Day 8 – 12 Days of Christmas 2018

Welcome to Day 8 of my 12 Days of Christmas 2018

Today I bring to you easy to make music sheet gift tags, another under 30 minute idea.

Don’t worry, if you don’t have any music sheets you can download them here.  I printed the music sheets on white paper but realized it was too thin for gift tags so I glued the music sheets to card stock.  I used my Cricut Design space and uploaded an image of a gingerbread man and a Christmas tree and sized them to what I thought would make a nice size gift tag and cut them out with my Cricut die cutting machine.  You don’t need an electronic die cutting machine to make these gift tags. If you have cookie cutters you can trace them on the music sheets or draw your own designs and cut them out with scissors. I used a hole punch to make room for twine.

Cute handmade gift tags, in less than 30 minutes, now that’s a A Wandaful Thing!

It’s been a great deal of fun preparing for this event, and I can’t wait to show you all of the Wandaful Things I’ve been up to. :)

Monthly Challenge January 2018 -Repurposing Vintage Buttons Link Party

Welcome to A Wandaful Thing and my first Vintage Party of 2018.  Thanks to all who have linked up in the past. Hey, if you’re new here, welcome!  I appreciate each and every one of you who continue to come back and hang out with me. I am so impressed by all your creativity and talent that I want to share it with the world. I’m always interested to see what vintage goodies, finds and projects you all have to share but today I want to see what you have created with your vintage buttons.

I will be giving away to one lucky follower one of the things I create with my vintage buttons. Check at the end of this post to find out how you could win my vintage button creation.

I decided to use my Cricut and my Cuttlebug to help with my first creation. I got all these buttons at an auction last year so I had fun picking through them to find the ones I wanted to use.

For my first creation and the one I will be giving away, I decided to make gift tags.  I embossed some plain card-stock with my Cricut Cuttlebug and then using just my Cricut, I cut out some tags (two sizes).  I selected some buttons and glued them on the front and then attached some cotton string to the back.  I like the way they turned out.
