Today's project is easy and so fun! I love lists and I know plenty of people that love their lists too. This clipboard is great because you can write with a little chalk or clip on your notes for the day. Perfect to hang right by your desk. Find an area where you can make a mess and get started. There are just 4 simple steps to make this happen. 1. Spray your basic clipboard with chalkboard spray paint. Make sure to give it a couple good coats. 2. Create a stencil using your Silhouette cameo for the To do's image- I used vinyl to ensure I got a crisp stencil that wouldn't bleed. 3. Using white paint sponge over your stencil. 4. Embellish with some chalk in a little envelop and a stamped tag and ornament tied to the top! No need to even wrap! Join me again tomorrow for another fun handmade gift! XoXo- Amy
It's a snowy afternoon worthy of some hot chocolate and perfect for some time spent christmas crafting. I'm excited to share with you day 1 of my 12 days of Handmade Holidays. I hope you will stop by! I have some fun things planned and maybe even a fun little giveaway. I've always been a papercrafter which means I have a small stash of supplies laying around here. Heehee!! So creating handmade gifts using paper seems like the perfect idea and today is Handmade Cards- read on to see what's inside.
I'm back today to share some more quick ideas to wrap up your holiday gifts. I hope you enjoyed the previous post and the holiday spirit is starting to get to you. I have a few friends that will see this post and laugh.... I said I would never like gold. Somehow I just love it! Can't get enough of it! They told me it would happen. I honestly thought they were crazy! Joke was on me:) I see these cute little muslin bags everywhere I go and I'm always thinking they could be so cute with gold... So I thought I'd share some of my favorite ways to use them that I think you will like and the great thing is you can take these ideas and customize your own bags using what you have around your craft room.
I'm officially kicking off the holidays around here. I thought it would be fun to share with you some gift wrapping ideas to get you in the mood! If you are like me you have a stash of boxes. Sometimes, it's hard to see past the boring exterior. Well I'm here to help with a few simple ideas using some basic crafting supplies. You might want to swing by your local craft store and grab a few stamps and ink if you don't own any because this week I'll be showing you how to put them to good use.
