Gift card Holder!~

Hello Crafty Friends!
Gift Cards...we all give them! So why not give them in a super cute 
holder crafted by you! ;) 
You can make a holder in no time, no machine needed really!

To create this super cute holder grab your scraps, yep thats all I used. the tag can be any size you like, I measured a credit card and went from there! It is best if you use heavy cardstock so its sturdy! Add a border using a punch, my cover is handpainted, but a snowman cut from your machine would be super adorable too! To finish it off I added some Rumple Ribbon in olive you!

I have been asked a few times on sharing how I paint my snowmen. I hope to get something together soon!
Thanks for looking!

Sock Snowman!

Hello Crafty friends!
Its hard to believe Christmas is almost here.
I have so many crafty projects to make and so little time!
I have been bursting at the seams to share these little cuties with you.
I am guest designing for Lovebug Creations this month. eeeek super excited!
I loveee there ribbon so much, but most of all love the lovely ladies who own this company! They are amazing! ♥ 

To create these cuties you, need some socks, turn inside out and cut off toe part, secure that end with a rubber band and turn sock right side out. Fill with rice, and secure top with rubber band. Take a fuzzy sock (from $ store) and cut top off and make that the scarf or shirt of the snowman, take rest (toe part) and make a hat, there are several ways to do this, for one I left it all attached and for the bigger one I trimmed toe piece off and tied off with ribbon! Whew a little long winded lol I wished I would have took pics of process. If you have any questions leave it in comments with a way to reach you :)

Ok so snowman is made. Now the face. For the nose I used incense cones from $ store, painted orange and added glitter. Eyes are black buttons from Michaels $ bin. I like them without the mouth so I didnt add one.

Now onto the decorations. Grab that super cute WINTER  WISHES simple sheer ribbon and make scarfs and ties off hats. Add Bells with twine. I used Martha Stewart branch punch for a little extra fun! I also added sequins just to finish it off!

Thanks for looking!
Hope I inspired you!
