Handmade Gift Ideas

It's definitely that time of year, everyone gets busy and shops.
I love giving handmade gifts but finding the right handmade gift that will
be appreciated is not always easy. 

Sometimes it is nice to go simple and sweet. This gift was for my friends
little boy, I thought as he learned his letters and names that he would
enjoy a book that has his family names with photos. 
I made sure to use very strong adhesive and double checked every corner. 
You know Clear Scraps albums are not flimsy in any way so I knew with care
it would stand up to a 2 yr olds shenanigans. 
For this book I used the Clear Scraps Cassy Mixable Album.
Sturdy and easy to flip the pages. 
I used big bold letters and DCVW papers. 
I also used the Clear Scraps Mascils, with Gold Krylon spray paint. 
I love these mascils. 
I included the family dog of course. 
Hopefully it's a keepsake he can use years from now. 
Stay tuned this week for a sewing tutorial. Or maybe it's a what not to do tutorial?? LOL
Anyways happy Monday and Merry Christmas friends.
