Christmas Mini Album Ornament

Every Year I have made my kids a Christmas Ornament with their picture.  Well they are all grown up and not as interested in having their adult pictures plastered all over my tree.  This year i decided to do a  mini album that could hold the entire families pictures a little more tastefully.  The mini book is made out of 12" x 6" card stock.  It is the same concept as one sheet mini album (lots of tutorials on You Tube).  I used 1/2 sheet of paper to make it lighter.  The book is 3" x 3". 

The cover was stamped with Santa's list stamp set from stampin up.  I printed the 2013 on my computer and made a simple bakers twine and brad closure.  I put a loop of ribbon at the top so it can easily be hung on the Christmas Tree. 

I love how they turned out and made several for my family and friends. 

Inside are 8 pages to put pictures, write memories, or anything else I can think of. 

Happy Halloween

Santa Christmas Ornament

I found these glitter ornaments at big lots 14 for $4.00.  I used my Stampin up Santa's List and stamped the image in Brown ink.  I added fine glitter to the hat and cuffs.  I  mounted it on a black card stock circle.  Super easy but great results. 

Tomorrow I will show you another project made with this stamp set.

Halloween Treat Bags

Ive seen lots of paper bag treat bags all over the internet so I decided to come up with my own halloween version. I can't remember exactly where I first saw the idea.  The original Idea had ribbon handles but I didn't like how loose they were.  I made my handles out of a 6" X 1' piece of paper scored at 1/2" and taped together.  It is really sturdy.  I filled each bag with candy treats and will give them to my customers next week.  I really hope they like them.

I used different papers I got at Tuesday morning

The paper is just covering a brown paper bag inside.

On the back I put my message and our Logo.
