I know it is too early to think about Christmas, but I have to plan ahead. This adorable ice cream cone ornament was featured on the Better Homes and Garden site. As soon as I saw it, I knew my version was not going to use a paper mache cone. Instead, I am going to find a heavy tan colored piece of cardstock and stamp it with a waffle cone/diamond patterned rubber stamp inked in another shade of brown/tan. When I am done stamping it, I will shape it into a cone. Don't worry, as soon as I make the ornament I will post the how tos, costs, and a list of my supplies.
I will probably also add some tiny beads for sprinkles and maybe a red pompom or bead for a cherry on top.
I am participating in a kids holiday bazaar this December and have been searching for some quick, easy, and inexpensive ideas. All products we sell at the bazaar have to be homemade and sold for under $5 so the kids can purchase gifts for their parents, teachers, grandparents, siblings, and friends. This ornament is made with colored glass ornaments, glue, glitter, and gems.
The Creativity Bugs are avid crafters who got into crafting at a very early age. The love of crafting was inherited from their mom, who loving taught Sue and sister Sandy how to make something special out of next to nothing.
Creativity Bug Sue is a crafty crafter whose first crafting projects include potholders made with string loops, doll furniture made from recycled cereal boxes and plastic containers, and vases made from old bottles covered with masking tape and inks. Not surprising her first Brownie badge earned was for arts & crafts.
Creativity Bug Sandy is a crafter, artist, and seamstress. Art classes in high school broaden her horizons, gave her a flare for color and design, and a desire to turn trash into treasures. No one has a better knack at finding diamonds in the rough at garage sales & thrift stores and turning them into unique gifts than Sandy.
This blog was created to show case some of Sue and Sandy's favorite things; scrapbooking, card making, paper crafting, cooking/baking, sewing, reading, how to's, and creating treasures out of found things.
