Altered Chip Tube Cookie Can

I love to give homemade baked goods for my Christmas gifts, and especially cookies.  This year instead of a plate, baggie, or plastic box of cookies, I thought why not decorate a tube to put them in so they are safe from breakage, and it looks good too?!?!



Here is a video on how to make these super easy gifts!



Start by cleaning out your Pringles cans.  I used small ones, they actually make 3 sizes, I chose the middle size for this project.



Then cut the Paper House Christmas Joy scrapbook paper to fit the width for the can, for this can it was 4.5 inches.  I used the Xyron Creative station to make these sheets of paper into giant stickers so then all I had to do was wrap the paper around the tube and it stuck.  No muss no fuss!



I also added in a tag on the front on each tube from the same Paper House Christmas Joy collection.




Now add your cookies to the tubes and you have some amazing gifts to pass out to friends, teachers, neighbors, co-workers and more!!



What are you giving as a fun little homemade gift this year?

Frosted Marble Snowmen

It is so easy to make these cute little frosted snowmen with a few flat marbles, etching solution, and some paint, plus they are super fun to make too!!!



Here is a video tutorial on how to make these little cuties.



First step is to etch the flat marbles.


Just look at the difference etching the marble makes, they look frosted now!



All your then do is paint cute little faces on each of the marbles to make some snowmen.  I used DecoArt Americana paint, it worked wonderfully!


You can either leave them as fun little marble snowmen, turn them into magnets, or wrap twine around them and make them into ornaments.


They are just too cute that you have to make these with your kids!!!

Farmhouse 3D Star Framed Garland

I love finding fun ways of using my scrapbook paper to do more than just scrapbook, so I turned the paper into 3D stars and then used them in a farmhouse style home decor piece.   


Here is a video on how to make these super easy and fun decor piece!!



I started with some amazing paper from Wild Whisper and I was using papers from the Home for the Holidays collection which included plaids, antlers, and this amazing mandala paper.


I turned the papers in to some fun 3D stars that were die cut out and placed on twine.  I used my Xyron Creative Station Lite with the permanent refill to make each start sticky, and then used 3 stars together to make then 3D to stick to the twine.  So easy!!!



I wrapped the twine around the black frame and and add a thicker twine to the top to hang the piece and it is done.  So fast and easy with the help of my Xyron Creative Station Lite!




What else can you create with scrapbook paper?

Best Way to Clean Your Craft Mats!!!

I love being able to clean my craft mats and also know that it is safe, non toxic, and it works!!!  Check out how easy and well this cleaner clean two of my craft mats, on a non stick craft mat and the other my self healing clay craft mat.


Check out my video to see in real time how this cleaner works.


I started out with my non stick craft mat that my daughter and her friend got covered with acrylic paint, but really it was already really messy with a ton of mists, glue, and other crafty goo.


I let the cleaner sit for a few minutes before I took my squeegee to it and pulled of all the gunk.  Take a look now!!


I also pulled out my clay mat, this thing had so much dried clay bits, ink, paint, and other random crafty stuff stuck to it and it had not been cleaned on almost 2 years.


Check it out now!!  I let it sit the with cleaner for about an hour to let it do its thing, and wow!!!  If I put a little more elbow grease into it i could probably get ti to look like new, but I am happy with a few crafty stains on it.




So what do you need to clean now?
