I love the holidays! Some of my favorite memories revolve around making things, whether it was baking dozens of Christmas cookies with my Mom or the annual family “Make It” gift exchange. The joy of creating something to give to others is just such a special part of the season for me. And this year especially I think we can all do with a lot more joy! That’s why I was so excited to partner with my friend and fellow Stampin’ Up Demonstrator Vicki Hevener at Stamp with Vicki. Over the last week, Vicki and I have created a series of videos showing some fun and easy projects you can create with your family and friends to capture that homemade holiday spirit I love!
On Day 1 I shared Stampin’ Up’s Christmas Countdown Project Kit. This kit goes together so easily and you can use it for years to come. This year, my family used the boxes to put in notes of fun things to do throughout the season. Things like bake Christmas cookies, write out Christmas cards, watch a holiday movie, or go see Christmas lights – you get the idea. You can watch my video here and order your own kit here.
Day 3 of Homemade Holidays was all about gift boxes! I demonstrated how to make a gift box from a half sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. You can see the video here. As a bonus, when you place an order of $50 or more on my website, I’ll send you the PDF tutorial for all my Homemade Holiday projects! When you make all three sizes, you can stack them up to make a fun gift box snowman. You can order all the supplies you need here!
Day 5 was all about a quick and easy gift bag and let’s face it – we need gift bags all the time not just at the holidays. This gift bag goes together in minutes and with one package of our beautiful Designer Series Paper you can make 6 gifts bags for less than $2 a bag – now that’s a great deal. Check out the video here. You can find all your supplies here.
On Day 7 I shared two projects – a cute little ornament for your tree and a little desk calendar you can make to mail to loved ones far and near. You can see the video here and order your supplies here.
I hope you’re inspired to try your hand at some of these projects. I know you’ll have fun making new memories with your loved ones! And if you would please subscribe to my YouTube Channel – every subscriber helps widen my audience exposure and would make me so happy! Whatever you celebrate my very best wishes for a Happy Holiday season and a New Year filled with joy, good health, and love.
