A few days ago, I invited some good friends over , and I wanted to give them something small, just for being good friends, for showing up and celebrating with me.
I bought the sweetest little pocket books at a dollar store, and stamped them with this friendship stamp, and then started drawing little portraits.
I've just started drawing very recently, so I'm not very comfortable or confident in my drawing, but this was fun! I just let myself enjoy this as an exercise:
And I was so happy with how they turned out, that I colored them in, and stuck them on my stamped pocketbooks:
I then sewed small drawstring bags to slip them into, and I was done!
Here they are, all together:
I loved working on these small gifts, and since I'm always looking for simple ideas for quick gifts, I collected some on a Pinterest board, for everyone to use. Here it is, my quick gifts board.
What about you? do you have any good ideas for small, simple and quick handmade gifts?
