Ok, so I was totally inspired by Ladybug Blessings to do a completely handmade gift. I had a ton of fun doing it and there was no waist. That was all cool, but the best part was, on the way to the party, C said, "Mommy, this is the best present we've ever given somebody."
So, here is what I did...
There is some fake makeup inspired by Playing House. No toxic chemicals on any kids face with this and it was super easy to make. My 5 year old did one of them.
The little unicorn thing is what I call "Art on the go." I have seen many different versions of these things, but this is my version. It has vinyl in it for a chalk board, chalk, crayons, a pencil and paper.
Then I made a little dance skirt. My little model wasn't into modeling today.
Last was this little Hobo Sac. Yes, it was made from the tutorial by Made.
I used the Hobo Sac as the gift bag to hold the present.
I don't have a picture of it, but the only part that was not Homemade was the card that actually wasn't a card at all. I always buy a book and use that as the card. I just tape a little index card to it with the happy birthday message to it. That way, a card isn't just tossed out in the trash to fill up the land fills.
Well, I hope you are inspired as I was to give homemade. It's quite a lot of fun.
