How to Make a Gift Container

This die (gift carton) is so versatile and reminds me of a small milk carton. The die from Maker's Movement cuts and scores all in one pass. I plan to put candy inside for Easter but a small gift would be nice as well. The gift carton can function as unique gift wrapping and a box all in one. The gift carton die has two pieces, the carton, and the tag.  I chose to cut them out of two different pieces of scrapbooking cardstock that coordinates. The tag is rather long and I folded it in half in order to write inside.

How To Make A T Shirt Into A Pillow

Repurpose a Band T-shirt

This post and photos may contain Amazon or other affiliate links. If you purchase something through any link, I may receive a small commission at no extra charge to you. Any supplies used may be given to me free of charge, however, all projects and opinions are my own.

We take our kids to concerts, well I should say their aunt takes them more than we do! The girls are teens now but over the years they have collected quite a few band t-shirts and as they grow, they grow out of them. There are some shirts more than others that they would like to keep. So I offered to make a pillow from a recently outgrown shirt. Using a pillow insert from Fairfield World makes this craft easy to do. I ordered a 2 pack of 14" pillow inserts on Amazon.
