Recycle All Those Saved Christmas & Holiday Cards

In keep­ing with the “I’m using what I have for Christ­mas and cut­ting out the need­less things I don’t” I recy­cled some saved Christ­mas cards and cre­ated two super easy gift card hold­ers from one Christ­mas card. I know I’m not the only per­son that saves hol­i­day cards. I can­not throw Christ­mas cards of any kind away. I love them all and espe­cially cher­ish the ones that have my grand­par­ents sig­na­tures inside. I started with a Christ­mas card that mea­sured 4″ x 5.75″ but you can use any card size you want. This size just...

DIY Holiday Gift Tags

I posted this tuto­r­ial last year and since it was so pop­u­lar I decided to repost it again. This Christ­mas I am still deter­mined to use what I have and not pur­chase any­thing if I can make it and gift tags were the first things to get knocked out of the pur­chas­ing depart­ment in this house. I made these cute gift tags using vin­tage images I’ve saved over the years. I think they make the most adorable tags and fig­ured I should share them with you. Sup­plies Used: Manila ATC’s, Dia­mond Stick­les, Red & White Baker’s Twine, Laser...

Weekend of Holiday Decorating

The Christ­mas tree is the first item to go up in our house dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. Ans­ley designed this “Pep­per­mint” tree a few years ago and we’ve kept it since. It’s a fun tree that is easy to put up and take down and lets face it dur­ing the hol­i­days easy is the key word. Once the tree is all set Ans­ley and I start to plan how we want to dec­o­rate the house. This year it is all about lights. In the den, we decided to hang three wreaths with white lights and some gar­land with red and white lights in the bay window. We added...

You’ve Been Grinched

You’ve Been Grinched

Here’s a lit­tle some­thing fun to do with your fam­ily, this week­end. We “Grinched” some neigh­bors one year in our neigh­bor­hood and had a blast. That year, we also dec­o­rated our Christ­mas tree super bright and funky and called it our “Grinch” tree. This is the one tree we still talk about to this day. You’ve Just Been Grinched! You’ve been selected as the recip­i­ent of this orna­ment. The Grinch made it espe­cially for you. If you want to see presents under your Christ­mas tree, Christ­mas morn­ing, you must fol­low his demands. 1....

Photo Ornaments

Photo Ornaments

  These orna­ments were first blogged about on Decem­ber 13, 2007 and are an easy and fun orna­ment to make for an orna­ment exchange, to give as a house­warm­ing gift using their fam­ily photo or attached to gifts for fam­ily and friends. Just one thing though, be care­ful… these are very frag­ile! I know first hand because I broke one. I think I’m going to look for some clear plas­tic orna­ments as they will be more durable. Sup­plies Needed: Clear Orna­ments, Trans­parency, Maya Road Rubons, Rib­bon, Faux Snow Tools Needed: Coluz­zle...

Lol­lipop Ornament

I’ve been search­ing through my “Blog Archives” and thought I would re-post this cute hol­i­day orna­ment that was orig­i­nally posted on Decem­ber 3, 2006. It’s a fun hol­i­day craft that’s per­fect for any age. Get­ting the tri­an­gles just right is a bit tricky but once you get the hang of it this project moves along quite fast. Sup­plies Needed: Pat­terned Paper, 2″ Cir­cle Punch (I used the Whale of a Punch), Adhe­sive, Craft Stick, Rib­bon, Eye­let, Jump Ring, Embroi­dery Floss, Stick­les (Crystal) Tools Used: Crop-a-dile, Scissors...
