Thank you so much for joining us for the December SSS Blog Hop! This month our projects focus on quick and easy gift ideas for the holidays. As we enter the month of December, we find that the Christmas holidays are fast approaching. From decorating our homes to holiday baking, we realize that shopping days are running low. That's why we want to share quick and easy gift ideas that anyone can create in time for that special someone!
As you hop, you will see that many of our design team members are giving away some great blog candy this month. Leave a comment for each project and you will be entered in to win automatically! Winners will be drawn on Monday, December 16th, so don't forget to leave us those comments. Please notice the blog list at the end of this posting and head on over to see the rest of what the bloggers have to inspire you!
I'm going to admit, that handcrafted gift giving is all about the ease of a project but also a unique way to present gifts other than the average store bought packaging. So, please keep in mind when viewing my projects that these are really easy, maybe not super quick, but half an hour or less to finish.
My first project is simple. It is a matter of cutting down two pieces of cardstock and scoring it, and then gluing it together.
I added a little divider inside the box to seperate the nail polish and lip gloss. This project literally only took me about 20 minutes start to finish.
Here is the lid off. I made a box for holding all 6 of the crackers and made a lid out of acetate film. I made a cute little tag using the Snowflake Soriee by stamping it in Bermuda Bay ink onto Whisper White card stock and punching out with the 2 1/2" Circle punch and then threading it onto Pool Party Seam Binding that I had wrapped around the acetate(it was more to hide the glue that was used to make the lid-hehe).
Here's my last project for the hop. Again, using the Warmth and Wonder Stamp set( I wish this was a permenant stamp set in the catalog-oh well, going into my hoarding pile when the mini expires) and some of the Season of Style DSP, I made a Christmas card. I won't go into detail on this card, it's pretty simple, but I wanted to share it with you, because I was going to use it for my Christmas cards this year, but I went with something entirely different. Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed the projects on my blog and that it inspires you to make something fun to give away for Christmas. Even if it's one thing, it sometimes just feels good to feel creative!
