Quick Handmade Christmas Gift – Jumbo Paperclip Bookmark

Here is another idea for Christmas gifts for teachers and co-workers who are readers (check out Friday’s Christmas gift post here).

Photo of Jumbo Paperclip Bookmark

This is one of those JUMBO paper clips.  I used a 2″ scalloped circle to punch out 2 circles.  You can use any shape that is big enough to cover the top of the paper clip.

The pink circle is 1.5″.  I only used one of those.  Stamp and embellish ’til your heats content.  Then place the single hoop end of the paper clip in the middle of the bottom circle.  Put a piece of double sided foam tape above and below the paper clip on the circle, right snug up against the paper clip, so it can’t wiggle.

Then put the other circle on top.  You should have a paper clip sandwich now.  If you wish add a little ribbon to your bookmark.

Upcycled Valentine Candy Box

This is an upcycled candy box that I altered and then put no calorie, no sugar, no fat treats into for a gift.  I used Delta Ceramcoat Crackle to give it a distressed vintage look.Large Upcycled Valentine Heart Candy Box

I filled the box with some scrapbooking treats.  Clothes pins, bottle caps, paper clips, laces, fibers, flowers, an array of metal embellishments just to name a few.

and of course, I decorated the back of the card because it’s often ignored and why shouldn’t we embellish the backs of cards and albums.

Strathmore Pad Mini Album

Turn this simple drawing pad into a fabulous album.  The camera really doesn’t do this album justice because of all the interactive pages.  There’s an envelope in the back for ephemera, a waterfall mini album, flip ups and flip outs.  The many different ways of folding the pages of the drawing pad lead to lots of pockets, tags, and journaling.  Lots of full size photos can be put in this album.
