September 18-20, 2023

A 3-day virtual event for aspiring handmade gift-makers ready to take action!


Presented by the Handcrafted Gifts Made Simple Membership

Watch the video below to learn how this free event will set you up with 10 REAL handmade gift ideas (and expert-taught step-by-step instructions)!

Making handmade gifts takes a whole lot more than just pinning ideas to your "Xmas Gifts" Pinterest board.

You’re getting a lot of things right:

  • You’re researching gifts ideas to wow your favorite people
  • You’re starting a collection of winning handmade ideas
  • You have the best intentions to bring them to life

But…when it comes to turning ideas into actual gifts, your inner doubters and your lack of strategies like to get in the way


can’t see how handmade gifts can fit into your already busy life

feel stressed out just thinking about making the perfect gift

are concerned that your hard work won’t be appreciated

feel like your skills aren’t good enough to make a “worthy” gift

always seem to start making gifts too late in the year

There has got to be a better way!

You dream of finding the day when your handmade gifts are a smashing success, because you love making them AND everyone loves receiving them.

Maybe you're...

ready to learn some new skills that will help you create better gifts

ready for your mind to be opened up to ideas you’ve never tried before

ready to step up as the expert handmade gifts you were always meant to be

This is exactly what you’ll experience at Become a Handmade Gift Boss Summit!

The Become a Handmade Gift Boss Summit will give you REAL ideas and the matching step-by-step process to help you step away from your Pinterest board and start creating instead.

Join us and learn from 10 expert crafters who will equip with 10 you start-to-finish projects you can create before the holiday season even starts.

If you’re curious about making amazing handmade gifts, this event is for you! We’ll be specifically talking to crafters and focusing on creating beautiful items to gift to our family and friends, but anyone else who wants to get started with making gifts is welcome to join us.

The main portion of the summit runs from Septe,ber 18th -20th with pre-party sessions happening the week of September 11th. You’ll also be able to join our private Facebook community as soon as you register, so you can join in on the fun right away!

While most of the presentations for the summit are pre-recorded, there are some live elements, and the pre-recorded presentations are only available for 24 hours with your free ticket. So we encourage you to attend live if you can! We would love for you to set aside some time during the summit week to attend the live sessions, watch the pre-recorded workshops, and participate with others who are learning to make handmade gifts!

However, if you’re not able to attend all of the sessions live, go ahead and grab your free ticket, and you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to the Gift Boss Insider Pass for extended access.

Your free ticket includes 24 hour access to each of the workshops. If you need more time, you can always upgrade your ticket to the Gift Boss Insider Pass after registering, which will give you extended access to the workshops along with premium bonuses from our speakers and more! 

To avoid tech glitches, give you the best possible experience, and keep things easy for the speakers, the workshopss are pre-recorded and will be released at a scheduled time during the summit. However, the speakers will be hanging out in our private Facebook group with dedicated threads where you can connect with them and ask your questions! There will also be opportunities to join us for bonus live events throughout the week.

On the 20th, the events will all be live, so keep an eye on the Facebook group notifications to get information on those events.

No. When you register, you’ll be added to the Create A Handmade Holiday email list so we can send you updates for the event and links to each day’s workshops. After the summit is over, you’ll continue to hear from us, but you can unsubscribe at any time. 

Each of the speakers will have free resources available that you can access by providing an email address, but the speakers will not get your email address unless you choose to give it to them specifically. That way, you only hear from the people you really love and don’t have to worry about getting added to 10 email lists that you’re not interested in.

You can learn more in our Privacy Policy.

With the Gift Boss Insider Pass you get access to one co-crafting session during the event.


In these 60-minute sessions, we’ll hop on Zoom (you can choose to have your video on or off) and get some work done! 


We’ll start by sharing what we hope to accomplish, dive into work, and give updates on how we did at the end.


This is a great chance to start seeing results instantly from this event. I’ll be in the chat to answer any questions you come across and to give feedback!


The co-crafting session will be held on September 20 at 11am PST

The panels are a live call about a specific topic with a group of our speakers. As a Gift Boss Insider Pass holder, you’ll not only have access to the live call and replay, but you’ll also be able to submit questions in advance to have answered on the call.

TOPIC: the Handcrafted Gifts Made Simple Membership
