Busy, Busy, Busy

I have been super busy getting ready to do my first craft fair. I didn't realize how much work it would be. I have to stop once in a while and remind myself that this is supposed to be fun.

The first picture here shows a gift card holder. I used my Cricut (which I love!) to cut out the ornaments. All the sides were sponged to add the look of dimension. I then used my big shot to emboss one of the bulbs and added glitter to both of them. I topped them with an 18 kt. gold leaf pen, added some bows and string and glued them all together.

I used my swiss dots cuttlebug folder to add some texture on the inside. I used my 1 1/4 inch circle and tag punches to make the slot for the gift card to slip into. These came out very nice.

Next up are very simple. I cut the flowers so I had about an inch of stem, took the top off the pen and then glued the flower stem into the pens. They turned out gorgeous!!

I purchase some blank writing journals and then went to town covering them with designer paper, glitter and flowers.

Next up is another easy project called Magic Reindeer Food. The poem reads;
Sprinkle this reindeer food outside tonight.
The moonlight will make it sparkle bright.
As the reindeer fly and roam,
This will guide them to your home.

Lastly for today ~ Aren't these the cutest little gift bags?!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is fantastic!
