Christmas Craft #3

One last project for you on this happy Christmas Eve! :)

This is another Pinterest find - I just LOVE pinterest. :)

The blog that I saw this on said that they took ribbon and sewed it to ruffle it. I found ribbon that I really wanted to use but it was wired... so I thought I would try just pulling the wire to make it ruffle. Yippee!! It worked and I didn't even have to whip out my sewing machine!

So, after I ruffled most, if not all, the ribbon I started hot gluing it onto a floral styrofoam cone. I started at the bottom and worked my way up - it was so fast and easy! I just love those kind of crafts. :)

The blog that I found this on used the same small finials at the top but also had them on a spindle (or candle holder) base. I decided that I like it better as is. I tied a bow and some small jinglebells on bakers twine to finish it off.

I hope that everyone has a FABULOUS Christmas tomorrow!!

PS - Sorry for the horrible photo - I just couldn't get a good angle on my counter! :(

Christmas Crafts #2

Just a quick post to share my 2nd craft for the Holiday season...

Tammy (the other Scrappy Mom) bought a kit to made a standing countdown calender that used bead board, a metal sheet and vinyl. I LOVED it - but they were all sold out so I decided to try to make it myself. Since I already had a table-top one that my kids keep knocking over (and over, and over) I decided to make one that goes on the fridge.

I got a 12 x 12 sheet of metal flashing at Home Depot - covered the edge with strips of scrapbook paper to help "soften" them a bit. I designed the vinyl in MTC in three layers, one for each color. First I laid down the black layer with the title and icons. Next came the red layer and finally the white layer with the numbers which sets on top of the icons.

I put self-adhesive magnets on the back and attached a super-strong disc magnet to the Santa face, which is a small Christmas tree ornament. Ta-Da ... a Christmas countdown calender is born! :)

Hope you enjoyed my little project today! I have one more to share... possibly even today since tomorrow is Christmas Eve and will be busy for most of us. :)

Happy Holidays!

Christmas Crafts - #1

Wow - it's been a busy holidays season around here! How about you? This time of year sure is hectic, isn't it? But what a great way to wrap up the year. :)

I have a few Christmas crafts to share with you over the next few days. Here is the 1st one...

I saw these nativity blocks on Pinterest and just had to make some myself. In fact, I wound up making so many (17) that I went and bought a 7.25" electic miter saw. I LOVE IT! I did the 1st batch by hand and my arm was sore for days. The 2nd batch was like butter. If you have small wood projects/crafts I highly recommend one! :)

I made these for all my girlfriends, in-laws, and the ladies from my MOMS group. Everyone seemed to really like them. :)

Stop back by tomorrow for a new project. Hope to see you then!

Happy Holidays!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - It's in the bag!

Happy Tuesday! I hope that everyone is having a very happy holiday season - thank you for taking time to join me today.

My project for this weeks TTC is a little treat for one of my daughter's Christmas gifts. The challenge this week is to use a bag in your project. This one actually stumped me a little bit, so I decided to work backwards and started with the stamp and made the project match it. LOL I used my new Fiskars 1.5" circle punch and 2" scalloped circle punch to make the tag.

I just tucked the bag under the ribbon on the package but you could also punch a couple of holes and tie the ribbon though the bag. I used an Itty Bitty Bag from our Scrappy Moms Stamps store. The sentiment is from our SMS A Holiday to Remember stamp set.

I hope you liked my little bag and I hope Emily does too. :) Come play along with us at the SMS Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

Happy Holidays!

Terrific Tuesday Chellenge - Christmas!

Oh, cow! I totally forgot to put this post up last night! So, sorry for being so late...

This week's TTC is a Christmas project - that's right any Christmas project!

I have wanted to try a "window" card and thought this would be a simple one to start off with... Boy, was I wrong! LOL The snowflake layer too sooo long to cut and it had too many little pieces to glue down. Then it looked so plain that I decided to add Stickles to the snowflakes just to make it take longer. I was thinking that I would use this design for this year's Christmas card, now I'm back to the drawing board. LOL

I hope that you will join us for this Terrific Tuesday Challenge!
