Never one to be left out of ‘making things’ Suz’s daughter Phoebe came up with this gorgeous artwork to give to her teacher this year. She used a mixture of Glimmer Mists and Luminarte Twinkling H2O’s to create the christmas tree painting, and covered the Pink Paislee frame in white gesso and white Glimmer Mist Chalkboard.
The beauty of this kind of present is that when Christmas is over Mrs S can just take the tree picture out of the gorgeous Pink Paislee frame and use it for something else. We can totally imagine a teacher, family friend or grandparent appreciating this idea.
These cute little canvas pouches are a fun and simple gift that kids can make with just a little help (if they are younger). With the Prima canvas sheets easily cut into a circle, trim of your choice can be threaded through holes punched evenly around the edge. When pulled tight, a pouch is created and can be decorated however the child likes!
Websters Pages tinsel trim and Tim Holtz baubles have been used to embellish these example pouches.
Danielle’s eldest two kids - aged 6 and 8 - created these sleep masks to give to their teachers and aides as a thank you gift this year. They decided that they deserved a long nap after a year of teaching! After the shape was cut out (that bit is mum's job!), Sienna and Ash chose the Websters Pages trims they wanted to embellish with. While Danielle did thread the needles, the kids did all the stitching themselves. A cute, easy gift that could be customised with any range of trim.
Tacha Bruecher shows us that the Basic Grey Samplers aren't just for the grown-ups! Tacha's young daughter Amelie drew the gorgeous little sketches inside the circles on this sampler. Tacha says "What makes it more special for me is that each of her little pictures is something that means something to her. There is a picture of our family, of our house, of the tree in our garden, of a squirrel and even of our cat!" Here is more information about how Amelie created this masterpiece.
Something so special would make the perfect Christmas gift idea for a grandparent or special friend of the family. Thank you for inspiring us Tacha.
