This year, instead of buying each other presents, me and two friends decided to do a homemade Christmas. I didn't have any ideas at first but in the end I decided to made gingerbread men and a card with loads of photos on :)
Here are a few photos to show you what they turned out like...
I will admit the gingerbread looked a bit rubbish on its own, even though I spent hours making and decorating all the shapes! I decided to wrap them up and try and make them look pretty. Here's how I did it if you want to try: I used boxes for the bottom, I wrapped one of these in tissue and the other in wrapping paper. The inside is just a patterned paper napkin from Ikea. I put the gingerbread inside and put cling-film over the top then tied string round the whole box. Voila :)
Luckily my friends really liked them, I'm yet to receive their presents but I'll update you on what their ideas were :) Let me know what you think, a nice idea or stick to buying presents?
Hope you all had a magical Christmas,
