Personalized Photo Pendants or Keychain DIY

Personalized Photo Pendants and Keychains // thepapermama.com

Handmade gifts are the best. Easy to make handmade gifts are EVEN better. These pendants (or keychains) are about as easy as it gets. Just a bit of clay, a photo, mini cookie cutter, glue, and a couple other small things and you have a personalized gift for a loved one. Personally, I don’t wear a TON of necklaces, but I have a few I love and mostly wear while I’m out of town. I’m currently using my personalized photo pendants as keychains (and the kiddo has claimed the kitty pendants for her necklaces).

The best thing about these little creations is they were easy to make. I just spaced out, rolled out some clay, glued down some photos and let me creativity flow. We have a few gift giving holidays on the way (hello Mother & Father’s day), so might as well get the gift planning started now. If you love these little pendants, head over to HP Create to get the full tutorial and directions, check out the original post here.

Paper Cosmo Flower Hair Clip or Gift Bow! Comes with a free printable!

Paper Cosmo Flower Hair Clip or Gift Bow! Comes with a free printable! // thepapermama.com

Way back when… before I was married and before the kid… I made a lot of paper goodies. I made paper crowns to sell to brides for their bridal showers, and I also made paper flower hair clips. I haven’t made a paper flower in about 5 years, so I decided to try it out again for my HP Create post. I made these cute little Cosmo flowers! They are perfect for your hair, but I think I love them more as a bow on a gift. The recipient can just pop the flower off the gift and wear it on their head. Double present.

This DIY is so simple. I’d say it will take you less than 15 minutes to make the whole thing. Well, maybe. Hopefully. Hee. The printout plus directions make it SUPER simple to create your own. Just cut out the template, follow the instructions, and ta-dah! I even made a little video for you to follow. I shared it below, just to give you an idea of how simple it is to make.

You’ll want to make 8 of them, or maybe 20! Right now, the Cosmo flowers I made are usually in my kiddo’s hair.

The full tutorial to make a paper Cosmo flower (plus the free printouts) are over here. Side note: if you have a wedding coming up, these flowers would be perfect for the bridesmaids and flower girl’s hair. This would also be a fun printout to make for a girl’s craft night (easy and inexpensive)! I love craft nights. 

Happy Friday!!!

Wrapped Charm Bracelet Craft

Wrapped Charm Bracelet on Hp Create // thepapermama.com

In January I finally gave in and made my own wrap bracelet for HP Create. I’ve been seeing these things all over the internets and I gotta say: This was a fun craft! It was relaxing and I was able to completely space out while making this. In the post you’ll also find some fun patterns to trace over to make some shrink film charms to add to your wrap bracelet!
