An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home

Hello, everyone, and welcome to another post of the week. This time I got something a little special. A project made for a different reason that I will tell you guys in a bit. This is An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home.

Well, this might be an idea that you can make at home for a friend or someone you like. This one will be dedicated to an awesome blogger and I’m going to introduce her to you guys.

I use this idea where I make a DIY project as a collaboration with other bloggers. However, this time I decided to make this post and project a gift and as appreciation.

She is a great person and has an awesome personality. Also, a big inspiration who wants to achieve goals and dreams and that is something cool. And she is funny too.

Today’s guest will be like I said an awesome blogger. And she helps a lot of people in the blogging community, social media, and in general life with her content. She gives great tips and things you can learn.

Before showing you the project, let me introduce you to the one and only Chloë. She blogs over at life through my dark eyes. Also, she has Twitter if you want to follow her at Chloe.

I haven’t shown her the project yet as I’m writing this. But Chloe, I hope you will like it haha.

Also, I’m curious what you guys think about this project. Let me know in the comment below. Do you like it? and would you do it for a friend or a family member?

Do you think I did a good job or not? don’t forget to share your thought at the end of this post.

Anyways, this gift idea is going to need, as usual, cardboard and paper. I know… it seems that there are unlimited things we can make out of these two haha.

My goal for this year is to have a workshop and then, I’m going to be able to get the heavy machines and use other materials like wood and iron for projects and ideas.

However, even using cardboard and paper, there are plenty of things you can do with it. And I’m thinking of new ideas and more ways I can use them and build something.

The paper on this project is going to be A4 papers. I used to have thick paper and that would be better. But I’m trying to run out of A4 papers haha. I still have a lot and I’m using it for all recent projects.

So now I’m going to share with you what I need for this awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home and then I’m going to talk more about it.

The required items

Cardboard base, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
cardboard stand, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
Another cardboard stand, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
More cardboard stand, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
Circle and stand, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
A star and cardboard stand, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home
Letter cardboard, An awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home

Alright, so here are almost all the important things that I’m going to use to make this DIY gift. It’s all cardboard for now and easy to get but sometimes difficult to cut because I have shaky hands haha.

So First, I cut a big cardboard board and that will be the base for this gift. This is 16cm long and 27cm wide which is perfect to hold everything. Because I’m doing something cool for this idea.

Then, I cut cardboard pieces to make stands out of them and this has a meaning which I will explain when I added the white layer. I’m going to make 3 stands with different measures.

Next, is the cool things that I’m going to make and we will need a circle with a custom stand. This one is just for decoration and I made a stand for it.

Also, coming next is the star and this is to represent her as a big star in the sky.

The best thing about these two is that you will be able to interact with them. For now, I can only make it spin but I’m still learning more ways. However, you can spin both the star and the circle, how awesome is that.

The last thing is something I always use to show and indicate whom this project will be for. And usually, I like to choose the first letter of the person’s name.

You might ask what if there are many people who start with the same letter, well, of course, there are. But you will see it in a bit. How I’m going to make it special.

The making of the project awesome DIY gift idea that you can make at home

Well, now I’m going to show you some steps of me working on this project. Making each part of it. It’s going to be a long read but I’m going to make it short haha.

The cardboard stands

I started easy and made the three stands. Two small and one big and a little longer. It was for a specific reason and you will have to wait a little bit. Because I want to show you when I reveal the finished look of them and explain it.

Making the cardboard stands is very easy. Just glue each piece on the edge as you can see in the picture above. And close it from the sides and above.

The picture above is the two stands for the star and the circle. As you can see, the same concept but with a circle shape at the end of each side.

The letter

Well, next I always like to put the letter in 3D and for that, I have to get two pieces of the letter and connect them with cardboard in the middle. As you can above but without the color yet.

The process of gluing everything

Alright, so now I’m going to show you guys everything coming together. And the finished look of this project. This is after I added the white layers and everything to it.

Don’t forget to share your thoughts on it and give it a like if you liked it. I’m tracking how well my projects and posts. So it means a lot if you guys gave it a like below.

First I glued the cardboard stands and I told you guys this has a meaning. As you can see in the picture. They are in different measures and I’m sure you guys have seen something like that before.

When a champion wins and takes number 1. And they present the top three, they usually do something it like that. I thought would be cool to say a compliment using only the projects but I had to explain for you guys haha. I wonder where Chloe would be? haha are you guys ready to see it?

And here is the star and the circle. And you can spin these as you want which is cool. At first, I thought of the star only but later, I decided to add the circle for more decoration haha.

Alright, next I’m going to show you which spot Chloe took and the finished look of this project.

BOOM! Chloe took number 1 haha. It’s a fun idea to make this and a way to compliment using only DIY project. She is the best blogger and an amazing person. Please show her some love.

Well, if there are many people with the same name, but not many can match with the same colors, you know haha.
