DIY Gift Ideas #5

Boo!

It's been a while since I've posted something DIY/Craft related, the last time was my DIY Bordered Heart Bracelet Tutorial. So I wanted to share with you a couple of DIY gift ideas which could used for birthdays, anniversaries, decorating the house or whenever really. Everyone loves gifts, and I think it's always lovely to receive something handmade once in a while, be it a card etc. Handmade gifts don't have to be perfect at all, they're just something that has required time and effort, and something from the heart. 
DIY Gift Idea: Origami Paper Butterfly (Life as a Petite)
DIY Gift Idea: Paper Lilies (Life as a Petite)DIY Gift Idea: Paper Flowers (Life as a Petite)
DIY Gift Idea: DIY Birthday Card (Life as a Petite)DIY Gift Idea: Paper Rose (Life as a Petite)

DIY Gift Idea: Origami Rose (Life as a Petite)

So today I share with you all a bottle of paper lilies, origami butterfly, and a handmade card. These aren't unique ideas as everyone has made for example handmade cards I am sure. 

If you would like a tutorial on any of these, the lilies, the butterfly or the rose, do let me know in the comments below. If any of you are interested, I bought the jar from Sainsburys (HERE) for £3.50. You could always use a small coffee jar, wine bottle or similar. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post :) What do you think of handmade gifts? 

Have a fantastic week. Take care and speak soon!

  1. Gosh, these are amazing. Lilies are my favourite flower too. Not sure I'd be dextrous enough to repeat your success though ;)

  2. These are beautiful! I love the butterfly and the rose. I think handmade gifts are lovely, though you have to take the person you're gifting into account. I don't really like to get (or give) super decor-y gifts just because I prefer useful. I'm always on a budget so I prefer when people give (or make) me things I need, if they can.

  9. That's true, I'd much prefer something useful as well :) I think handmade cards are the best, because they aren't as likely to be chucked away so quickly, well that's what i'd like to think anyway ahah x

  15. This is such a lovely, innovative idea! I agree that sometimes a handmade gift can say so much more than your usual gift.. and often surprise people in the process! Hope your week is going well so far! :)
