Customized gifts, cards, and mini albums. This blog represents a series of projects,styles,tutorials, and digital files. My passion is to make Art with Encouragement. You can find me on Facebook and Youtube sharing ideas and tutorials, as well as products I love to use.
Well, I guess I've not been posting much due to my lack of picture-taking lately. I have been busy making Christmas goodies however and here are the latest little boxes I've learned to make & YES, another new favorite!!! I got the instructions from Cricut chick's page. Her tutorial is on video for those who really need to see how this is made, but seriously, it's probably the easiest thing you'll ever make. So give it a try!! I didn't use elastic on my boxes since I didn't have any handy, and I really needed my sweatpants to last me at least one more winter, so I wasn't about to rip those up. A huge thank you goes out to Cricut chick for posting her versions of these!!
Well here it is, my first Advent Calendar! I got the directions from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon, and although I couldn't get it to look perfect, my kids were happy with it (free candy every day for 24 days??-they better be happy!). So I did my job!
The paper was from DCWV, I picked it because it matched our décor and the Santa and sleigh were from the Christmas cart. The numbers were cut at 1" from the Plantin Schoolbook cart, and I made Santa's gift bag & will be adding it also.
A couple of things I learn every time I try one of Kathy's projects are that I am not good at handling a glue gun-no matter what! And, boy can I improvise!! Hey, it's a gift, and I intend to use it. Poor santa looks perplexed, he doesn't know whether to title this list as Nice or Completely Naughty! Enjoy...
