Hi! Thanks for making it over here. I'll use this blog as a way to keep track of the handmade, homemade gifts that Maddie and I have been busy making. That means that if you're a family member, be forewarned that one of these may be for you!
This first one is a gift for Grandma. I typed up some interview questions and then Maddie answered them. I'm in love with these, just because you really never know what answer she'll come up with!
Afterwards, she colored it and then requested to add some stickers.
Now, this part was mommy-made! When I saw this on Family Fun, I knew I had to try it. I make wire wrap bracelets (when the mood strikes me) and so I had all the necessary materials. There are good directions here; I altered ours a bit, using black and silver wire and a big heart cookie cutter. I strung a ribbon through it, which will serve as an ornament holder for when it is hung on Grandma's tree.
Then, we folded up the completed and decorated interview questions and slipped it inside! The wrapped wire is thin enough that the interview can be easily slipped in and out. I added a silver bow and it's an ornament and gift, ready to go!
