Handmade Christmas Gifts 2012

I didn't end up making as many gifts this year as in the past.  This year I hope to make more.  That was also the plan for this year, it just didn't turn out that way.  :)

Ceramic Tile Coasters

These coasters were fun and very easy to make. I used this tutorial.

 I made these for a friend with his company logo (Connect! Madison County)

 These were for my son.  
I bought the paper at Hobby Lobby

 I made 2 sets of the paw for my dad and his wife and the other for a friend and his wife.
The background paper was purchased at Hobby Lobby.  For the paw print I used the large heart punch and small oval punch from Stampin' Up! with Chocolate Chip card stock. 

 I made these for my oldest daughter and her finance'.  They are going to decorate part of their new house in Americana.  I used the large star punch from Stampin' Up! (discontinued) with Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I purchased the background paper at Hobby Lobby.

I made these for my youngest daughter and her finance'
This background paper also came from Hobby Lobby.  I stamped "Touchdown" (stamp set is discontinued) in Chocolate Chip ink onto  white card stock and adhered it to a piece of chocolate chip card stock.  

Dry Erase Frames

I made these for my daughters.  These are also very quick and easy to make.  I found the basic idea on Pinterest from this website.  I used scrapbook paper that looks like notebook paper.  I used my Big Shot die cut machine to make the word "Notes".  I decorated the frames, then added magnets to the back.  I also made each of them matching magnets (I forgot to include them in the top picture).

I used unfinished wooden stars and sponged them with Stampin' Up! inks Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler.  

M&M Flannel Rag Blanket

I made this for my youngest granddaughter who is 4 years old.  My craft room is decorated in M&M's and she calls them "nimmy nimmies".  It has 25 - 9" squares 
I've had the M&M flannel for years. 

Re-usable Swiffer Dusters

These were also very quick and easy.  I used this tutorial.  

Baby Doll Wipes

These took about 10 minutes to make from this tutorial
A little fleece and a little flannel......

If you have any questions, please let me know.
