Birthday Presents

May 28, 2010

With my mom and I just recently having birthdays, presents have been the talk of the house. Over the last few weeks I’ve a few awesome ideas for presents, whether it be a birthday or any other reason. The first is the Present Tree, above, found on Oh Happy Day.
The second are these Surprise Balls, which I found on Poppy Talk. If crepe paper, confetti, and lots of little fun prize toys like those found in the bottom of your cereal box doesn’t scream fun, then I don’t know what does. If you’d like to make your own, you can find tutorials here and here.
Last, but definitely not least, is this Birthday Surprise in the Mail courtesy of Oh Happy Day. She blew up a picture of her friend and put it on a fun background. She then cut the picture into small pieces and mailed them to people with instructions for them to draw pictures, write notes, etc on the back and mail them back to the birthday girl. While this would definitely be a lot of work, I think it would be a huge success and great surprise in the end.

I definitely want to try making all of these for people. Hand-made gifts, especially these, are so much better than store-bought.
