Homemade tags :)
For my sister, I created her own illustrated range. I chose a tartan, which I painted out in watercolours before scanning in and applying to a phone case for her iPhone 5. I then used the original illustration to back a clock, and make tags for the rest of my presents.

For my Dad, I also made him a phone case for his iPhone 5. He's a big fan of my Amsterdam print, so I created a bespoke pattern of the buildings in rows of streets. I had originally tested out these cases in the summer when I created a custom one for myself. Top tip - white picks up colour from clothes! So I made sure there wasn't too much white around the edges here. I also got him a discount card with Time Out, and was looking at just giving a piece of paper on Christmas Day - not my idea of a present! So I painted him a watercolour stand-in card and put the piece of paper in a box - much nicer.
For the bike mad boyfriend, I illustrated his motorbike on to a clock - it's always time for a bike ride then!
Bike Clock for the Boy!
For some Secret Santa presents, I made the cocktails and kittys bunting from Mollie Makes, and made the most of my own Christmas present making some madeline cakes. I also made some cute photo frames for polaroid photos by following Claireabellemakes' tutorial here.
It turned out great!
Phone cases were printed with Awesome Merchandise for an average of £13.
Label cutter I've had for a few years, but picked it up in Hobby Craft originally.
Clocks I picked up from IKEA, a bargain at about £3 each I think.
