Handmade Christmas Gifts

So this year we made a lot of handmade gifts to save money. Here are two of my favorites, an altered Gingerbread calendar for my Mom and 26, yes 26 moustache mugs for all of Aspen's friends, teachers and Scott and my co-workers.

Materials Used: Crate Paper/Peppermint paper collection; Jillibean Soup/Dark Woodgrain Chipboard Alphas, Kraft Tags & pink/red felt blossom; Queen & Co/Felt Gingerbread Stickers; Zva/Pink flowers; Recollections/Gingerbread STickers; pink & red gemstones

This idea was discovered by my daughter Aspen via one of her favorite blogs to follow: Kandee Johnson, the full tutorial is found here: A trip to the dollar store for mugs and a special marker from Michaels and we were all set.

Of course we had to add something inside the mugs so there were 2 dipped and sprinkled oreos in each mug as well. YUM. The mugs were a huge hit!

Hope your Christmas was fabulous!
