Owl I want is some DIY Artwork!

Make this easy wall art owl art by using a die-cutting tool to cut multiples of your favourite design in coordinating papers. Leftover stickers that you love also will work. 

Simply fill the 4x6-inch mat openings in a frame. 
To make it the perfect gift, choose a theme and colour palette that suits your recipient. 

If you do not have a Die Cutting tool,your local scrapbooking store may have a machine available for use. If all else fails, cut yourself out a template and trace onto scrapbook paper, bust out the exact knife and scissors.

A DIY Christmas Part 1

Its that time of year again. The "how am I going to afford this Christmas Season?" 
Part 1 is all about creating that festive cheer, with a few less bucks and some creative license. 

This cute little bunny ornament was originally created for Easter, but would make a cute addition to the Christmas tree. Or you could use the same procedure with different accessories (think top hat and felt "buttons") to create snowmen for your tree or mantle. Complete instructions at: Crafty Journal. 


Gorgeous! I am in love with this Feather tree: J'adore! Linda at the French Hen's Nest makes it look easy peasy to put together too! Warm up that hot glue gun, you're gonna need it :)


What's better than Free and Easy? Not much in my opinion! 
Kerryanne at Shabby Art Boutique offers a free download sheet with 6 vintage designs for holiday tags. Click. Print. Cut. Repeat.


When it comes to Giant Wood Tag: Bigger is Better! These are a nice alternative to the door wreath (no sparkles and pieces of tree all over the front porch) Jaime at That's my Letter provides a detailed step by step tutorial on her blog to show how these beauties are created.
