{Turkey Bows}

I couldn't let Thanksgiving pass us by this year without making these adorable Turkey Bows!! 



I used THESE INSTRUCTIONS from Girly Things.  If you don't want to make them into hair bows, they could easily be adapted into a pin!

Hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

12 Days of Christmas {Day 12}

Thank you for joining me for my 12 Days of Christmas this year!  I hope you've enjoyed the ideas I've shared, and have found some inspiration for making your own handmade gifts for the holidays!!


{Day 12: Duct Tape Flower Pens}

One of the big trends lately is Duct Tape items.  My oldest daughter has an obsession with Duct Tape, and loves making stuff with it.  One of her favorite things to make is these cute Duct Tape Flower Pens.  A.dorable!


She made so many that they were literally all over the house.  So we came up with the idea of covering a soup can with Duct Tape to use as the 'vase'.  Pretty darn cute if you ask me!

A video tutorial on how to make these can be found HERE.

12 Days of Christmas {Day 11}

**Only 2 more days left!!  These last two gift ideas
were made by my 12-year-old daughter.**   

{Day 11: Soda Tab Bracelet}

My daughters love to craft (they take after their Momma!).  This summer, my oldest taught herself how to make these cute Soda Tab Bracelets. 

These would make great gifts for both boys and girls!


A tutorial can be found HERE from CraftOManiac!

12 Days of Christmas {Day 10}


{Day 10: Covered Notepad}

As I've said many times...I'm a note taker & list maker, and having cute notepads around is a must!  I love this notepad holder because it has a place for a pen!!



A tutorial for these can be found HERE from The Stamp Doc!

12 Days of Christmas {Day 9}


{Day 9: Peppermint Patty Treat Box}

Looking for an inexpensive gift idea for teachers, friends, or neighbors?  How about some treats in a custom little box?!


One bag of candy can go a long way with this treat idea!!  And the box comes together really quick too.  Double bonus in my book!

The tutorial and template for this box can be found HERE.

12 Days of Christmas {Day 8}


{Day 8: Photo Explosion Box}

If you've got a scrapbooker on your list, this would make a GREAT gift!

When the box opens, it becomes a fun little scrapbook.  It would be a perfect place to display pictures from Christmas, or any other occasion, really.  The theme possibilities are endless.

There are TONS of tutorials for these types of boxes around the web, but out of all of them, this one is my absolute favorite!  The only drawback is that it's not free.  You can buy the instructions for this box HERE from Creative Nik.

Or if you're looking for a free tutorial, try THIS ONE.

12 Days of Christmas {Day 7}


{Day 7: Christmas Treat Book}

When I was a kid, one of the gifts I looked forward to every Christmas was a Lifesaver Storybook.  My brothers, sisters, and I got one every year.  It's a tradition I've tried to carry on with my own kids.

This year, they'll be getting one that's homemade!

I took the outer wrapper off of the lifesavers and recovered them with cute scrapbook paper.


The pattern/tutorial for this box came from the 12 Weeks of Christmas Newsletter at Paper Crafter's Library.  If you'd like one of your own, all you have to do is sign up for the free newsletter on their sidebar.

Sew CuteTuesday {11.15.11}

Thank you for the kind birthday wishes last week!  It was a great day, but would have been much better if my sweet husband was home to share it with me.  He's been gone for 1 week and 2 days now for some training for his job, and won't be home until late Friday night.  I miss him, and my kiddos miss him.  It'll be wonderful to have him back!!

Also, for those of you who are following along with my 12 Days of Christmas, I'll have that post up a little bit later, so be sure to check back!

Let's see some projects that caught my eye from last week's linky party:

Isn't this Jewelry Hanger from Crafty Zoo such a clever idea?!

How cute is this Upcycled Elfin Hat from Folk Haven?!

And I L.O.V.E.D this adorable 3D Felt Pumpkin Art from Simple Serendipities!

Feel free to grab a 'Featured' button....you can find a *new* one in my menu bar!!
