Half off all Christmas!

Christmas is less than a week away!  WhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTTT?!?!  How is it that even though Thanksgiving was early this year, basically giving us an extra WEEK between then and Christmas; that Christmas has still snuck up on me?!?!  I have not even started wrapping gift yet!  sigh.  And to further ZAP my Christmas spirit, I have to go to Costco tomorrow . . .  because I use their pharmacy for my prescriptions.  Ug!

P1370821So to give my Christmas spirit a little boost and add a bit more “JOY” to my life; I’ve decided to put all my remailing Christmas product on sale for HALF PRICE, in my booth at Stars.

Many other vendors are offering discounts on their Christmas product too.  Instead of settling for the ‘slim pickins’ left over in the big box stores, come shop at Stars for unique vintage and upcycled gifts that they will really LOVE!

Gift box re-cap

Thought it might be a good idea to show ALL the gift boxes I’ve made this season, all in one post together.  So, if you’re thinking you already seen all of the following pictures; you’re right!  So this post is really more for future reference and for posterity!

12.12.12 projects Stars 070Dollar Tree gift boxes, topped with DT nests and eggs (I glittered the eggs and added some reindeer moss to fill out the nest)  The bow on the was on top of the box when I bought it. Just pulled it off (since it would have been covered by the nest anyhow!)  and put it back on where it was visible!

12.12.12 projects Stars 055White fabric covered boxes; tea stained; topped with a tea stained crepe paper rosette and  DT feather birds with a glitter crowns.

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 079
A couple more of the same boxes, just different ‘toppings’ that the previous ones shown.   These are topped with bundles of vintage frosted glass ornaments; some ribbon, a glittery snowflake and a tiny ‘joy’ tag.  (tag was printed on vintage dictionary page)

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 025This is just one of those ‘little extras’ that I like to do.  I add a handful of paper shred inside all of my gift boxes.  This is my own ‘recipe’ for paper shred; a combination of store bought kraft shred, hand folded and cut book pages and sheet music shred, hand folded and cut tissue paper, some bits of leftover gold ribbon cut into tiny pieces . . . you get the idea.  A little bit of everything!

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 085
Another DT box topped with a pair of white bottle brush trees and little ceramic house; all also from DT.   I just added glitter and glue!  (and paper shred!)

12.5.12 finds crafts Stars 056These are ‘use up those leftover snowmen from the store’!  Just plopped a snowman on a box and done!  (priced super cheap to get rid of them PLUS an additional 40% off for my downsizing sale!)

11.28.12 esty Stars 048Another one of the tea stained fabric boxes, this time topped with a gold resin bird wearing a vintage sheet music crown.  I placed a crepe paper rosette rimmed with gold glitter on top of the box and glued the bird into place in the center of that.  The sheer bow on top of the bird’s feet (hiding all the ugly glue!) is the bow that came on the box originally again.  Just pulled it off and made better use of it!

11.28.12 esty Stars 079I should have made more of these, as they sold the fastest.  Now I’ll know for next year.  AND I’ll be able to easily find my ‘gift box post’ to remind me when the time comes!

Happy Gift Wrapping to all!
