It’s been a few days since the BIG event and I’ve only now got the house back in order. I think Santa regularly reads Boomdeeadda, because I got a number of things on my My Wish List. I hope you did too. Thank you Santa, you made a girl so happy!
How fun is it to open the perfect gift? Thanks Kenny & Adele 🙂
When it comes to gift giving, it can be hard to be original year after year. I just love to take a small but thoughtful gift and jazz it up. I’m no Mother Theresa, but she once said “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
Remember these? They were made for a very special friend back in October.
Admittedly, sometimes you might just like to do something quick but still pretty. This little project is just that. It’s the perfect way to use up all your little leftovers from other projects.
step 1: Gather up some complimentary scrap paper. Don’t be limited by the season, mix it up. Flowery Snow Men? Absolutely.
step 2: Get out some of your old punches. You can mix it up if you have a few, if not, that’s cool too.
step 3: Randomly punch shapes from each of your papers. Go crazy, the more the merrier
step 4: Using your sewing machine, stitch along adding paper bits ever 1/4 inch or so. No need to over think or plan. Randomness is key…star, snowman, star, snowman…that’s about it.
step 5: You’ve been sewing a full 5 minutes now, pat yourself on the back, you’re done!
Did I mention this was a quick project? You’ve created a cute and personal ribbon in a blink of an eye (well almost). Just like that, you’re gift goes from lovely to WOW. The best thing I can hear is “it’s almost too pretty to unwrap”.
