And now that that's out of the way...
My sister Julie found us a little project to do that could be done even with one crafty bone, so it was just right for me. Observe:
Fancy schmancy embossed ornaments! Cute, right? But wait - there's more.
And yes - you read that correctly - we embossed. That's right - embossed. Like we had to use special embossing powder and a little embossing heating tool thingamajig to do this. Embossing is boss.
I kinda love them.
I made six total: two for my mom, two for my mom-in-law, and two for me. They made excellent grandma gifts, don't you think?
And I took exactly zero pictures of the process. I bet you can figure out what we did though, since chance are, you have more crafty bones than I do. (Answer: stamp letters with embossing ink on ornament. Cover with embossing powder. Heat until successfully embossed. Strap squirmy child down whilst stamping their embossing ink-covered hand on the opposite side of the ornament. Cover with embossing powder. Heat until successfully embossed. Tie pretty bows. Tie the best bow you can when it doesn't exactly come out "pretty." Say "Ta da!")
Okay, now - how much do you love them?
That's what I thought.
