Handmade Holidays Blog Hop 2011

Welcome to the Handmade Holidays Blog Hop!!!



Calling all crafters! We’ve gathered designers from some of our favorite manufacturers to show you ways to create something from the heart this holiday season. This 3 day Hop includes over 60 stops with inspiration brimming from every corner. Explore thoughtful and frugal handmade gifts you could make for the holidays, all in one place on this Hop!

To sweeten the Hop, we’re offering a gift for you! For every comment you leave on the blogs in the Hop, you’ll be entered to win a prize pack from one of the participating manufacturer sponsors! Receive extra entries by doing the following, and then coming back here to leave a comment to let us know what you did:


I've created an ornament that can be used as a tree decoration, a gift tag, or even an embellishment for a card. I stamped and die cut 6 ornament shapes and scored them down the center with my Scor-Pal. Using Blossom twine from The Twinery, I created a tassel to embellish my ornament. I also die cut a small Sizzix label shape twice and stamped a small sentiment on it--I adhered the two labels to each other to embellish the top of my ornament. 












Visit the list of blogs below and leave a comment on each by Nov 7, 2011 at 11:59 PM PST. Each day we will be sharing a brand new list of blogs with brand new projects for you to explore, be inspired by, and create from!
