This year I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas countdown, showing off things I have made as gifts and ornaments either this year or in previous years. If you are wanting to make handmade gifts for your loved ones this year, then keep watching because I hope to put an awesome Christmas related tutorial or recipe up every day until Christmas Eve. Today is day 5!
Today I have a lovely guest poster dropping in to share a tutorial with you all, Heather from the Beating Hearth. I am pretty sure you are going to love her glitter name gift boxes as much as I do.
Merry Christmas everyone! It's Heather from The Beating Hearth and I am so excited to be a part of Adele's 24 Days to Christmas. Like her, I have my own Christmas series going on, Holiday Cookie Extravaganza! Every Monday and Wednesday until Christmas I will have a tasty treat for you, so please stop by.
Today I'm going to show you one of my favorite Christmas traditions. My beloved Grandma Evelyn is the originator of this project. If the internet had been around fifty years ago, she would have been in heaven. Not much of a sewist, she loves a classy yet simple way to add a little glamor to the every day.
Christmas day she gave us several gifts, but for each of her grandchildren, one present was different. It wasn't wrapped, and yet we knew it was the best of the bunch. It was simple, a white box, with a bow, and our name written in her beautiful hand, coated in glitter. I always opened that one last. So, start this tradition at your house, anyone who gets this present will feel special, indeed.
Thanks again Adele for letting me hang out here today! And remember, check out the Beating Hearth all month for the tastiest treats!!
Thank you so much for joining us today Heather, I absolutely love your idea. Good job, Grandma Evelyn!
