Gift Boxes for Your Favorite Crafters
No matter the occasion, putting together gift boxes for your favorite crafters can be a great time. Not only do you get to spend hours in the craft store, browsing through all of the items for sale, but you get to see the excitement on the faces of the people that you love. If you’ve got a crafty friend on your gift-giving list, here are five great ideas that you can use:
We all have a friend or two that love to document important life events in a scrapbook. For the scrapbooker on your list, put together a gift box full of colorful papers, fun stamps and beautiful ephemera that they can add to their pages. Remember to keep your friend’s personality in mind when picking out items; these things will be used by your friend so make sure that you choose papers and items that suit their personality.
Don’t you find it amazing that someone can sit down at a sewing machine can create something wonderful? If you’ve got a sewer on your list, put together a box filled with threads, bobbins, needles and beautiful fabrics. If you know that your friend has been absolutely dying to make a particular project, buy the pieces they’ll need and create a project-in-a-box.
The art of crochet is back and more popular than ever. If you know someone who is new to the craft, why not fill a box with funky new yarns that they can create masterpieces with? Buy a set of special crochet hooks or a book filled with amazing patterns for your friend. Not only will they appreciate the gift, but they may be so pleased that they make you a gift in return.
People who draw and paint are truly amazing. These artists can take a blank piece of paper and bring it to life with a few strokes of a brush. If you’ve got a painter in your life, fill a box with special brushes, a set of paints they’ve always wanted to try and special paper. If you aren’t quite sure what to buy, a gift card added to the box will ensure that they can grab the supplies that they need.
Candle making is a hobby that many people enjoy. If you know a person that can make candles better than any bought in a store, put a few supplies in a box for the holidays. You can buy wax, scents, wax dyes, wicks and even candle holders for your loved one. There’s no doubt that they’ll turn the supplies inside the gift box into wonderfully scented works of art.
If you like to craft, putting together a gift box for your fellow crafters can be incredibly exciting. When putting gift boxes together, remember to keep your loved one’s personality in mind; after all, they’ll be the ones working with the materials that you give them. Most of all, have fun with it! Gift boxes can be a joy to put together when you’ve got a theme to work with.
