It's a new feature on le blogge: Cheap and Easy (crafts). These may not all really even be verifiable crafts per se, think of them more like cute ideas that are super easy to execute. Yes, that's it.
You may recall the giant bag of feathers I got from Consumer Crafts. This was my evil plan and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. I have made these clear ornaments with a wide variety of innards for the past so many years. They're endlessly fun. Almost anything looks good in these, just add a bow and a little tag and voila! Instant gifty!
Here's what you need:
Hampton Art 'be happy' stamp OR pen to write
Ranger Archival ink
Here's what you do:
Stamp or write 'be happy' on cardstock
Cut cardstock into tag and punch hole in top left corner
Remove ornament cap
Replace ornament cap
Attach tag to ornament cap with pretty ribbon
Hang on tree (or place in a jaunty snowflake gift bag for a friend or relative)
Here's what happens:
Sip some egg nog and marvel at how cheap and easy that was. Craft, rinse, repeat. Squee.
