Merry Christmas Santa Plate

Head on over to and get yourself one of these super cute Santa cutouts. I designed this for my friend, Courtney. She has some great vinyl products that are so cute and affordable! This craft cost me around $10. I got the cutout from her for $8.00 and the plate from TJ Maxx for $2.99. (Next time I'll just go to the Dollar Tree and get a similar plate for $1.00! Head on over to Courtney's blog to purchase one for yourself!

Santa's Big Book of Secrets

This past Halloween, my mother-in-law bought the cutest wooden book that said Black Cat Magic on it. I fell in love with it and I wanted it. Bad. But I didn't want to pay $30 for it.  So I decided that I wanted to design a book cover and make one myself.  Well, I never got around to it.  Now with Christmas around the corner, I decided to design a Christmas themed book cover. The best part about it is it only cost me around $7.00.

Here's a list of things you'll need:

*2 cardboard boxes 
(I got mine at Joanns, but I've also seen them at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. The bigger book is $4.99 and the smaller one is $3.99, but with my coupons I spent just under $7.00. And did you know that Joann's takes Michael's coupons? 

*Santa's big book of secrets and reindeer magic printables:
(make sure you click on the picture to make it bigger and then print it from there)

*White Spray paint. 
I used Rust-oleum Painter's Touch in white. The pictures shows Krylon, but the Krylon was too runny and not sticking to the cardboard. 

*Mod Podge and craft brush
*Optional items: Ribbon, glitter, and gel stain

Spray paint boxes on sides and edges. No need to do the front and back cover because they'll be covered

Print off your front and back covers

Mod podge your print onto your book. Before you mod podge the top of your paper (as shown in the picture) make sure it's completely dry to prevent air bubbles. 

I always try and smooth out any air bubbles by using a credit card.
Mod podge the top of your book cover. And let it dry completely

STEP 5: (optional)
I outlined some words and dots with mod podge and then put glitter on top of it. I liked the effect it gave. 

STEP 6: 
After it's dry, take some sand paper and sand around the edges of the book.
STEP 7: (optional)
Take some cute ribbon and tie it around the box. This is the glitter I used for step 5. It's the Martha Stewart brand and I got it from Hobby Lobby. Ribbon is from Michael's.

Sit back and enjoy the fun craft you made!

*Notice: in the first picture I have the gel stain pictured because I thought I would use it to after I mod podged it. I didn't end up using it because I liked the way it looked without it. Feel free to try it out though. Let me know how it goes.
