Ah, Christmas Tree Ornaments! This is what I made for my husband's 2nd grade class for their gift from the teacher. Such an easy thing to put together and you know it will get used!

That way I can add a few more every year. I also want to make some bird mobiles using the Spellbinders 3-nested-birds set, (there's a cute one on this site:
http://stampaction.typepad.com/stamp...wers-dies.html (scroll down the page)
and will make Christmas decorations using the same die cut and Christmas BG paper/giftwrap scraps/stamped cardstock. I'm not sure if the die cut works on shrink plastic (anyone know?), but if it does then those little birds would make cute stamped keyrings. Sets of cards are also usually well received of course.
Keep the ideas coming ...!

Default Stamped scarves

I have made many of these scarves in the past few years, mostly as gifts, and they are always a hit. I buy cheap chiffon fabric, wash it, tear a strip about 12-15" wide (don't cut it - you want the fluffy edges, i.e. pull strands of the thread off the edges up to 1/4" all around), stamp as much as you like using Fabrico fabric ink, heat set by putting in the tumbledryer for awhile on hot (or iron carefully between 2 old kitchen towels or something similar), grab all your co-ordinating scraps of fibers and thin ribbon (you can knot them together if the bits aren't long enough - the knots won't show clearly when they're sewn over, and if they do they look like part of the design anyway!), cut fibers about 18-24" longer than the fabric so that you have loose bits hanging off both ends forming a fringe, bunch 3 or 4 different textures/colors of fibers/ribbon together, twist them together loosely, lay 7-8 bunches across the length of your fabric scarf and pin in a few places to hold in place while you sew. Zigzag sew down the bunches of fibers, spacing the bunches more or less evenly (see pics). When you've done one side, turn over and do the same on the other side (the sewing will be showing through so it's easier to see where to lay the fibers this time). You don't have to sew carefully over every little bit of fiber/ribbon - as long as there's enough sewing here and there to hold them in place. I also sometimes sew little charms, sequins and beads randomly onto the fibers afterwards to add a bit of sparkle. I'm terrible at describing things properly, but hope these pics of 2 of my own scarves below will explain things a bit better (or PM me if it's not clear and you want to ask a question). Anyway, they're worth the effort and are so lovely and soft and colorful for the winter.

Post #543 has information on making lip gloss with stamps from Clear Dollar Stamps. I ordered the stamps and my son made lip gloss to sell to the neighbor kids this week. You can see photos on my blog. (Sorry, I am not good at linking yet).

I used bead holders to hold the lip gloss. They are small round clear platic holders, sold in a tray of 24. Walmart had them for $6.49 and Joann's sold them for $9.99. They were the perfect size for this project. A 1 1/4 inch punch works perfect for the top design but my son chose something differentto use.

How adorable! My DD has a spa slumber party coming up and this would be a perfect craft for the girls!

Looking through the Christmas Cards and found this poster with her rendition of Altered Frapp Bottles. What was different was that she used Making Memories Paint for the lids. She said 2-3 coats and had no problems with scratching or peeling. She is bsburn99.

I have been saving my bottles for awhile now to use. Just have to find the MM paint!!

I made some of these with the painted lids last year. I used regular acrylic paint (maybe 2 coats) and then sealed it with a spray acrylic sealant because I wanted a "shiny" finish. HTH as well....

I just love your scarves. Thanks so much for sharing. I have lots of fun fibers left over from various projects that I could use for these. Now I just have to find the fabric.

Best to you!!!
I made lots of stuff last year, too. I told all of my older grandkids - The price of being a loved grandchild is you have to put up with handmade things from me!

Several of them are old enough now to appreciate handmade items and seemed to be really pleased with the things I made for them. One sweet granddaughter in her late teens said, "Oh I will take this with me to my first place and feel so loved."

Cindy, I was in Archiver's today and they had about 6 bottles of MM paint in the $1.99 area, if you have an Archiver's near you, you might want to call and see if they have any. Mary

I found the flat ceramic ornaments that can be stamped on, and some pretty ornamnet hooks. Got the boys the wooden ornaments, and some cheap markers. They can color them, tie on gifts and tags. Got material on sale, using for some holiday tablerunners, placemats.

I also found a unique looking metal bowl on the clearance aisle. A coat of spray paint will have it looking nice and shiny for the holidays. Cost me $4.00, and I may use it for a centerpiece, filling it with the clear ball ornaments that I have painted and embellished.

I am going to iron material tonight. Hope something decent is on tv tonight. lol

Okay, I've been following this thread for a couple of weeks now. I've gotten started on my cards, made my Christmas organizer, bought the organize you mess by Christmas book and started to look for Christmas gifts I might be able to make. Then I found this sewing craft on line. I laughed until tears were running down my face. Here it is. Make one, enjoy one, laugh at one.

I have not read through all the threads but this year I am revamping an idea I did several years ago.

Fill the wisk part of a kitchen wisk with Hershey's Hugs and Kisses. I wrap it in cellophane and add a big bow. Then I type and stamp a cute tag that reads "Wisking you a Merry Christmas". Hugs and Kisses, signed xxxx

I saw this idea on a website - could have been here, years ago. Now that my DD is in a new school with new teachers I can do this idea again. It is a small inexpensive gift but a very cute idea.
