Lift Me Up stamp set) and filled each compartment. This is perfect for storing ready-to-grab embellishments, or makes a perfect gift for an enthusiastic crafter.

3. Pyramid Favour Boxes
Designer Series Paper that takes your fancy. It is up to you whether you glue these closed, or you can opt for Tied Favours where you tie a bow to close at the top.
You can follow the tutorial HERE.
4. Stamped Glass Vase
StazOn Ink which can be used on a variety of different surfaces such as wood, glass and metal, and is available in different colours.
Stamp some StazOn ink (from most art shops) onto your glass and fix with an acrylic sealer like Krylon.
I used Black Staz On to decorate my vase with plants and bees. If I was to make this project again I'd probably use the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set as the one I used on this vase is no longer available.
You can see the original blog post HERE.
5. Chocolate Box Cover
Chocolate Box Cover.
This is a really quick and simple project to make and doesn't take much planning.
The box ties up at the top with a ribbon and is decorated on the front - of course you could decorate the other side and be as elaborate as you like.
This project is perfect for goody bags, table gifts and favours.
6. Stamped Candles
Stamp your image onto thin white tissue paper, cut around the shape as close to the image as possible, place onto the candle and wrap some greaseproof paper around. Apply heat from the heat gun. You will notice the image 'sweat' through the paper. Do not apply too much heat for
We have a wonderful range of Stamp Sets that are perfect for candle decorating.
7. Square Scarf Box
ribbon keeps the lid securely in place.
You can use whatever colours suite your gift. I have actually stamped the bees onto the lid, or you could affix some Designer Series Paper onto some Cardstock.

8. Forest Framed Picture
Big Shot Machine, Woodland Embossing Folder, Aqua Painters, Ink Refills, Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad and a Brayer. Oh, and a frame! This one cost less than £3.00 from QD Stores - bargain!
Of course you could use a different Embossing Folder from our range.
Alternatively, you could use a selection of Designer Series Papers instead of embossed card for a striking picture. This would make a perfect gift.
Follow the tutorial HERE.
9. Bohemian Pendant Necklace
These pendants are perfect presents - with Christmas approaching they make the perfect stocking filler or Secret Santa gift.
You'll only need a few basic items to make these - wooden washers, beads, patterned papers and some thread or ribbon.
Learn how to make these pendants by following the tutorial HERE.
10. Jar of Gratitude
This is a jar that you fill with good thoughts, moments and memories that happen throughout the year, so that you can read them back to yourself before the start of a fresh new year.
Of course you could start this at any time, but it's so lovely to read them on New Year's Eve and then start afresh with new memories from the 1st of January.
You can make your jar as fancy and elaborate as you like, and if you are gifting it you could include a lid.
I have used some Designer Series Paper for this project.
