Christmas Gift Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

Today is the Christmas Gift blog hop with Becka from Creations with Becka (link to my blog- creationswithbecka.blogspot.com).  If you came from Becka's Blog then you are in the right place, if you just stopped by please start at the beginning of the hop at Creations With Becka.
Today is going to be a fun day of great ideas for homemade Christmas gifts for the special people in your lives, like family, friends, co-workers and teachers.   We thought it would be a great idea since times are rough to showcase all the different presents you can make at home and for little money. Plus, I think homemade presents are the best, because they really show how much you care and how much thought and effort you put into them.

Grandparents love their Grandkids, and kids love Christmas ornaments (At least mine do!), so I thought I would be great to make my Mother an ornament with my Girl's picture in it!

I bought a pack of glass ornaments from Hobby Lobby and printed out a photo of my girls.  I rolled up the photo and stuck it inside the ornament (Using a little adhesive on the corner to make it stick).  Then I sprayed a little adhesive spray inside the ornament and sprinkled in some glitter and shook it around.  (Thanks Sarah Hamer for the great idea!)  I then took some 3 Girl JAM Crinkle Ribbon and attached it at the top.  I also made the box by taking 2 pieces of 12"x11" piece of cardstock (one for the bottom and one for the top) and scored them at 3" and 9" and turned it and scored again at 3" and 9", taped the edges together and covered it in pretty cardstock.  The flower was cut from the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge (my favorite!).
Easy Peasy!!
I have some blog candy for one lucky follower.
