Paper Flowers in a Vintage Gramophone

Sing in the New Year with this fun display of paper flowers!

Something about paper flowers in a vintage gramophone just sings to me; so, I crafted up this pretty decorative piece using a die cutting machine and flexible wire. A little vintage music paper was also used to add interest to the piece.

Happy New Year Metallic Bokeh Card & Video Tutorial

Happy New Year.... almost!  It's time to start making your New Year cards! 

When it comes to colors for new years, I tend to always think of gold, silver, and black so I knew those were the colors I wanted to use for my Happy New Years Metallic Bokeh card.

Holiday Vase

Upcycle inexpensive glass pieces found in dollar stores and/or charity shops with etched designs!


My mother-in-law often received flower arrangements and would save the containers for me. I loved this square mirror vase and etched a snowflake design on each side. It was amazingly easy using either stencils or vinyl patterns cut on a shape cutting machine.

Snow Day Survival Jar

This wintry project, my Snow Day Survival Gift Jar, would be a fun surprise for a child’s teacher, a friend that’s a teacher, or for anyone who needs a fun break from the seemingly endless winter weather these days! 

Give them the gift of some hot drinks to warm them while they watch a movie and munch on popcorn through a blustery winter day. Substitute your “filling” as needed to make a surprise for someone of any age. When they are finished with the treats inside, they’ve still got a pretty jar to hold other treasures.
