Let's post a few new crafts

I'm working on Christmas crafts, which will probably consume me for the next few weeks and though I'm trying to post daily, I have a strong feeling that I may slip.

Here are a few things I've been working on this week.

These are wreaths I made from the DCWV Christmas Stack. You cut the 12 x 12 paper in half and then in one inch strips. Staple those strips and then hot glue them to a pre-formed Styrofoam wreath. The key to making it look good is to make sure you offset each row. If you line up the pieces then it looks weird.

This is a coaster I made using a Peachykeen stamp. I made a set of four, but it is hard to get a decent picture. These tiles are from Home Depot and are available for just 16 cents. The make nice, easy teacher gifts. You have to wash them first and use Staz-on ink. I highlight them with stickles and than spray them to set them. A nice finishing touch are those little round scratch guards that go on the bottom. I'm not sure what they are officially called.

Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment and tell me what you are working on this holiday season.
