5 Types of Mini Gifts for All Occasions

Hello Crafters!!! I think most of you are probably busy decorating and shopping for Christmas. I just wanted to share these cool + cutesy gifts I found online. These mini-gifts are not only good for Christmas but for all kinds of seasons or events like Quinceanera Recordatorios, Mis Quince Gift Favors, Wedding Gift Favor, Sweet 16 Gifts or Bat Mitzvah Gifts. 


Purses and Bags are very popular gifts for girls to give out. The Mini Grater Purse is great for Bridal Shower Gifts and the Mini Prada Bag is a great gift to a girl for any occasions.

This is my favorite find. The 2-tiered Wedding Cake is surrounded with mini wedding cakes that the bride can give to every guest. It's a fabulous idea to let your guest have to take home their own tiered cake.

These are Custom Design Quinceañera Exploding Box Invitations. The Client wanted to set the tone of her Mis Quince party right. A 3-Tiered Paper cake was used as the focal point of these Modern + Unique Quinceañera Pop-Up Invitations.

She wanted to have a # 15 Cut-put as the Cake Topper and Butterfly Pop-Up floaties surrounding the cake. The 4 panels have her invitation wordings and information + Quinceañera Photo. Many more designs can be found on JinkysCrafts Portfolio

Hollywood Theme Bat Mitzvah Place Card Holder

I am so excited to share this Custom Hollywood Theme Bat Mitzvah Place Card Holder/ Seating Arrangement I designed for one of my clients. I had to wait till the party is over before I could blog about this.

Hollywood depicts glamour, glitz, fun, excitement, action and entertainment. That's why Hollywood Theme Invitations are very popular for Weddings, Bat Mizvahs, Quinceañeras, and Sweet 16s.

This Hollywood Seating Arrangement or Hollywood Place Card Holder can serve as a Hollywood Gift Favor as well. This Unique Hollywood Design is a collaboration of Jinkys Crafts Support Team and our Client.

Jinkys Crafts Team helps you make your dream design possible.

Here's the recipe of this Hollywood Exploding Box Seating Card Holder

Top Panel, is a custom Bat Mitzvah logo that our Client had provided. 

The Right Panel is a Graphic Art that says Starring Client Name. This panel shows glamour and glitz

The Bottom Panel is a Hollywood Clapper that bears the seating #. 
And the Left Panel is the photo of the celebrant. 

And the center of attraction is the signature design of Jinkys Crafts . A well decorated Hollywood 3-Tier Cake surrounded with floating pop-up stars. 

This is one-of-kind Place Card Holder or Theme Party Seating Arrangement. 

I hope I inspired you today and feel free to comment or email me if you have any suggestions or inputs you want to share.

Dangling Christmas Ornament Packaging

Hi Fellow Crafters! I am excited to share a recent project I finished for a Corporate order. I was asked to custom design an ornament gift box for a company in Houston, Texas. They liked my Exploding Box Invitations Designs so much that they wanted that to be incorporated in their design.

Dangling Ornaments + Exploding Box    Save The Date

This Creative Christmas Ornament Packaging is so unique because, when the recipient opens the box, they will be surprised by what's in it. A Dangling Christmas Ornament + the Christmas Save the Date information on 4 panels + Pop-up floaties dancing around their Christmas logo. I absolutely love the final product. This is a collaboration between their Company's graphic Artist, Jinky's Crafts and their company Event planner.

Here's another Version that you could use for your personal holiday gifting.

If you think it is too late to place your custom order with us, that's not a problem as I included the step-by-step tutorials on my 12 Days of Christmas Crafts Tutorial E-Book ( 3rd Edition)

Do you love to work with Fabrics?? I do, although I can only do basic sewing. Here's a Flashback from last year's 12 Days of Christmas Crafts. A Fabric Flower Chocolate Bouquet.

This Fabric Flower Chocolate Fabric Bouquet step-by-step instructions was included on my 12 Days of Christmas Crafts E-Book ( 2nd Edition )

3D Christmas Card + DIY Cupcake Packaging

Hi guys! After launching my 12 Days of Christmas Crafts Tutorial E-Book yesterday, all I wanted to do was relax. The good thing about your hobby being your business don't know you are working. So, I dug out my Christmas stamps and designer papers and started making Christmas cards.

Christmas Side Step Card
Here's a Side Step Card I made. See, if you are like me that wants to shoot 2 birds in one stone.. this design is cool. It's a way to give someone a Christmas card, plus you can showcase your business cards and plug your company. Because, you know, the recipient of your cards will be displaying your handmade card you sent them. If you have an Etsy store, this Side Step Christmas Card will be perfect for you.

3D Holiday Card
This 3D Christmas Card is very easy to make. I really like using Rub On Stickers in my cards because I am very messy when I do my projects.  So having a ready made image full of colors and details like stamping is a breeze when making cards.

Ok, these are flashback projects from previous years. I am re-sharing them to you again so maybe you will get inspiration from them.

Exploding Cupcake Purse - Closed (2nd Edition E-Book)

This  Exploding Cupcake Purse can surely turn your gifts extraordinary. This specially embellished Exploding Cupcake Purse will hold your cupcake in place and will allow you to give away your baked goods in style. Having this DIY Cupcake packaging will give a personal touch to your giveaways. And you can be sure your guests will be very thankful for the wonderful gifts they received.

Handmade Cupcake Packaging 

The  Exploding Cupcake Purse template is very versatile, I used the same template in making these invitations for a Quinceañera/15 Años/15th Birthday client from New York.

Unique Purse Invitations
I had a blast making this Multipurpose Holiday Window Box  last year for MayArts blog hop. My inspiration was a combination of my Window Gift Box and Chocolate Tower Box from my 12 Days of Christmas Crafts E-Book

When you are gifting, they always is all about the packaging! This ordinary cupcake looks extra-ordinary and anyone who receives such gift will feel extra special. 

All sides of Multipurpose Window Gift Box

So, after eating the Cupcake, this Christmas Gift Box can also be used as a Christmas decoration. That's why I call this project a Multipurpose Holiday Window Gift Box

Look at my floor, does that not look like a real tile? That's from G45 Christmas Emporium Paper Pack. Also my 3D Christmas Tree, it does not need so much decoration because the G45 Christmas pattern paper is enough. Love it! With the right paper, you can create Papercrafts more realistic.

 Holiday Window Gift Box

I love to read comments too, so please don't forget to leave some LOVE! THANKS!

Thanks a lot for stopping by. Please stay tuned for more Holiday projects to come.
