Holiday Gifts Under $10.00

While I was making some things for the Holiday Market, I thought that some of them might make for great holiday gifts.  Best of all, they cost under $10.00!  It’s early to be posting about Christmas for me, but when you are making gifts it can never be too early.

Decorate a dollar store prayer candle with scrapbook paper.  Embellish with some crinkled seam binding.  Candle – $1.00; scrapbook paper – 12x12 sheet $.59; crinkled seam binding – approx. $1.00 {I buy mine in various colors in 5 yard increments off Etsy}.

Using that same sheet of scrapbook paper {you’ll have some left over}, cover a match box.  A two-pack of boxed matches is $1.00 at the dollar store or you can get the six box pack of mini boxes.

Finally, you can find the clear, flat back decorative accent gems at the dollar store {by the mesh bag}.  Still using that one piece of scrapbook paper, you can cut out pieces to fit the gems.  Add magnets {a package is usually about $2.50 at the craft store} and you’re done!  You could present these in an Altoid tin also covered up with some scrapbook paper.

A coordinated gift that costs less than $10.00!

Good Afternoon Kathy, What lovely ideas. I really like the flat decorative gems which you pasted paper onto the base, they look so very pretty. I think these would also be nice in a glass bowl. Thank you for such lovely ideas. Best Wishes Daphne
