Remember those tissues and hand sanitizers?

Pin It

I know I’m late…really late…but remember these?  I mentioned on Facebook that I had picked up some of those little hand sanitizers from Bath & Body and some cute little tissue packs from the dollar spot at Target.

And I turned them into little gifts for teachers…

And if you still need a cute tag, jump over to my Facebook page, ‘like’ me (if you haven’t already) and download this cute tag!

UPDATE:  There seems to be something amiss with the FB thingy.  It will get fixed :)  Please still go ‘like’ me on Facebook, but for now you can also download the tags here.

 

 

Christmas Countdown…a FREEBIE!

Pin It

WOO HOO!  I’m getting this up before the first of December…I feel like that’s a major accomplishment :)  I just wanted to share something that I think y’all might like!  An easy, cute, and FREE Countdown to Christmas.

Here’s what we’re making…a Countdown to Christmas frame

You’ll need…

Picture frame with the glass taken out

Decorative papers

Brad or glue

A binder or bulldog clip

24 tags with the numbers 1-24 (print them out here)

ribbons, decorations, or stickers

 

I found a frame I liked and took out both the glass and the paper insert from inside the frame.  I used the paper insert as a pattern and cut some decorative paper to the same size.  You might consider using some cardboard (I used a cereal box that I cut to fit) behind the paper for added support.  Using a brad or glue, secure a small bulldog clip to the decorative paper.  Place the paper and cardboard backing inside the frame.

Here’s the easy part…download your tag freebie.  Then print and cut out the tags.  All that’s left is to add some embellishment.  I simply stapled some ribbon scraps to my tags.  You’re ready for the countdown!  Cute, right?  I made the tags kinda plain so that it would go with just about any colors you decide to do.  And I love how they’re kinda vintage-y.

Ta-daaaaa!  Great as an early gift for neighbors, co-workers, and teachers, too.  Kids love ‘em too!

{etsy} A new shop and a giveaway! CLOSED

Pin It

Well I did it.  I’ve been talking about for a while now.  I opened an etsy shop.  I have my first item up now :)

It’s a kit designed to make your holiday cards fun and easy this year.  You’ll need photo editing software and a little bit of experience with it. Or, if you prefer, I can totally help you out with the whole thing.  Your photo goes in the template and you digitally ‘stache the photo!  Basically when its all said and done, you have a picture file you can send to any photo lab.  I made the template in the two most common sizes for holiday cards, 4×8 and 5×7.  I even added some extras, including a paper you can print for use as a family letter to include with your cards.

I want to give a set away!  Simply leave a comment on this blog post by midnight eastern time on Wednesday, November 9th.  I randomly choose a winner Thursday morning.  The giveaway will be for a set of DIY templates, plus if you need help inserting a photo and mustaches, I’ll do that too!

good luck!
