Handmade Gift Giving


I've been looking forward to sharing Kathy's project since she emailed the photos to me. It's such a great idea and so much fun that I feel sure many of you will want to create something similar for the young-at-heart in your lives.


Here's what Kathy had to say about creating this awesome hand-made gift:

For the Gingerbread set, I wanted to make a fun gift for our 3 year old niece… so printed off the gingerbread house on white paper to make it a coloring sheet. I attached magnet strips across the corners and along the edges, so that the finished coloring sheet can be attached to the refrigerator. I printed the candies (colored version) from the gingerbread house onto white paper, and traced the "snowy peaks" onto fun foam, trimmed them all, and attached magnets to the back of each. The final touch was to add sparkly Stickles to the spice drops and “snowy peaks.”

Thanks for your kind word, Beccy. When reading the write up, I noticed that I made a mistake. The snowy peaks in the photos are cut from thin white foam. I had first used white cardstock, which worked, but I switched to the white foam sheet to add more texture. I really look forward to mailing this to our sweet niece. (Actually, just realized that she is our grand-niece. I sometimes forget how old we are!)
