Here are a couple more easy handmade Christmas gifts.
The first is an altered artists’ canvas. It’s 5 inches by 5 inches. All I did was mod podge the background paper on and then glitter a snowflake that I cut out with my Sizzix machine and glued that on. I finished the edges with some pretty ribbon.
It makes a lovely wall hanging (or shelf sitter) for Christmas!
The second project I have today started out as something completely different. I was going to make wooden signs that said, “Joy to the World.” And my friend was nice enough to cut out the letters for me on her Cricut. Well, as my projects often do, it evolved and become unrecognizable from what I first set out to do.
The plate is about 9 inches square. I found it for a couple dollars at Old Time Pottery. Wal-Mart has them for about $10. Then I mod-podged a snowflake (I’m getting a lot of mileage out of that snowflake Sizzix Die) and the word “Joy” to the plate. My y is a little crooked but I love the plate nonetheless.
