Laminated Gifts

laminated birthday gifts

I often make matching laminated gifts for children, these are a really easy and unique gift to give! The photo above shows some gifts I recently made for a friend of my youngest daughter.

I design my cards online, I currently use Picnik - but this is closing in a couple of weeks so need to find another site quick! I use this design and alter it to make a placemat which could also be a bedroom door sign.  I also make a couple of matching bookmarks.  I haven't shown it on the photo but you could also make some matching gift tags to go with the present and also some NO ENTRY bedroom door handle signs. Once I print them out (often on card) I then laminate all of these, except the Cards. Once laminated, I either trim them with scissors, crafting knife or a trimmer.

These gifts are great for all children , especially if you don't know what to get them - you can't really go wrong with some personalised gifts!

I have a very basic laminator machine which I have had for a couple of years now and it is very useful for placemats and bookmarks which I make quite often. Bookmarks are great for both children and adults, I make many laminated bookmarks for family members.

  1. Thanks for adding this wonderful idea to Creative Monday. Looks lovely! Have a good week.

  2. What a great idea! Children love receiving things that are personalized for them. I can still remember the thrill it gave me when I was a child. I would love to have a laminating machine... I can think of so many things I would use it for! Perhaps I need to put this on my wish list.

    Thank you for your visit to and comment on my blog. :-)
