Quick & Easy Handmade Gift Tutorials

We all get there at one time or another… we forgot to pick something up and need a quick gift OR we are on a budget and want to make some handmade gifts.  Whether looking for something small (cookies almost always go over well here!) or something a little more special there are TONS of great ideas on Pinterest.  With the hundreds of thousands of free tutorials or downloadable patterns you can find something for just about anyone pinned there.  I have a bit of a problem, my Pinterest that has over 6,000 pins alone sorted out into all sorts of categories and most of which are free.

Here are just a few fast & free tutorials I found that use many items people have in their homes already, can be picked up at many stores OR can be made with repurposed/recycled items you can often get for free from friends and family.
