It's go time makers! The Christmas advent calendar begins tomorrow and that means that the big day is not too far away. We know that between decorating and gift giving, there's still a lot to do and that's why we're sharing 5 of our favorite DIY gift ideas that are sure to please.
If you have Eileen's Luggage Tag die and an adventurer on your list we have just the project for you! This fast DIY Genevieve created is not only a sweet gift, it's practical! Our favorite part of this DIY is that you're not limited to one single material. Genevieve used foam to create hers, but take a look at Nicole Wright's Backpack Tag - she used leather! Grab all the details on this DIY here.
Mini Drawstring Bag
What's easy to personalize and always looks SUPER cute? This adorable U.S. personalized drawstring bag! Michelle Stewart created this heart-tugging gift bag by die cutting vinyl with Eileen Hull's United States Map, Road Sign, Stamp & Postcard and Banners & Pennants thinlits and we think it's just perfect!

Celebrate Hoop Card
There's no denying the hoop trend. From home decor to necklaces, we've seen hoops everywhere. Laura from Make Life Lovely, created this adorable Celebrate hoop card (the perfect addition to a gift for a crafty friend) using Eileen Hull's Embroidery Hoop die. But the ideas don't stop there...with this die you can cut thicker materials like mat board and turn this little hoop (or a few) into an awesome home decor piece.
