Good Things Utah Pin of the Week... Handmade Christmas Gifts with Printables!


I LOVE neighbor and friend gift ideas!  And dang, there are SO many on Pinterest, I had a hard time deciding what to feature.  Today, I am going to show 5 different pins that I thought were the most clever!

“CHAPPY” CHRISTMAS
This pin can be found here:   

Items Needed:
Chapstick
Tag (on my blog)
Ribbon

Directions:
Download my tag or make your own! Cut two holes in your card and tie your chapstick to the back with a ribbon. I backed it with some fun Christmas paper but that is optional.

COOKIE DOUGH GIFT

Items Needed:
Fun Container for your dough (I got mine at Michaels)
Labels (on my blog)

Make Cookie Dough and put it in your container (put it in a plastic bag first)
Download my printable.  Here is a copy of the front and back:
Attach the cute tags on the front!  I like to print mine on label paper!
REINDEER ROOT BEER
This pin can be found here:  

Items Needed:
Rootbeer in glass bottles
red pom poms
googly eyes
brown pipe cleaners
tag

Directions:
Attach the eyes, nose and antlers to the root beer, download and print the tag and give this fun gift to your friends!
For the antlers, you will want to just wrap one full pipe cleaner around the top of the bottle.
Cut a 2” piece of pipe cleaner and wrap it around the top!
