As I mentioned in my post about our Living Better group meet up for October, Sandra brought in some great easy ideas for crafting in the lead up to Christmas.
Here is a tutorial for stamping on candles to give you some ideas.
You can watch a tutorial here for making the box in a bag and once you get the idea of the technique then you can personalise in your own way.
Making cards is a creative past time and is also a great activity to get the children involved in too.
This gorgeous hanging ornament was made using glitter card stock and running it through one of those cutting machines (like a Bigshot or a Cuttlebug) using a cutting template and then assembling and finishing off with a crystal in the middle.
The best way (and the cheapest) to do this is share resources. Get a group of paper crafting friends together and share equipment, stamps, card stock and templates and make an afternoon of it.
Thanks Sandra for the beautiful images (I always get so caught up in our discussions and forget to take photos) and bringing along these ideas for everyone.
