Crafty Christmas

Catching up from the holidays... here are a bunch of the things I created in December. Didn't want to spoil any surprises, so I had to wait to share them with you.

Soapy pops - based on the Soapylove book:

Felted sweater scraps wreath inspired by Betz White - and also beaded stars inspired by Elisalou (my son helped me with the first two, but was "done" after that, so I made the rest - same with the soap - *wink*)

More felty fun - ornaments! These were inspired by Crate & Barrel ornaments I saw in the 2008 holiday catalog - only took me a year to get around to making them!

And a few gingerbread house boxes - created with a Sizzix die and then I also made little gingerbread man tags (retired Fiskars punch and Marvy merchandise tag punch) to go with them. The soapy pops fit perfectly in these.

Ok - had to finish up Christmas before moving on to Valentines - so next up, an A Muse Valentine SNEAK PEEK - woohoo - two posts in one day - stay tuned!

Em, I have that Sizzix die, too. What did you adhere the face onto the house with? I was using adhesive spray since my Xyron isn't big enough but I didn't find it worked all that great.

Novell - I ended up using MonoAqua liquid glue and just carefully went around the face using the fine tip side of the glue. 2-way glue wasn't strong enough and MonoMulti stays tacky if you put too much on. I tried my big Xyron, but didn't rub around all the edges well enough - so it didn't work that well.
