Cozy Christmas – Half Sheet Wonder!


, , ,

My first Christmas cards of the year are based on a One Sheet Wonder tutorial from ChicnScratch.  However, my cards are a Half Sheet Wonder!  I’ve used one sheet of 6″ x 12″ Home for Christmas designer series paper and made 9 cards.  I just loved the design – so simple and bold!

Minions Notepads


, , , ,

Here’s a fun little craft project for the kids.  My inspiration was a YouTube channel that my two young daughters are crazy about called Charli’s Crafty Kitchen.  In one of the videos, Charli was making Minion Push Pops and all I could think about was translating the idea into a card or 3D craft project!

These notepads will make a great Christmas gift for my daughter’s kinder friends.  The best bit is they’re really easy to make – so she can help me!

The notepads I picked up from my local two dollar store in a pack of 10 and they measure 5″x 3″.

Pootles has a great video tutorial on how to make the notepad covers here.  I’ve included pictures below to show you how I created my Minion design:
