Have you started planning what to make as gift for this coming year end greeting seasons? This Antique Pocket Mirror is one of the perfect gifts that you can DIY. It is quick to make and presentable as a gift for lady friends and relatives. I have made a few and keep them until end of this year. Some lucky friends or relatives will have it in their Christmas stocking soon 🙂
I am using a high quality folding compact pocket mirror case that has two mirrors inside, a regular mirror on one side and a close-up mirror on the other. It comes with a plastic plate that we can craft on it, therefor, I covered the plate with fabrics that have beautiful felt decals on it and some with needlepoint craftwork made by my sister.
Felt Decal design is a quick to make but the needlepoint craftwork gives a precious touch to the pocket mirror. Likewise, You may also use some beautiful printing fabrics to embellish the pocket mirror. How about adding rhinestone or iron-on decal instead? Ribbon embroidery could be another precious one to make.
I just can’t help but to keep one to myself. Time for me to touch up my make-up. Muak!!!
