I guess everyone is busy getting things all wrapped up...literally. :-)
I love small lunch bag type sacks for gift packaging. Theses chevrons bags came from Hobby Lobby. You can add detailed embellishments, or leave them plain. I went the easy route...just made a circular tag with a deer stamps from Stampin Up and sentiment stamp from Some Odd Girl. So if you are looking for a different type of gift bag, try this idea!
I was looking through the Target dollar section and came across some baker's twine on the cutest gingerbread packaging. So I thought....I can make something like that. Since it was only a dollar, I bought one to use as an example.
I decided to make mine a little smaller. The EK Success Gingerbread punch works perfect! So here they are with the example from Target...along with the punch.
This punch is great because it also punches little bows and faces.
Complete the look by putting them in a festive bag. Now you have a great little gift!
WELCOME to our Hol-ODD-Day Hop! You should have arrived from Mary Pat Siehl's blog. If not, CLICK HERE to get to the beginning...you don't want to miss one minute of the fun!!
We are VERY happy to bring you some of our ODD gift and decor ideas. Hopefully we will inspire you to be odd and crafty for the holidays too. I have made a Christmas Tree Ornament and a waterless Snow Globe. I used the clear sets Snow Bunny and HoliDeer. Both are great for decorating your home, but would also make super fun gifts too.
Here is the Snow Globe (waterless).
...and here is the ornament.
You can find the empty ornaments/globes at most craft stores. While you are there, grab some clear acetate. You can get 12x12 sheets in the specialty paper section (with the scrapbook stuff) or large poster board size sheets in the art section. Stamp your image onto the acetate with "StazOn" ink. Then paint the back side of the image for a cleaner look. You can use craft paint or paint pens. So how do you get it in there? Just cut it in a circle shape, roll it up, push it into the ornament and let it unroll. Finish up by adding fake snow.
Isha Gupta's blog is the next stop for you. So grab a cuppa cocoa, turn up the Christmas tunes, and take your time hopping around!! There are some random thingies to be won here and there, but I can’t tell you exactly where! You'll have to make sure to visit all of the blogs below and leave some love at each stop.
Remember to leave your comments between now and Sunday, December 15th and we’ll have some winners to announce on Monday, the 16th! Be sure to check back at the Some Odd Girl blog all week...there may some extra fun and prizes going on there too.
You never know what those ODD elves will be up to!
It is DECEMBER already! WHAT?!? How did that happen??? LOL!
We have a new challenge going on at Some Odd Girl this month. We are challenging you to make your own pattern background. You can use washi, paint, stencils...anything. So create something Odd and link up!!
To make my pattern background, I stamped the gingerbread people using white ink on white paper. Then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. After that I inked the paper with brown ink. I covered the entire tag with a sheet of velum to give it a frosted look.
What will you come up with? Need more ideas? Check out the Some Odd Girl blog and take a look at the other Odd Girl's designs.
