Handmade Christmas – Day 4

We’re so happy to see by your comments that you’re getting lots of inspiration from our Handmade Holiday Gift ideas this week. We’ve got some more ideas for you today.  First we’d love to show you another project from our terrific Tammie Wilson.  She took some vintage luggage and turned it into a darling piece of home decor for any feminine room. Stack them for an adorable end table or night stand, separate them for a darling display anywhere. And she used some of our girliest stamps and Fran•táge accessories. You can find the complete supply list and directions for this great project HERE

We have some fantastic Design Team projects for you as well today. Be sure to check out these blogs and leave your comments. We’ll be giving away some of the fantastic stamps used to create these projects to inspire your handmade holiday creations.
