Easy Gifts for the Holidays
by ellen hutson
Thank you 7gypsies for the privilege of sharing these projects with your readers! With the holiday season upon us I thought it would be fun to share several ideas that I think would make perfect gifts.
The first project is this fun little "message center!" Using the solo shadowbox together with the wonderful display trims it was quick and easy to create this fun accessory for my home.
displaying Santa photos is something we love to do at our house - the letterpress tray is perfect for showcasing these special photos.
the optical lens can be turned into a fabulous customized ornament. what a wonderful gift this would be for a grandparent! simply create a custom rub-on of your child's silhouette, add a date and hang on their tree!
