HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE - CUTE & QUIRKY.

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE - CUTE & QUIRKY.

I've got the 2nd of my Holiday gift guides to share with you today. This time I've gone for all things cute and quirky. When you're shopping for the person that seems to have everything sometimes you need to think outside of the box and bring a little of the weird and wonderful to your gift giving. My favourites are the pink llama desk duster and the heated s'more slippers. How about you?

DIY ORIGAMI BOXES.

DIY ORIGAMI BOXES // Click through for video tutorial

Do you remember these origami boxes? They're one of my most popular diy's and still my number 1 go-to when I need a last minute gift box. It's been 2 years since I first made them so I thought it was about time I updated them with some snazzy new summery paper and a video tutorial.

To make the base of your box you need to cut your paper ½ inch smaller. So if your lid was made using a piece of paper measuring 10 x 10 inches, the base should be made with a piece of paper measuring 9½ x 9½ inches.

The inside of the boxes should sit flat but if you have any problems you can always secure it with a little glue or maybe hold it in place with some cute stickers.

And if video tutorials aren’t your thing you can find the original photo tutorial here.

I'm thinking about remaking some more of my popular diy's with video tutorials. I know I still get a lot of emails and comments about my stamped clay bowls so I'll be putting that at the top of the list. If you've got any favourites or something you'd like to see in more detail please let me know in the comments below and I'll see what I can do.
