We’re kicking off our Keeping it Simple project and gift ideas today! The DT will be showing off their skills when it comes to keeping it simple over the next three days. The rules were to give yourself some restraints and come up with a project or holiday gift idea within those boundaries…simple, right? 🙂
Marielle made this joy picture frame in less than 15 minutes with items she had around the house! (I might need to make one of these to put on the fireplace mantle!) She used various pieces of Pebbles Chips, Ribbon and paper from the So Tweet Collection to make this fantastic project!
Using cute metal star ornaments she already had, Amy used some Mod Podge and various Pebbles papers to add a little more holiday fun to them–and it took less than 10 minutes! These would be perfect for a holiday ornament exchange!
In less than 15 minutes, Susan created this adorable gift card and box set! For the card, Susan cut paper to make a bas and then added Ribbon and a chipboard star to make the tree. For the gift card holder, Susan took a pre-made box and added paper to the front. Then she tied ribbon to the top. Super simple and perfect for little gifts!
Susan also created this super cute Christmas tree in less than 30 minutes! Instructions from Susan herself: take a premade form such as the one I got from Hobby Lobby. Tear strips of paper and dip them in gesso (or white paint). Glue to your form – working your way up. Next add chips to act as decoration and top with a chip star. There ya go! Instant tree!
I apologize for the delay in kicking off our Keeping it Simple week–can you say “technical difficulties?!” Thursday and Friday will be filled with more keeping it simple ideas–perfect for those last minute ideas! See you tomorrow!
