12 Days of Christmas

Hello to everyone who is stopping by for Scrapbook News and Review Magazine's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

I'd like to welcome you to my silly little blog. Take a look around but don't be distracted by the cuteness that lurks on these pages. My suggestion is to try not to look directly into the eyes of the little one we call Jen....


Today I have two seperate holiday projects that I would like to share with you. The first are some cute christmas tree ornaments that I handmade for our tree this year using a bunch of ribbon scraps and some canvas (and I just know that all you scrappers and cardmakers out there don't have ANY ribbon in your stash....right???)

hee hee.

So what I did was:

- I cut two pieces of canvas in a triangle using my pinking shears
- Sewed different lengths of ribbon right onto the front of one piece
- Added about 10 inches of ribbon to the top to use as the hanger
- Sewed the two pieces together leaving a small gap to add stuffing
- Once stuffed to my liking I sewed the gap closed, and there you have it!

These are so quick and easy and they can be added right to the tree, can be used as an adorable door hanger, or can also be used to top a special gift.

The second project was done using my handy dandy and always trusty Cricut! I used the Tags, Bags, and Boxes cartridge to cut out the 2" circle tags from kraft paper, then I used the Doodletype cartridge to cut out the snowflakes on white cardstock. I found many different snowflake shapes on a bunch of different cartridges so you can look through and pick out your favorite. After everything was cut all I needed to do was glue the snowflake to the front of the tag, stamp the back To: and From:, and add a red string for the tie. These gift tags are a fun way to add handmade to the holidays and will be on all the gifts I give this year!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out my Etsy shop funsize creations for other fun handmade goods for the holidays, and for even more eye candy stop by my sewing blog and take a look around.

Happy holidays everyone!!
