Now that you have picked up all those gifts on Black Friday, gotten most of them wrapped and you can sit down and relax. Now to plan for those holiday parties. But what about those last minute gifts? You know when that unexpected guest shows up or your brother drops by with a date. There you are scrambling to find a gift. So this year I’ve planned ahead and made up a batch of earrings for that last minute gift giving.
In my last blog I mentioned the Blue Moon Bead Tin Mixes. One look through each tin and I came up with several cute earrings and using DCWV papers I made up little holiday earring cards for them for gift giving. You can add a little personal message on each card and the gift will be so much more special because you made it with love.
For the earring cards I cut the frames from DCWV The Evergreen Stack holiday papers and using the Spellbinders Positively Me by Julianna Hudgins Framed Sentiments dies. I attached the frames using doubled sided tape and attached them to green and red card stock. Decorated the cards with ribbons, stickers.
The earrings were made using beads from the Blue Moon Beads Tin Mixes, Rum Raisin, Red Velvet, PB&J, Melon Ball, and Sour Grapes. Used head pins and eye pins and jump rings attached ear wires and hung them on each card.
Then added the earrings to each card for a ready made, last minute gift for the kids school teacher, that unexpected date that your brother brings over on Christmas Day, or thank you gift for your stylist.
A handmade gift made with love that is sure to touch the heart.
