Creative Books for Gifts and Home

A couple of lovely books I have with some great ideas for making gifts and papercraft.

Homemade Gifts Vintage Style will inspire you to make gifts using items like old jumpers, blankets, buttons, wallpaper, cups and give them a new lease in life by turning them into gifts like stuffed toys, teacup candles, cards and much more.

Papercrafting in No Time shows you how to make 50 projects making use of letters, labels and more.  Mobiles, gift boxes, notebooks, wreath, paper bowls, cards, tags, cupcake toppers and decoupage eggs to name but a few are featured in this book.   Clear step-by-step instructions and templates are provided.
