I love giving gifts to my friends and family. What with furnishing the flat and slowly becoming accustomed to paying bills however, I am rather lacking in funds and so this year I have had to get a bit creative. A few of my friends are aware of how much I enjoy making polymer clay jewellery and have commented that they like those that I have made in the past (e.g. Aztec Bunting Necklace and Tea & crafts), so when their birthdays came up, I decided to make them a necklace myself. Using some materials I already had, I gave them each a totally unique necklace and saved myself a few pennies in the process.
Because I am always one for co-ordinating presents, I bought a matching lilac Barry M Nail Varnish (in Berry Ice Cream) to finish off the gift.
What money-saving handmade gifts have you made?
