Handmade Christmas Gifts

I love making hand-made gifts! Do you?

This year I wanted my kids to make gifts for each-other. I think it’s cute to see them become so invested in the project. ‘Little L’ & I made these bobby pins  for ‘Miss M’.

Lets hope she doesn’t tell her before Christmas! A huge task for a 3 1/2 year old!

I wanted to make something a bit unconventional but still cute.

I grabbed some Mod Podge and some buttons and voila…

Want to make your own?

Materials used:

Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

Podgeable Paper Flip Books

Hot Glue



Bobby Pin


1. Cut a circle that will rest inside of the button’s rim (I like these buttons because they have a rim that holds the dimensional magic).

2. If needed, trim the circle and lay inside of the button.

3. Cover the inside of the button with Dimensional Magic, pressing the paper down with the nozzle as you go. Let dry for 3 hours. (side note: I LOVE this stuff! Have you ever tried to make clear resin with one of those kits that you buy at the craft store? It’s a serious lab experiment and you end up with bubbles? This is SOOOO much easier and NO bubbles!).

4. Cut a felt circle for the back of the button and cut a small slit near the edge.

5. Insert bobby pin through the slit and hot glue to the button.

So, what do you think?!

    I can think of 100 different ways to use these! With words, photos, pictures… so many different shapes, colors, and more can be mod podged onto the buttons!
