friday creative: holiday edition #8

with christmas just around the corner, today's project is multi-tasking! you can take a simple piece of chipboard & a photo and create an ornament, a gift tag, a napkin ring, a necklace, garland...anything you want!
-chipboard (or if you don't have easy access to chipboard, try plain ol'cardboard or tagboard, like a cereal box)
-paper trimmer (or craft knife & straight edge)
-hole punch
-twine or ribbon
-optional: eyelets & sandpaper

how to:
-cut chipboard to size of photo and adhere photo to chipboard with gluestick.
-punch holes as desired (to makes into an ornament or tag) and add eyelets if desired.
-sand edges as desired.
-now add any extras! like for my ornament i add a chipboard snowflake above my photo and a little jingle bell below, all held together with my new favorite red baker's twine.
-cute and easy!

happy friday!
xo, carly
p.s. today is the last of our holiday friday creatives. i hope you've had as much fun as i have!

friday creative: holiday edition #7

today's friday creative started out as a cute little place card idea from grandiflora in lynden that i of course had to make into a photo holder because, say it with me, i'm bored with frames! by the way local people, if you haven't been to grandiflora, run over right now because they have wonderful home decor stuff and they staff is so
-jingle bell

how to:
-tie a little knot of ribbon around the top of your bell and push to the end so the bell will sit correctly when turned upside down.
-turn your jingle bell upside down and insert photo. the larger your jingle bell, the larger the photo it can support. i used a 30mm bell and it worked perfectly with a wallet sized photo.
-that's it!

happy friday!

friday creative: holiday edition #6

today's friday creative is one of my most favorite photo decor projects and i have given them as gifts to many friends & family. (i have it on good authority that they loved them!) they are super easy to make and they look adorable grouped together (i prefer threes), photo blocks!supplies:
-wooden cubes or toy blocks (look for cubes at your local craft store and specifically look for kaiser craft brand)
-glue stick (i recommend pioneer brand)
-sand paper
-cutting tools (paper trimmer or craft knife)

how to:
-crop photos to fit cube/block (and remember to measure twice and cut once).
-adhere to cube/block with glue stick and sand edges as desired.

happy friday!

p.s. another cute thing to make with alphabet blocks are little photo holders with the wire holders we made here.
