At the end of last year I found a facebook group challenge to work on and post a Christmas gift every week. And magically by December you would be well on your way to be ready for Christmas.
So I challenged myself to work on “something” for Christmas each week of the year. It could be cards, gift tags, gifts, decorations. I couldn’t be limited to just a gift as I certainly don’t need that many gifts.
I made a few Christmas cards.
Paper cards and fabric postcards. I saw the washi tape tree idea on Pinterest. What a fun card that was to make.
I wondered how the lettering would come out by cutting it with die cutting letters. Worked great. They are pretty narrow.
Also a die cut “jingle all the way”. Embossed stamping for the paper cards.
I managed to create a few gift tags.
If my local kids don’t take them for keepsakes, I take them back and use them again the next year(s). After all the tedious work, it’s great to see them again and tie them to a gift the next year.
I also made four very cute money gift envelopes. But they were sealed in their shipping boxes before I remembered to take a photo of them.
I turned the challenge to a personal challenge as I can’t post stuff on facebook that I don’t want people to see ahead of time. I managed to make something for Christmas during 26 weeks out of the 52 week year.
Here’s how November went for my friends who enjoy seeing my journaling calendars.
I wish all my friends and followers a very Merry Christmas
and a best ever New Year!
