GIFT IDEAS TO INSPIRE

Glitz_December_post_Karola1

Well, Christmas is over for yet another year, but, if you are like me, it just seems to come around again way too fast. I have grand plans of making hand made cards and gifts for all my family members,but, time always runs out, and I never end up doing half of what I planned to do. So, my plan is to start now, surely if I start in January, I can get them finished by December right?. So, here are just a few more wonderful ideas from our design team girls, both for Christmas, and other occasions, in the hopes that I can get myself, and you guys motivated to start creating some beautiful handmade cards,and gifts, all ready for next year.

Elena shares some of her tips for making this wonderful wreath, ‘ I covered the wreath by wrapping some linen around a chipboard shape, I made some canvas bows, and gessoed randomly over them. I also misted the wreath with some starbust mist, which has added a pretty shimmer to it. I finished off by adding some festive, silver balls.’
