that I covered in masking tape. Now they look just like the bags of coffee you purchase at gourmet coffee houses.

I printed out fun labels for each bag; Big Daddy Kona, Manly Mocha Java, Perfect Pop Jamaican, Excellent Dad Espresso, and Father’s French Roast.

I had the perfect size box for my coffee bags and covered it in a coffee-brown pinstripe fabric.

Add a mug, coffee cozy or coffee gift card for an extra special gift. After all, dad deserves it.

Sew and Tell: no-sew felt gift box

 
I saw a cute felt gift box tutorial at Curbly and had to make one.


You simply print out the template and cut out your felt.  The gift box folds up and the tabs insert nicely into the slots.


Add a nice piece ribbon or embellishment and your gift is ready to go.


 The finished box measures approximately 3 inches square.


 
Perfect for a piece of jewelry or other small gift item.

Etceteras: halloween party part 3: mummified altoid tin

To finish off my Halloween party projects from yesterday and the day before, I covered an altoid tin with the same mummy gauze used on the invitation and goodie box.


To cover an altoid tin, you can follow the paper covered jar tutorial here. Once you’ve glued the paper to the top of the tin, add the strips of gauze and a label. Wait for the paper and gauze to completely dry and then trim the excess around the top of the tine carefully with an x-acto knife.

You can either use the altoids as another party giveaway or leave two or three tins out at the party so your guests and help themselves to “curiously strong anti zombie pills”.

Etceteras: halloween party part 2: mummy goodie box

If you liked the mummy party invitations from my Halloween party post yesterday, then you can keep the theme going with a mummy goodie box. Once all your ghoulish guests have partied the night away, let them leave with a little treat.

Fill small size kraft boxes with treats - candy corn, black licorice or my personal favorite - fun size chocolate bars. Print out a label and use the same mummy (first aid) gauze to tie a bow.

Check back tomorrow for one more mummy party project.

Etcetera: tea bag gift box

What is it about a cup of tea that’s so soothing? I’m not sure if it’s the preparation, the pretty cup or the aroma. I think it’s all of the above which is why tea makes such a nice gift.


Homemade tea bags are easy to make. You don’t even need to know how to sew. Just cut out fabric squares - you can use muslin or cheesecloth. The squares should be about 5-6 inches. Spoon the loose tea in the middle of the square, roll up and tie with baker’s twine or cotton thread.

Don’t forget to add a tag to the end of the string. You can make the tag out of anything since this part doesn’t touch the water. I’ve seen buttons and all kinds of cutouts. I went with a simple tag that includes a tea leaf image and “enjoy” in a pretty font.


You can package up the tea bags in a jar, tin or box.
I used a kraft box and added another tag to the top.

That’s it. Orange Spice Tea all ready to gift.
