Being a crafter/DIYer, I try to think of USEFUL handmade gift ideas for my friends and family. With Christmas so close these quick and easy ornaments are the perfect craft. These could be used a refrigerator magnet, tree ornament or as package tags. How fun would it be to wake up on Christmas morning with this cute tag on your present. Today I’m going to show you how I used the Dremel® Micro™8050 to make these great ornament/tags…a perfect gift for a friend or family member, as well as a perfect gift for you because the Dremel® Micro™8050 does just about everything you would need as a crafter or DIYer!
Here’s what you need:
- Dremel® Micro™8050
- Small piece of thin wood
- Ribbon and twine
After a trip to my messy garage I found these coasters that I had bought at a garage sale for $.25. Twenty five cents for two dozen coasters (yes I do realize they are ugly) seemed like such a good deal. They had been waiting quite a while to be turned into something amazing.
I used the Dremel® Micro™8050 to drill holes around the edge of the coasters. The drilling was so easy and fast with this great tool. I then used the twine to weave in and out of the holes around the edges. I added a clip, picture and bow and the job was done.
It literally took 15 minutes to do and, once you buy the tool…the cost of actually making these gifts is almost nothing!!
Light and easy to handle in tight spaces, the Dremel® Micro™8050 is packed with features that have crafters, hobbyists and DIYers in mind: soft grip, LED front-end lighting to illuminate projects, a docking station that continually charges, and an 8V Max Lithium-ion battery. The Micro 8050 can cut, carve, engrave, sand, grind, sharpen, clean and polish—helping you bring just about any brilliant project to life and the Micro 8050 is fully compatible with all Dremel rotary tool accessories. You can purchase the Micro 8050 online at Amazon.com and HomeDepot.com for $89 USD. For more information on Dremel products, project ideas and problem-solving tips, visit www.dremel.com.
