Anyone scrambling for just one more gift idea? Here are a few gifts we made at my Craft Fair Treasures Class. The first two shown are ideas that I copied from other talented demonstrators. Anita Haines had some amazingly adorable creations on her blog. But I just HAD to have my stampers make this stinkin' cute Santa-tizer gift. Oh! And she has a free tutorial for it, too!...
It definitely was a favorite! Vicki, Denise and Julie will be giving these as gifts this year for sure.
Kindra Delaney was the creative talent behind this next idea...
This Build a Snowman Olaf Kit would be quick and easy to pull together for kids of all ages with just the right punches and a visit to the grocery store. Here is what she shared on Facebook.
For MY Olaf edibles I used the giant marshmallows, pretzel sticks, candy eyes from the cake decorating store, pumpkin flavored candy chips (because I had those and couldn't find candy corn), and a packet of hot cocoa mix.
For the Olaf, I used the following punches: Extra-large Oval, Large Oval, 1/2" Circle (to form a moon shape then rounded out to form the carrot nose), Word Window (for the tongue), Owl Builder (for the eyes), and then just free-form cut the stick hair. I found the Walt Disney Script font for free online.
This 3rd idea would be perfect for any adult who uses magnets. The glitter makes it a little more feminine, but you could leave that off if needing a more masculine gift.
We took tumbled tiles from the hardware store and stamped on them with the Ornamental Pine stamp set and ink from the Blendabilities Markers. You have to be fast at stamping though so the ink can get transferred fully.
- Ornamental Pine stamp set (wood-mount or clear-mount)
- Crumb Cake Blendabilities
- Old Olive Blendabilities
The last gift we made I shared on my blog a few weeks ago. Click here to see close-up photos of these adorable snowmen candies in a snowman container.
There was a little drawing involved, but with some math tips the mouths on our snowman containers turned out great! Way to go, Sue!
Love the little snowman candies, Tim and Brenda! Thanks for modeling for the photo.
I hope you all are done getting all your gifts together for Christmas. If not, then I hope these 4 ideas were of some help or inspiration to you!
