This charger was for my friend. I totally CASE'd it
from a Cricut MB member named 5 Lil Monkeys'-
Apparently she CASE'd it and added her own twist,
but she doesn't recall where she found it originally.
No twist for me! I loved this design just as it is. And my
Gypsy and transfer tape made this a pretty easy project!
This was my first attempt at glass etching- a letter E using
the Gypsy Font digital cartridge that was preloaded on my Gypsy.
I haven't etched anything else to date, but I'm
guessing that a thicker glass will produce a better etching.
The ornament glass is super thin.
I wasn't especially fond of the Hallmark Godchild
ornament this year, so I thought I would go another route
for the 3 godkids that came into town this past Summer
and went to Legoland with me and my family.
I purchased a set of 3 Lego Santa ornaments off of eBay.
I had my daughter assemble this Lego for the inside of the
ornament because this recipient is too young for Legos.
Also this ornament would act as a sample for the older 2 kids
to see what their ornament should look like
after they put their Lego together.
I personalized this ornament in red vinyl
with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.
Here is a view of the Santa Lego assembled.
Here are the 3 ornaments together ready to be put back
in the box- the fully assembled one for Avery and the other
2 for the kids that are old enough to put the Legos together.
I also added tags with a group photo from our
Summer Legoland adventure.
Bath & Body Works had cute mailboxes
with travel-sized holiday bath products in them.
I thought this was perfect for one of our young cousins.
And of course I had to personalize it!
I used the Cricut Alphalicious cartridge for her name.
Maybe she can use the mailbox to hold her valentines.
I also vinyled one of these mailboxes for my older daughter
as she admired it in the store earlier in the season.
The younger daughter got a Bath & Body works gift set
that had the bath products in a mini bath tub- so cute!
I vinyled her name on that, too, but didn't grab
a photo before she took apart the gift set. Oops!
I found these mini ornaments in the dollar section at Michael's.
My nephew plays both of these sports quite intently
so I thought this set was perfect for him.
And, yet again, I had to personalize with my
new favorite crafty medium - VINYL!
I used Plantin Schoolbook for the font cartridge.
Here is a little metal pail that I doctored with vinyl
for my adult niece. I added some Bath & Body Works
mini products- just a little gift to let her know she is thought of.
The buckle was cut using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
and the black "belt" was cut using a trimmer.I must say
that putting vinyl on something round like this was a bit tricky!
Ok, that's it for my Christmas projects. I really wanted to personalize all of my gift tags, but ran out of time. I felt really bad about it, but I think my family had a pretty good Christmas even without my personalized tags (sniff, sniff).
I am entering this post in Robin's Creative Cottage Link Up Party! Come join the linking fun! The party ends January 2nd, so pop by soon.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a very Happy New Year celebration all!!
