It's time for the Baker's Dozen Studio Challenge. This is a monthly opportunity for us to share what makes our stamping studios hum. Each month we will have a fun, crafty question so we can share our favorites, some tips and tricks, stamping advice and more.
Once again, I am joining in with the Baker's Dozen team for this challenge. My guest term is up at the end of this month and I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Taylor and Jami and the whole team for the honor of playing along with you all these past two months. You are all so sweet and INSPIRING and I have enjoyed every minute. Thank you so much!
The question for October is:
Good things come in small packages! The holiday season is upon us and between Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas there are a ton of opportunities to create and give little treats, gifts, and party favors. Please show us something you'll be giving this year.
Here are two easy projects that I designed for holiday gift giving. First, I made an ornament using a circular wooden shape (found at my local craft store). I painted it with gray paint. I used the Taylored Expressions Nativity Border die as the focal point of the ornament, cutting it from black vinyl and embellishing it with a rub-on, some gems, a punched glittered felt star and some baker's twine:
This would make a great gift in itself or as a fun addition to a gift bag or tied to a package.
Next, I designed a simple gift card holder. I have a huge family and often get gift cards for the teenagers who love to shop. This is an easy way to dress up those gifts.
How fun would it be to have a small tree decorated with gift cards that are decorated in little envelopes?
Simple. Easy to mass produce.
Here are the Taylored Expressions products I used on my projects today:
