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. :)

Day 10: Holiday “Dough”

Welcome to Day 10 of my 12 Days of Christmas

I have  two fabulous  20 “something” nieces on my Christmas gift list. I use to find it oh so hard to buy for them. A few years ago I decided cash was the answer and this way they could buy something they really wanted.

My mission was then to find unique ways to give these gifts of money. Something a bit more fun than just money in a card.  I did what most folks do when they are looking for unique and interesting ideas, I started searching the internet.

I found a really cute idea over at  With All My Heart & Soul called Holiday Dough!

As soon as I read the poem, I knew this was the money gift idea I wanted to use.

It is simple and easy to throw together.  You need, well, money, ribbon, a clear bag, some card stock to print your topper and a stapler to attach it, that’s it!  A free download of the topper is available to you at the end of the post.
