Cute Gift Ideas with the Button Press

It’s Sandra here on the blog today sharing cute gift ideas with the Button Press, whether you want to decorate gift boxes, gift tags, handmade notebooks or pillow boxes. This post will help you to make cute gifts and add that little something to make your paper creations shine. Join me on a creative adventure that starts with picking a design and ends with creating adorable gifts for friends, family, and yourself.

My project inspiration for you today:

  • two cute Fall-themed pillow boxes
  • a fun cotton gift bag
  • three clean and simple gift tags
  • a handmade notebook and a slip-in-pocket to store your favorite buttons and flairs
  • the most simple Halloween gift box

Let’s start with the most simple Halloween gift box ever. Make a box, tie a ribbon around the box and add a large button with a friendly ghost design. And you’re done already! I’m sure the ‘Trick-or-Treaters‘ will LOVE this special gift.

Now onto the next gift inspiration. Make a notepad with the Cinch (or any other bookbinding machine) and add a sweet rosette onto the cover. The Button Press Rosette Kit has everything you need to make unique embellishments for presents. Or create a slip-in-pocket (either with double-sided tape or by sewing around the edges) and add a rosette with a lovely design.

Pillow boxes are easy to make with the Pillow Punch Board and they make great gifts too! And if you add a handmade paper flower, fun flairs with butterfly designs or a simple ‘Hello’ – I’m sure you’re friends and family will be delighted about your gift-wrapping skills :).

Flair buttons are also great to create clean and simple gift tags. Just cut a paper tag, and add flairs, a ribbon and a stylish bow … these tags will make your gifts awesome!

Last but not least, decorate a simple cotton gift bag and turn it into a personalized gift. Decoration ideas: add tassels, buttons, and a name tag. Assemble all items in style and your gift is ‘ready to go’.
