How Many days till Christmas???

Yes I said Christmas! It's only 5 months away and for you die hards that's 148 days! Have you thought about making any Christmas gifts for this year? Would you like to get a jump start on the holidays this year and make some cool, fast and fun presents? Well if you said YES then here are two fun and fast projects to make!

The Monogram Wall Hanging

You'll need a MOSD Desk album, a Monogram Stick on of your choice

and ribbon.

1st step take the protective cover off the acrylic

2nd step center and line up the Monogram Stick on to one side of the

Acrylic Desk Album.

3rd step adhere the Stick On to the acrylic

4th step Attach ribbon and bow using the prepunched holes

at the top of the acrylic piece.

Easey Peasey--this is a gift that would also be great as a new baby nursery item too! Takes less than 5 minutes (unless you're bow challenged like me, then it takes less than 10 minutes)

Another Fun, Fast and Very functional Gift to make!
An altered planner!
You'll need a planner with a plastic cover that allows the front insert to be slipped out. I picked this up at Walmart around 7.00. Patterned paper and your choice of a Monogram Stick On.
1st step take the original insert out of the planner cover and use as a cutting guide for the pattern paper. Trim pattern paper to size
2nd step apply the Monogram Stick on to the Pattern Paper.
3rd Step Slide the decorated piece back into the planner cover insert
VOILA you're done!! Another fast, fun and functional gift to make for the holidays in less than 5 minutes!!
Now you've got two great gifts made for the holidays! Happy Tuesday to everyone.
