The 12 Days of Craftmas!

Omgoodness, I am SO EXCITED to be participating in this amazing new tradition, the 12 days of craftmas!!

Are you excited? You should be! Cause it flipping AWESOME!

So, today is my day! If you have missed yesterday, the go back to Lizzie's blog and check out her awesome craftastic christmas craft!

Now, though, its my turn! It wasn't easy, but I was able to round up a bunch of scrabble tiles. I used a strong adhesive and glued the tiles together into words. It took a lot of patience, but I love how they turned out.

To attach the eye at the top I used a very fine drill bit and slowly (and I mean slowly) drilled a hole into the top and then screwed them in. I took some fun Christmas ribbon and tied bows. Viola! Awesome, unique Christmas ornaments. They also would look great as tags on your Christmas gifts!

Can't you imagine these adorable things hanging on your tree?The thing I love, besides the awesome of them, is that they are so cusomizable! 

Oh, and there is one more small thing, did I mention there was a give-away today? That's right! Thought that would make Craftmas even MORE exciting! WOO! 

In the photo there are 3 rolls of festive deco tape, The Sugar Plum Fairy (Paper Makeup Stamps), a set of Thickers and a set of letter stickers from one of my fave companies, Glitz! And don't forget the adorable sequin snowman! It a really great prize pack!
