DIY Gift Ideas

Hello my dear readers! For sharing some new DIY ideas and inspiration with you, I wanted to show you the handmade gifts I gave away last Christmas.

Most of them are projects you can easily do yourself. Come and join the fun! :)

DIY Gift Ideas - Surprise everyone with those fun projects:

When you have access to a lasercutter, you are a lucky one. I made illustrations of old cameras, digitalized them and cut them out with a lasercutter.

Apart from the cameras, I also played with other motifs like fruits or geometrical house shapes and turned them into brooches, earrings and key chains.

Next, I did another wood project: I turned pieces of wood into geometrical necklaces.

Absolutely one of my fave DIY projects so far, because it involves color, different materials and different creative techniques and the result is oh so pretty!

To surprise all of my friends, I embellished a whole bunch of plain notebooks with my handletterings.

Most of the letterings were totally fitting the person they were gifted to.

Yippie yay, all those fonts and styles!

My boyfriend got something extra special: since I bought him a spot in a sushi class for Christmas, I also sewed this sushi-shaped pillow for him.

And because I am so much into handlettering, I made several embroidery hoops with motivating letterings to give them to some lovely people.

Yay, thanks for following around my creative adventures! :)
What was the last handmade gift you created?
Happy day

Easter and Springtime Handlettering Freebie

Hello everyone! Hooray, time for a new free printable! My dear close friends Susi and Rudi of the vegan and vegetarian food blog Brokkoli Bastards have asked me for an Easter contribution for their blog and this is what I came up with:

Similar to the Easter handlettering printables from two years ago, I made a new version of an Easter lettering printable with a fresh look and with new motifs and wordings.
The letterings have already been published on the Brokkoli Bastards food blog and you can use them for plant decor as well as as cake topper or gift tag.

Free Easter and Springtime Handlettering Printable:

Hooray, here's the final printable for you:
Your free download:

Print the sheet out and cut out all of the elements. Either glue a wooden stick to their back or use them as gift tags for your Easter presents. :)
Can't wait to see your photos with the letterings you printed out, so exciting!

Make sure to check out Susi's and Rudi's Brokkoli Bastards blog and have a look at all their delicious recipes! Since we are close friends, I often had the pleasure to eat their kitchen creations and for the long Easter weekend, you could for example try out their chocolate cherry cake (Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte), their vegan carrot cake or their bunny crumpet. Hmmm, so so good!

Happy week and happy holidays!
