Holiday gift crafting is in full swing over here, and I can never seem to just stick to my list and save myself some stress.
For example, I made a planned project for my mom last week (which I can't talk about because she may read this), which led to an unplanned project for my sister (who doesn't read this blog, so we're good).
|The most time consuming part of this project was figuring out how to divide a circle in to 10 equal parts.|
It all started with an order of color changing nail polish that was delivered in ugly, cheap brown boxes. I couldn't fathom wrapping them up and presenting them to my sister, so I thought I would make my own gift box for her.
|Adding binding to vinyl makes it a heck of a lot easier to sew.|
A nail polish caddy! Of course! Much math ensued... :( But, once I finally figured it all out, I was pretty proud of myself for creating something fun and functional. It holds all 10 bottles of polish, plus a center cavity for nail accessories, and it has a drawstring to close it all up!
|Those are cotton balls in the middle, which I swapped out for a jar of remover w/ a sponge.|
