Want to Make Some FUN Christmas or Holiday Items?

Nothing says lovin' like hand made Christmas gifts, decorations, cards and ornaments. Try some of these attractive and colorful holiday projects to bring joy into your celebrations.

On this page I show a selection of gifts that I have designed myself and made. Most are made with paper.

I invite you to peruse this collection of cards, gift tags, gift boxes, mini albums and journals, calendars and more.

If you see something you like, I hope you will go ahead and make one of your own -- possibly altering it to make it uniquely yours.

Make This Adorable Drummer Boy Holiday Card

he's all a-glitter with gold embossing, glitter and bling

This Drummer Boy card is made with the Drummer Boy stamp from Holly Berry House. Because he's made 3-D with mounting tape, this little guy really stands out from the crowd. Made from several colors of rich cardstock, heat embossed with gold embossing powder, and oh-so-fine with two colors of strategically added microfine glitter, he'll be the favorite card of any kid that receives him -- regardless of age!

Penguin Poop: A Kid Pleaser

Don't tell anybody its really candy

You simply fill a few freezer bags with candy and tie with a twist tie.

Make your Penguin Poop Tag by cutting rectangles of card stock, add a colorful image of a penguin, plus the poem below, and tie with fiber.

Here is the poem:

"I caught a little penguin

with a rope tied in a loop.

I must have really scared him

'caus he made this penguin poop."

Hockey Puck Boxes

For your little or not-so-little hockey fan

These hockey puck boxes get rave reviews from the young hockey fans on your list. They're so fast and easy to make you'll probably make several and spread the bounty come time to stuff stockings.

You get small round paper mache boxes at Michaels or at similar stores. Paint them black, add a small skate, also sold at craft stores, and decorate with hockey stickers.

If you want to customize, think in terms of adding a photograph or using red alphabet stickers to spell out the name of the favorite team or MVP.

Video Demo of a Clipboard Mini Album

Ste by step, make this colorful and easy mini photo album.

You start with a clipboard. Perhaps you can find one at the Dollar Store, or at any store where office supplies and school supplies are sold.

You will need some appropriately themed papers, some cutting tools, adhesive and embellishments.

Add some photos and its a great gift for grandparents or for teacher.
