Camping Themed Gift Card Holder

For friends and family who are hard to shop for, gift cards have always been my go-to gift. Since they're flat, I always try to find different ways to make the packaging a little more fun. For this particular gift card, I decided to made a fold-out camp site to hold the card!

Christmas Tree Plush

Christmas trees are a great Christmas tradition but they can be a little dangerous when younger kids are around. I made this plush tree for my nephew who was 15 months old (now 16 months!) so he could participate in hanging ornaments and still be safe. It is about 17 inches tall and is made of fleece with felt ornaments to ensure that it's the softest it can be!

Candy Cane Sleighs

Every winter, I always give candy as part of my thank you gifts to co-workers. I usually package them in small clear plastic bags sealed with a twist tie. This past year, I decided to make candy sleighs!

Strawberry Shortbread Cookies Costume

This past Halloween, I decided to be a bag of strawberry shortbread cookies! The whole costume cost a little over $6.00 as I only needed the felt and had the rest of the materials on hand. It was my easiest costume yet and was a pretty big hit at work with the kids and staff :)
