Dollar Store Christmas Card Carfting

Save money by purchasing your craft and card making supplies at  Dollar Tree  ! That's right you can find blank cards, papers, embellishments, adhesives and more at your favourite dollar store, save money and make more cards!  Or, buy a box of the ready-made cards like I do, you get so many for so little...and turn these ready-made simple cards into some beautiful with a handmade touch card!

**Sponsored Post**


Begin with ready-made cards from  Dollar Tree. Here's a link to some cards http://shrsl.com/18uot

.

Next using scissors that can cut fine details cut out all the elements you like from a second card.




Select which elements you wish to enhance.  Use dimensional foam adhesives to attach said pieces onto another card by layering over the same image or letters.

 Another step is to add glitter to specific areas to add some interest.

 Thirdly, think about using the design of the card itself to influence how you can add to its appearance.  For example, in this situation, I chose to wrap some embroidery thread in and around the letter "O" in the word season before sticking it down with the dimensional foam adhesive.

Craft Cute Canvas Bags


The lightweight, low-profile BrightPad makes crafting easier while reducing eye strain.

Craft some cute canvas bags with ready made bags purchase at your favourite craft or dollar store.





Make some cute coordinating canvas bags to organize your life with the help of the NEW  Cricut Easy Press™2.



To make these I used two canvas bags I purchased at a dollar store, A Cricut Iron On Design. and the NEW Cricut Easy Press™2.


See the how to here:


The third bag was made using materials supplied with the NEW Cricut Easy Press™2.  Included was the canvas bag and the Glitter Iron On from Cricut.

Note that each type of iron material requires its own temperature setting on the easy press.  Please, take the time to read the suggested heat levels included with each product.  Use caution when working with any iron or heat press, and work on a protected heat resistant surface as the heat can melt many surfaces.  In the video you can see how a Cricut brand EasyPress mat was used.

Holiday Planner Christmas Crafting with Dollar Tree

** Compensated Post**


In no time the Holidays will be here so here's a craft to help you with all that planning, and it's affordable too as you can find all the materials at your Dollar Tree and even online at DollarTree.com.



To make this I used a small binder with a polyvinyl cover measuring 7" x 9".


The inside has dividers made of sheets of poster board in gold, silver, and white, and decorated with a variety of Holiday Themed stickers.


The pages are cut down sheets of graph paper and college ruled paper.


The adhesive and hole puncher is also available at Dollar Tree.  The only other item I used is my label maker to make the labels on each divider page.

                                                                    See the video.

I hope that you are inspired to get crafty for the Holidays, and enjoy all the activities with less stress because you will have a handy-dandy planner to help you!

Stay tuned for more Crafting at the Tree for Christmas here and on my Youtube channel!

In upcoming posts and videos,  I will share some decorating and gift giving ideas.  All of them affordable, all of them from The Dollar Tree!

Halloween Front Entrance Decor with Cricut

Hello, and almost Happy Halloween to you all!  Today I have some Cricut® (Sponsored) Made DIY Halloween crafts to share with you that I used to create this Halloween Porch Scape or Front Entrance Decor. I hope you like.


To create this Handmade Halloween Decor I used several props from the Dollar store as a base.  I then made the rest of the parts with my Cricut Maker™.  I had fun using a variety of cutting materials and accessories.

Cricut Maker Machine
Cricut Maker™, "The Ultimate Smart Cutting Machine." Can be used with a variety of tools and cuts several types of materials.

To begin, take a look at the Halloween Cat Pumpkins I made with Dollar Store carvable foam pumpkins!

To make this all I did was paint the Foam pumpkin, applied a tattoo and made some ears out of 12 in. x 12 in. Glitter Cardstock in Black "Cricut™". With the Maker™,   I used the Adhesive Cutting Mat Standard Grip 12 in. x 12in. "Cricut™", and a Standard Blade and Housing for Maker™ "Cricut" to cut out two triangles. I chose to make the cat ears using a triangle shape twice in the Cricut Design Space™.  I first scored the paper with the Scoring Wheel Housing and Wheel for Maker™ "Cricut™". At the last minute, I chose to round off the pointy ears with some scissors.

After the paint was dry, and the tattoo applied I cut some slits into the top sides of each pumpkin using the Scoring Wheel Housing and Wheel for Maker™ "Cricut™", and inserted each Cat ear.  I also used some hot glue to secure each ear in place.


Next, I made some spider webs!  Using the 12in. x 12in. Cardstock in Black "Cricut™", a Adhesive Cutting Mat Standard Grip 12 in. x 12in. "Cricut™" and the Standard Blade and Housing for Maker™ "Cricut".  I chose a Spider Web Banner in Cricut Design Space™ and used the Maker™ to create and cut.



The third creation I have to share is the Scaredy Cat Window Cling.


To make two of these I chose a Cat image in Cricut Design Space™ that I enlarged to 15 inches in height.  Using the Adhesive Cutting Mat Standard Grip 12 in. x 24 in. "Cricut™" and Vinyl Window Cling in Black "Cricut™" I proceeded to have the Maker™ cut one cat with Mirror Image off, and the second cat with Mirror Image on.  So, the cats could be facing each other. To cut the window cling I used the Standard Blade and Housing for Maker™ "Cricut".   

List of materials:

Vinyl Window Cling in Black "Cricut™"
12 in. x 12 in. Glitter Cardstock in Black "Cricut™"
12in. x 12in. Cardstock in Black "Cricut™"
Adhesive Cutting Mat Standard Grip 12 in. x 12in. "Cricut™"
Adhesive Cutting Mat Standard Grip 12 in. x 24 in. "Cricut™"
Scoring Wheel Housing and Wheel for Maker™ "Cricut™"
Standard Blade and Housing for Maker™ "Cricut"
True Control Knife "Cricut™"
Carvable Foam Pumpkins "DollarTree"
Pumpkin Tattoos (Glow in the Dark) "Dollarama"
Acrylic Paint in Black "DecoArt Crafter's Acrylic"
Metallic Acrylic Paint in Black Pearl "DecoArt Metallics"
Glue Gun "AdTech"
Glue Sticks "AdTech"

Here is a video showing briefly how I made the above projects.
