handmade holidays {guest post} Jodi from Oh.Scrap.That.

Welcome to the handmade holidays series!!  This year, I have asked six amazing bloggers to sharing one of their favorites ways to make the holidays handmade and heart felt!  

Please join me in welcoming Jodi from Oh.Scrap.That!!  She is new to this crazy world of blogging, but she is jumping in with both feet!  Her blog is full of creative projects and here are some of my favorites!!

1. Autumn Wall Hanging 2. Cigar Box Upcycle 3. Burlap/Fabric/Button Flowers

Hi everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!  First I must say a huge thanks to Keri for giving a newer craft blogger like me the opportunity to guest blog at such an awesome blog as hers. I was so excited when she told me I get to play a part in this series.

Now onto the whole reason of the series….  handmade holiday gifts. While I have quite a few different gift ideas set to make, I have been so busy making some Thanksgiving decorations and some other crafty requests that I am really just beginning to conquer my hand made gifts!

For today I thought I would share a really easy and  inexpensive  that could be fora neighbor, teacher, or small exchange. I originally found the idea on, where else … Pinterest!  The original post is at Today’s Fabulous Finds.  

While  I totally adore their version, I switched mine up a little.

My blocks were a tad smaller because I was using scraps from hubby’s shop scrap stash. My blocks were 5×5 maybe about an inch and a half thick. I love this project because it is literally so simple once you have the woods pieces. And they are so incredibly easy to  you can make one for everyone!  I made a little collage of some of the closeup details of the two I have made for my mom and sister. Not sure why the one with the little Pearly flower didn’t want to cooperate with me, you get my drift, right?

I am so happy with these  that I am really thinking about making more… Maybe even some manly ones for hubs, dad and brother in law. I do hope you have enjoyed my share and please stop by and visit to see all the other home made goodies  I have planned as holiday gifts!  Have a happy, healthy, and safe (glue gun burns included) holiday season!

Thanks so much for sharing this, Jodi!  I love that wood scraps, some pretty paper, embellishments and a little creativity results in a gift that would be awesome for teachers, grandparents, home cooks or just about anyone!  Clip on the kids’ school pictures or a favorite recipe when you gift it and then send updated photos/recipes each month for the recipient to switch out and you truly have a heart felt, handmade gift!!
