DIY | Not Too Late To Find The Perfect Gift

Leather Envelope / Two Tone Shirt / Jewelry from the hardware store

A piece of leather and a bit of glue is all it takes to make a leather envelope. You could also give your bestie the other half of your shirt. Or you could run down to the hardware store to find a jewelry gift that is actually unexpected.

If I had any skill in sewing, I'd definitely do the shirt option. It'll be a very special gift, I think.

I'm sorry, but the leather bags truly looks like an arts and crafts project. Never underestimate the importance of proper finishing.

LOVE AESTHETICS said...

I agree with you anonymous. Finishing and details are everything. DIY is something that lies very close to arts and crafts... I mean if you take it a few steps further it would turn into an actual product. Hopefully my glued envelope inspires someone with more patience and time on their hands to do a better job and use a sewing machine :)

Today I said goodbye to my first Hospice patient. She would have been 100 in December. They work hard to match up volunteers with patients, and they did a fantastic job with us. We bonded quickly and talked about everything, from how short Tom Cruise is to how worried her five-year-old self was that her
