Welcome to my stop in today’s 20/20 Handmade Gifts Blog hop!


Today the Glue Dots team is showcasing fun ways to make a handmade gift in under 20 minutes + a budget of just $20.

My supplies:

A ceramic tile: $0.50

Glitter tape (Target) $1.00

Silver Twine (Target, one spot) : $1.00

Sticker sheet (Echo Park): $2.99

Sequins (bought online): $1.00

Glitter: I have had this for ages, so I dont know its price.

I also used a doily, some sewing thread


I adhered the sewing thread, glitter tape and stickers onto the doily. It then used Glue Dots Pop ups to pop the butterfly up. I added a tiny silver twine bow onto the butterfly using Mini Glue Dots. Mini glue dots are what I always run out of first! They are so darn cute 🙂


I then adhered the doily onto the tile using a few pop up Glue Dots. It is pretty sticky and holds good. I added my sentiment, and scattered a few sequins using the mini Glue dots again. The mini Glue Dots roll is the one I use in my dispenser because those are the ones I reach for most often.


I finally added a a glue line at the bottom and burnished some aqua glitter onto it. Just to add some turquoise in the bottom of the tile.

And that’s it! The tile is ready to be gifted 🙂

  5. Super cute! Had no idea ceramic tiles were so cheap 🙂 On second thought, maybe I didn’t need to know that!
