A Gift for Mom

This Christmas will be a tight one for us. But never fear!
While perusing my craft supplies I found nearly all of the supplies I need for making Christmas gifts :)

I had all the supplies I needed for making some earring for my Mom. She moved in with us last year and it has been a blessing. She also loves her jewelry so I thought it ideal to make her some earrings.

I did not have any boxes to place them in but decided on making cards for the earrings. I had some blank cards which I took a punch to, I glued some vintage sheet music on the inside of the card. 

I am one to save Victorian Trading Company catalogs (I love their graphics and items!) and used a couple of images to glue on the front of the cards. I made slits for the earrings and think that they came out rather cute! They will be placed in the coordinating envelope and wrapped with ribbon.

Now onto the felted wool!


  1. I'd love to see pics of what you make with the felted wool. I enjoy felting too. I'm making some of my own gifts this year too.

  2. Melody Joy,
    Thanks for visiting!
    The plan is to make a pair of lined mittens. I have a beautiful plaid felted scarf (for the lining) and a really nice matching cable knit sweater for the mittens themselves.
