Today I want to talk abut Christmas Crafting. It is time to get started.
I like to make gifts for my friends and family. A handmade gift shows love and thought.
A handmade gift shows love and thought.I now make origami gift bags, mainly for jewelry but this makes things extra special. (instructions in upcoming blog.
I often have trouble making gifts for the men in my life. This year I am making my nephews braided bracelets with Kumihimo in school colors.
One year I made some Halloween soap. I wish I still had one to showcase in a photo.
Using clear MP glycerin soap base I put a rubber super ball with an eye on it (an eyeball). This was before I knew about embeddable paper for soap so I shrink wrapped the soap and printed a label on transparencies. What made the soap even more fun was what the label said: "I saw what you did in the shower".
Don't forget that baking is a handmade and crafted gift.
In the upcoming weeks I will post a photo and instructions for the project. Please check back.
