Snowy Scene....

 So I have been doing random crafty projects instead of getting my Christmas cards done.  Procrastination at its finest.  I  don't know why I am not into the Christmas cards, but so far they aren't getting done.

Instead a couple of cute things I came up with on my own did happen.  This cute snowy scene being one of them.  

My hubby got something in this cute little tin.  After he used up the product, he gave it to me saying this looked like something I would store something in or make something.  He was right.  😜  Do you have friends/loved ones that save this type of thing for you because they know you craft?  Isn't it the best feeling when they do?  

So the inspiration came for this once I bought the wooden trees out of the Target dollar spot.  I thought wouldn't it be cool to make a scene in this container?  The trees and the snowflake sequins I also got out of the Target dollar spot really made this come together.  I printed out the background from my printer and had the Cricut cut out the perfect 2 1/2 inch circle.  I then used some shapes from Design Space along with the slice/weld application to create the house with snow banks.  The best part is I did this and it fit the container on the first try!  That like never happens.  Of course, measuring first is what made that work.  I hate measuring...I am more of a wing it type of person.


It turned out pretty good right?  I did add a magnet to the back of this to hang on my refrigerator because I wanted to be able to see it all season.

Now my next project was inspired by the multiple cool projects I see Brittnay Pochick.  Here is where you can see her channel.  She makes the coolest badge holders for her craft fairs.  I saw the ones from Halloween and thought they were super cute.  Being a nurse you can never have too many badge holders.  So since I had a package of plain ones I got from the dollar tree last year I decided to bling one up for the Holiday.

 Here is the one i completed last night.  I used some gem ribbon from Dollar Tree in gold.  I glued that around the outside edge.  I then used some of those wooden trees and a snowflake sequin again and glued that to the front.  Very simple and easy to make.  I plan on wearing this throughout the holiday season.  

What are you up to this Holiday crafting season?
