Fast, Fun & Pretty! Glitter Decoupage Ornament KitsBy
Yay! The Glitter Decoupage Ornament Kits are ready to ship out. I’m so excited. They come in three great colors choices, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Please watch the how-to video at the end of this blog post, because it lets you see if it’s something you’d like to try before buying. No risk!
A Perfect Holiday Project for a Creative Woman with NO TIME to Make!
If you’d really like to make a few gifts this holiday season, but are now worried you’re too crunched for time–take heart! This project is the perfect solution. Fast, fun and super easy, you can make these in an afternoon.
This is another great small gift idea like the bookmarks I wrote about the other day. They don’t take long to make, they look super pretty, and they’re something the recipient will enjoy every year when they decorate their tree.
This is actually even easier than the bookmarks idea, because the kit has everything you need to get started–no thinking or planning required!
Perfect as a special little something for co-workers, great as teacher gifts because your kids can make them with you, and so nice as that extra surprise tied to a gift bag or bow that makes a gift so much more touching, because you made it.
I’ve taught a lot of different techniques in my day, and glitter decoupage is one of the most popular, I think because it’s easy, relaxing and meditative, and there’s really no way to screw it up. You’re pretty much guaranteed an attractive result without having to work hard for it. That’s a nice change.
This kit is also a great way to give yourself a creative treat as well, because making things feels good. When we’re pressed for time, it’s hard to give ourselves that feel-good making time without a “good reason.” Making something as a gift is that good reason.
It’s also a really nice way to have a creative experience with someone else:
invite your best friend over (who you practically never get to see) drink a glass of wine together, make ornaments and talk–all the while getting some holiday shopping making taken care of at the same time! You can’t ask for more than that!
Great for Ornament Parties
Speaking of socializing, these kits are also great for ornament parties. If you buy three “Buddy Packs” (6 ornaments per kit), I’ll send you the fourth one FREE. That’s 24 ornaments at 4.50 an ornament. What a steal deal.
Could be a cool different thing to do with your book club, or to offer at your holiday party, or to suggest for an office party, so everyone doesn’t just sit with the same people that they work with everyday and talk shop, but instead mingle with folks from other departments as they make an ornament.
Nothing breaks the ice better than making something together.
Okay, so you can tell I’m excited, but I’ll stop now. Here’s the how-to video, I’d love it if you’d take a look. (If you’re reading this in an email, click here to get to the site.)
