Fabricate Friday – Crafty Gifts

Hello and welcome to today’s project.  I have a few really cute projects for you today and it’s not my usual style.  These are really specific projects to make for those people in your life that you want to share a crafty gift but not break the bank doing it.  I have 3 projects that I am sharing, and these are the treats that I am sharing with the girls at my post office who gather my mail and accept the big brown boxes from UPS for me…they deserve a treat.  I also have a few colouring teenagers that would appreciate a crafty gift that keeps on giving.  I also like having a few gifts handy just in case a need arises.

So here are the pictures to the projects I am sharing today.

Christmas Crush Day 20

Well TGIF I say.  It’s been a long week and I get a 3 day weekend.  I decided to take the day off tomorrow to observe Remembrance Day.  We have ceremonies in the morning so it I feel it will be nice to pay my respects to those who have protected me in my amazing country.  Of course we all will remember and reflect of the sacrifices that were made.  I say to anyone who is in service now and who has made sacrifices for me, Thank you.  I am humbled.

Today’s project would be an excellent one to give to someone special.  A fancy lidded box with a little tip from the Amazing Connie Stewart who thought of an amazing simple tool to help with lidded boxes.  Check out the video if you want to know more.

Christmas Crush Day 10

Hi there.  TGIF!!!  I have a really cute box to share with you today.  I am using my amazing new Specialty Designer Series Paper again.  I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff.  When I was editing the video I thought to myself that for the embellishment (bow) I could have used the new Year of Cheer Washi tape instead of the little strip of foil I used.  You will see in the video but I wanted to state it here that there could be an alternative.  Have you seen the new washi tapes yet?  They are glorious and I highly recommend that you grab some before they retire at the end of December.  I know, we all have too much washi tape but seriously…this stuff is beautiful.

I have been including a shopping link every post during this series because I have had a few people have trouble searching for my name in the online store.  I hope that by placing a one stop shopping button front and center that it helps a few people with their trouble. Did you know that the online store is open 24/7?  Yep, you can shop in your pajamas if you want.  Click the button below to head to the online store.

Here is the project for today.  I hope you give this one a try…it was a seriously quick project.
