Handmade Holidays 2014 Blog Hop

Handmade Holidays 2014 Hop Logo Welcome to the final day of the 4th Annual Handmade Holidays Blog Hop! We hope you enjoyed the projects from the last 2 days! A few years ago we were looking online for handmade gift ideas and thought it would be great if there was a resource dedicated JUST to handmade gift ideas. Enter the Handmade Holidays hop! We've gathered over 100 of our creative blogger friends in the craft industry as well as some of our fellow product manufacturers to bring you a plethora of inspiring gift ideas you can make now to give to your friends, family, and colleagues. Pin and bookmark these ideas for this holiday season and to use throughout the year! Each day of the hop features approximately 30 gift projects and you can "hop" from one blog to another to check them all out. 

Welcome! I'd like to share my projects with you for today's lovely hop!

A few years ago, I found some vintage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle trading cards at a thrift shop. I bought them and forgot about them really. Then, I came up with the idea of making some cool jewelry out of them. I thought that would be the perfect hipster Christmas gift for one of my cool friends. I used Mod Podge and Glossy Accents to make both the earrings and the necklace. I also used jump rings and earring hooks.

I made a sweet card using Paper Smooches stamps. I thought since I was using retro TMNT cards, I'd use the sentiment "I regifted something nice for you". I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to adhere my card elements and make them pop! I also used their keepsake envelopes to place my earrings inside of the card.

I used a cool earring punch to create an earring card for display!  I don't know if I'll be able to give this set away!

I was going to make a calendar out of coasters BUT...I printed out the 2014 calendar.  So, I ended up making a small thankful list for each month.  I used Tim Holtz watercolor paper.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have fun on the hop!
