Handmade Success presents their 2012 DIY Holiday Crafts and Handmade Gift Guide. In this amazing e-magazine (in .PDF format), you’ll find over 100 ideas for holiday crafts and handmade gifts from all around the web, collected into one place by Kerry, Deanna, and Jordan. I was shown this by Wren, the owner and hand-dyer at Sunrise Fiber Co. where I like to buy hand-dyed yarn. Her yarn was included as a handmade gift idea, and I’m so glad she sent it my way because it is full of wonderful ideas. Spice as a hostess gift, decorations galore, and even a few recipes (I can’t wait to try to make, like those peppermint macaroons!).
How does it work? Well you go to the site, and you can view the e-magazine in two ways. You can download the .PDF file, which is how I browse it, or you can browse it on issu (an e-magazine site – you’ll have to register there to browse it there). I’d highly recommend going the .PDF route. You can also pin it to your Pinterest board by clicking the pin it button. That way you can always come back to it later.
Once you’ve opened the e-magazine, you’ll notice that they’ve covered more than just Christmas. You’ll find ideas for Fall & Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Ornaments, Holiday Packaging, New Years, Winter, Handmade Gifts, and more. When you click on an idea, you’ll be whisked away to blog where the how-to is hosted, or the shop where you can purchase that item.
I really loved the ideas presented for Hostess gifts, decorating, and the amazing how-to’s to help make my holidays handmade. I bet you will too, check it out today!
