Ice Cream Gift Card Holders

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday! I’d thought I’d share what I’m gave to the staff at my son’s school for the end of the year gifts… I planned something different for his main teachers, but I still wanted to say thank you to all the wonderful staff at his school. (secretary, nurse, traffic helpers, past teachers, OT, speech, etc.) I was looking for something inexpensive because I had so many to purchase. I thought...

Last Minute Teacher Gift Idea

Hello, crafty friends. As the school year is coming to an end, I thought I’d share a last minute teacher gift idea that I did for my son’s teachers… I like to add handmade touches to my gifts, especially when I’m giving a gift card.

Easter Treats

Hi, crafty friends. I have a couple of simple Easter treat bags to share today. These take very little time to pull together. I started by stamping THIS background stamp on to a plastic sandwich bag using THIS ink… I trimmed off the top portion of the bag.

Concord & 9th March Guest Designer-Week 3

Hello, crafty friends. Happy Friday. Today’s cards features new products from Concord & 9th… I have to say that THIS stamp set was my favorite from the release. I think it’s because it reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in the 80’s and I remember having rainbow wallpaper in my bedroom.  It also reminds me of the rainbow care bear I dressed up as for Halloween when I was five. Every time...

St. Patrick’s Day Gift Basket

Mini Pizza Box Valentines

Hi, crafty friends. I’m back today to share how I created these mini pizza box valentines… I’m always looking for unique ways to present a little gift. To create these 4×4 mini pizza boxes, I started with a 12×12 piece of paper and cut it down to 8.25 x 11.5. Then I made lots of score lines. I put my paper in my scoring tool horizontally and scored at 1 inch, 5.25 inches, 6.25...

Lip Balm Valentine Tags

Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing a few tags that feature a fun way to present a gift… THESE lip balm pouches are so fun.

I die-cut THIS coordinating lip balm pouch die in the center of the tag. I also did...

Ice Cream Gift Basket

Hello, crafty friends. Recently, I created an ice cream gift basket for a family as a gift and wanted to create something to add a handmade element to it. I thought THIS die would be perfect. I cut the die from a few pieces of felt and started stitching. I love how it turned out… I kept the cone part flat, just doubling up the layers. For the ice cream part, I stuffed it...

Simple Hot Cocoa Holders

Hello, crafty friends. Today’s project shares how to create simple hot cocoa holders. I wanted to share a project that encourages giving after the Holiday season. I plan on giving these to our delivery person who is bringing us packages daily in this freezing weather. I really like how simple these hot cocoa holders are. What makes these so simple is that they are a standard size card that has been sealed shut. So...
