Embossed Wood Name Tags

Hello to all and Happy Holidays!

I have a quick project to share with you before the holiday season is officially over. This DIY is perfect for last minute gifts, ornaments, place settings… anything! This year I bought new stockings for the family since we have our new addition. <3 They are knit and fuzzy, but don’t exactly have a convenient place to put our names on to them. My solution? Embossed Wood Name Tags!

 Embossing is a simple but beautiful way to personalize your holiday decorations. Maybe you have some wood slice ornaments for the tree that need some sparkle, or you would like some show stopping place settings for the holiday table. With only a few supplies you can create your own personalized wood tags, and those supplies will last you for many more projects to come!

DIY Holiday Paper Gift Boxes

Hello again crafty friends!

Today I want to share these adorable DIY holiday gift boxes fashioned from, you guessed it- PAPER!

With the W R Memory Keepers 123 punch board (yes, I cheated on my Silhouette…) these came together in a snap. Also, they are as customizable as you want. I added coordinating tags to each gift box, but you could simply put a bow on it and call it a day! I’ve included a list of the supplies I used so you can give it a try! I hope this project inspires you to create your own DIY holiday paper gift boxes, because the holidays will be here and gone before you know it!

I loved making these for the holidays! My crafting time is limited as a new mommy. If I find the time to make something it better serve a purpose! These will house wonderful gifts for family, so I can check that off my never ending to do list!

DIY Donut Stenciled Workout Tank

Hello World!

This week I dabbled in stencilling and apparel craft- something new for me! With warm weather quickly approaching, I was inspired to up cycle  one of my husband’s old t-shirts into a workout tank. But let me be clear, working out is NOT something I desire to do for fun. Of course, this means that my tank had to be sassy and food related. Today I’ll share with you my process, and my Silhouette Studio file, to create my DIY Donut Stenciled Workout Tank!
