Decorate the outside of the purse with embellishments and sentiment.

Hi friends! When I designed the Let it Snow stamp set for Rubber Stamp Tapestry I knew that I wanted to be able to more with it than just snow globes, that’s why I drew ornament hangers along with the other elements in the set. A viewer who purchased the stamp set asked me if I could show her how to make an ornament so today I’ll do just that!
Watch the video to see how easy it is! As always substitute stamps you have if you don’t have what I am using. I also have some fun tips for heat embossing!

Another fun idea would be to use the globe as a frame and put a photo behind it for a photo card. I love stamps that do double duty and coming up with ideas to use with my older stuff. I hope you give some of these ideas a try and til next time happy crafting!
Hi friends! This craft will help you use up some wine corks and random beads and you will end up with a beautiful sparkly bauble that you can tie to a present, hang from the tree or use as a key chain!
It’s really easy and inexpensive. Watch the video to see how!
I am so into making ornaments this year, maybe because I am going to be in a craft fair in one week and I am desperate to make stuff to sell LOL! Or, prehaps just because it is fun;) Every year I make some sort of photo ornament for my folks and that is just what I thought of when I designed my Exploding box SVG kit:
By punching a hole in the lid and box bottom I was able to run a folded length of seam binding through he hole and make an ornament.
Best of all it only took minutes to make since I cut the SVG file with my Cricut. I decorated it with papers from K&Co (double-sided paper is perfect for this because you see both sides!) and stamps from About Art Accents.
Here is what the exploding box looked like before I decorated it:
You can buy the SVG/printable kit here. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
