Last minute, cheap Christmas gift/stocking stuffer

So I needed a SUPER QUICK, cheap little gift for a stocking stuffer. I decided to give Mod Podge a try. I have never used it before!! It is actually really cool. So, I used my leftover tiles from my stencil/coaster project, I bought wrapping paper from the dollar store, and ribbon from the dollar store. Then I made these!


They aren't perfect, but hey they are cute, fast, and under $5.o0! All I did was put a layer of mod podge, cut out sections of the wrapping paper I liked, and then two more layers of mod podge. Then I sprayed them with acrylic sealer and glued 4 felt circles onto the bottom. By the way, I didn't buy the pre-made felt circles that are like $5.99, I just bought a sheet of felt for $.029 at Michael's and cut circles out and glued them on! Twenty-nine cents!


I finished by tying them up with my ribbon from the dollar store. They have BEAUTIFUL Christmas ribbon right now.

  12. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thank you!

  13. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the
    ebook in it or something. I believe that you just could do with some % to
    power the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.
    An excellent read. I'll certainly be back.
