Need a last minute gift idea?

Make something handmade with a little help from your scrap stash!

Last week I was flipping through a recent copy of Simply Handmade and saw some great gift ideas! I love giving handmade gifts and these were simple enough to get them all done in one day- and my two year old helped! Hee!

Can you tell that the reindeer is created with Natalie's foot print and hands? She was so proud! These only took a few minutes to put together and would be a great gift for grandparents or a teacher.

Here is another gift I'm giving this year that was inspired by a project I found in the same magazine:

My dad and step-mom just bought their first house together so I thought it would be a perfect little frame for them. I hand stitched the writing on the bottom but you could use letter stickers, stamps, or a computer font for the same look.

Hope you are all enjoying this last week before Christmas!

That reindeer picture is very cute - think that'll be a project for me and my toddler this afternoon!
