I've just realised that Valentine's Day is creeping up and I've done absolutely nothing. What a romantic I am!
Anyway given that I am so hopelessly disorganised (read: busy) I thought I'd share a couple of quick ideas with you to help you (and me) get the creative juices flowing. We've still got a couple of days to go ...
In store at Sew Crafty Goodness we have a number of great items for doing it yourself gift wrapping. These pretty gift bags and tags are available and of course the ever-popular washi tape is a must to finish off any project.
If you have a spare hour or so you can easily make a bunch of little knitted owls. Full instructions will be coming to our tutorials.
It is so easy to make the simplest little gift look extra pretty and you don't need expensive materials. We created this look using newspaper, a paper doily, paper straws and a pom pom flower made from a red serviette. You will find full instructions at our tutorials. We sell paper straws in our party supply section of our Sew Crafty Goodness shop.
Clay gift tags are the easiest
little projects to make and great fun for the kids. Just use air drying
white clay from the $2.00 shop, roll out with a rolling pin to about
3mm, stamp with anything you can get your hands on and cut out with the
top of a glass. Let dry, sand the edges with an emery board and attach
to a gift with a length of baker's twine. Voila!
For full instructions have a look at our blog post on Clay Tags and check our tutorials.
Got some scrapbooking paper lying around - if you're anything like me I've hoarded forests over the years. I do a lot of my scrapbooking nowadays digitally so I'm always on the look out for ways to use my extra supplies of paper and card. Very simple little shipping gift tags can be cut out with a hole punched in the top and some stamping on the back for your message. Thread with a length of baker's twine from our store.
Another fun project for the kiddlies - magnets!! We used cabochon glass pebbles from the jewellery making supply section of our shop and washi or deco tape for this project. So quick and easy to make a whole bunch of these little cuties. Full tutorial for this project can be found in our projects section.
Enjoy your day on the 14th February ❤
