Personalizing Stockings

This is a great idea to show someone your love for them in a simple way. Personalize a stocking for them then fill it with all kinds of goodies. I found an easy way to personalize a stocking without having to pay for the embroidering. Using scrapbooking stickers has proved to be durable, easy and cheap! Use this great and easy idea to spread your Christmas cheer!

Personalizing Stockings How TO:

Buy a plain stocking
Buy scrapbooking alphabet letters and decorations

But them all together and see their face light up when they see a specially made gift for them.
Cost per stocking: Less than $10.

Merry Christmas

Spreading Christmas Joy

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I wanted to make something that I could spread some Christmas joy in my neighborhood. I decided to make chocolate boxes for my neighbors, who doesnt like chocolate, right? This is a fun, quick and inexpensive way to show your neighbors that you care and to wish them a Merry Christmas. 

How To: 
-wedding favor boxes: I used these, they come in a variety of colors and styles.
-chocolate: one large box of chocolates can be split into many small ones.
-tags: cardstock paper, hole punch and a self adhesive hole reinforcer
-ribbon: knot it at the hole
-seasonal tissue paper (optional): place on the inside to protect the chocolate.

Put it all together and this is what you get!

Enjoy this great idea. More to come soon.
love, jane
