day 5 | semi-homemade gift topper

Standard

While I don’t make my own holiday cards, I do like to stamp cute things onto the backs of the sealed envelopes. This is my collection (all hero arts designs) – love the stamp/postal ones as well as that cute reindeer. Stamping envelopes will likely be an Elizabeth job this year – she’s ready for it.

Today though – what I really want to share is a quick & easy ‘semi-homemade’ gift topper idea. Grab a wooden unfinished ornament (I got a bunch from Michael’s this weekend for about 50 cents a piece!) and coat with liquid adhesive. I used multi-medium – that’s fine too! Then coat in glitter, let dry, and attach to a bow.

My gift? A plain white box. To spruce this up a bit more I stamped a snowman (as seen above in my holiday stamps for this year!) that has to and from on the back.

Bam! It’s done and it’s one of a kind. How easy was that?
