Handmade Gifts

Despite all the craziness I managed to create a few homemade treasures for gifts this year. Here are a 2 of the goodies I made and gave this Christmas:

The first is for a friend who adores Index Cards - she is a little obsessed with them by her own confession;

The gift included 2 sets of Index Cards and an old File Box that I painted red and embellished with Magnets I made from Punch-Out Tags that came in a Scrapbook Paper Kit, labels that I printed on Craft Paper and Magnet Tape.

One set of index cards that I bought had a little paper "holder," which I used as a template to create my own "holders" out of coordinating scrapbook papers. I thought they all came out lovely and best of all, she thought so too! I love to give gifts that are so very personal, only the person you are giving them too would truly "get it."

The second gift was a small shadow box I made for a friend who loves the stage and who also had a slight obsession herself this holiday - yarn and pom poms.

This is my little tribute to her talents, her passion and to her dedication to her work, her art.

It was my first attempt at creating a Shadow Box and I was pretty pleased with the result!
