Yay!!! I am so excited to be ’decking the halls’! I love Christmas and I love giving gifts. I am always trying to come up with cute and fun Christmas gift ideas for teachers and neighbors. I don’t want to spend a lot and I want them to be something that they can use. This year, I decided to make some little Christmas magnets and put them in some darling little tins for my kids teachers.
I used Altoids tins. I found them at Smith’s grocery store. I had a really hard finding them for some reason. Altoids tins are the best, you can do so many fun things with them.
I made some cute, Christmasy magnets. I used the December Flair kit by Crystal Wilkerson. Her Christmas kits are so adorable, I love using them! I am LOVING the colors in this holiday kit, I think it is so fun because it really doesn’t have a lot of the typical ‘Christmas colors’. It is different and the cutest.
I digiscrapped a little tag for the top and stuck it on with some glue dots. To make my tags, I used the December Holiday kit by Crystal Wilkerson. So, so easy and they turned out fabulous!
If you are new to making magnets, check out Jamie’s awesome magnet making tutorial. They are really easy and fun to make.
Another fun gift that I made this year is this framed mini Christmas word art. I got the frame at Micheals for $1.00. It is 8″x8″. I painted it and sanded it a little to make it look worn. Then I added my simple mini Christmas word art that I made. The opening in the frame is 3.5″x3.5″, so that is what I sized my word art.
As a little gift to you, here are the free downloads. There is one in green and one in blue. If you would like to make your own framed mini Christmas word art, right click on the image and save.
Happy gift-giving everyone!!!
