An SVG to make a card for Mother’s Day. #affiliate
As a mom, I have to say some of the best presents are homemade. I love it when my daughters take the time to make me something. I’d rather they not spend money on me. This Mother’s Day Card is one with a few steps but it isn’t difficult to make. I think any mother would appreciate a handmade card.
I work with a few different companies and with this card, I was able to combine their products. The following links are affiliate links, they cost nothing for you to use and in fact, they help support this site. Thank you for using them.
Learn how to make a Santa gnome from simple materials, many found at the dollar store.
Mini Santa Gnomes are so fun to make and are great holiday-themed items. Each one can have its own personality. They can have big noses or long beards. You can twist the fake fur making a handlebar mustache. Your Santa gnome can be made fat or skinny. Change the color of the hat for a different look. Different decorative elements on the hat can change the theme completely.
I chose to add a pin to the back so my Santa Gnome can be worn. Another option would be to add a hook and hang him on your Christmas tree. These mini gnomes can decorate packages or used for other decorative elements. I have one sitting on my desk!
The list of materials may seem rather long but they aren’t expensive. Once you have obtained them all, you can actually make ten Santa Gnomes from one pack of gloves. You will have a lot of other materials left over, so grab another pack of gloves for more gnome making. Items noted with DT were bought at the Dollar Tree.
2 pairs of glovesDT
small rubber bands DT
pom pom or bell DT
polyfill (or similar)
Hot Glue and Gun
ornament hook (optional)
Fake fur can be expensive so purchase as small a cut as possible – 1/4 a yard or even an 1/8 a yard. You don’t need much for the mini gnomes. I found mine at Walmart. Fake fur can be found in a variety of different colors.
The SVG file can be used to cut and draw. I chose to draw the type and numbers but you can cut them out of vinyl or card stock too. Then the shape was cut from the 12 x 12 card stock.
The drawn text is done as an outline. I chose to fill it in with a marker. A thick permanent marker was used to fill in the numbers. I did so in a rough, quick manner to make the advent appear more handmade. You can choose to do yours as you desire.
I used snack sized candy and attached them to the advent with Glue Dots.
Here is a close up of the numbers and the candy attached to the advent.
What will you use on your advent?

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner so you might want to make this Lucky Shamrock Mug now to get ready. Why is it lucky? Because there is one four-leaf shamrock among all the three-leaf ones. So just like in nature, there is luck in finding it! Can you spot it? And of course, the design is on a beer mug. Don’t you drink green beer on St. Patrick’s Day?
I want to thank Cricut and Etchall for providing materials used in this post. The following links are affiliates. Thank you for considering to click on them. It helps support this site is a small way and costs you nothing extra.
Download the free SVG file and size it to your mug. If using the mug from the Dollar Tree, I found 10″ wide for the design to work well. I didn’t use one of the shamrocks. Make sure to clean the surface of the mug with rubbing alcohol.
Wrap it around the mug in your desired location. I liked the top rim of the mug for my design. I found wrapping around the mug to be a bit more difficult to get straight than I anticipated. Remove any air bubbles and rub the vinyl down really well.
Cover the design with Etchall cream using your paintbrush and allow it to sit for 15 minutes.
Remove any excess cream and put it back in the jar. Then wash the mug in warm water, you can also use soap.
Remove the vinyl and discard it. Now the mug is ready to use and enjoy!
I am not Irish but when I think of St. Patrick’s Day the first thing that comes to mind is green beer. I guess it is a throwback to my college days. So I created this Happy St. Partick’s Day coaster. The design is more like a seal so it could work well on other substrates like a t-shirt or a tote. The image is a free SVG file so you can download it and resize it however you’d like.

Ready for St. Patrick’s Day and green beer!
I planned on participating in this first SVG blog hop but I got my dates confused, I was sick, and didn’t get my project images submitted on time. But I still want to help promote the hop and all the free SVG files available for St. Patrick’s Day.
This is an example of the sixty some odd heart boxes we made for Valentine’s Day. Who were the lucky recipients? Kids in my daughters’ classes and their basketball teammates. What was inside? Those famous lip balm balls everyone is talking about, a mustache whistle and a valentine gumball. Some boxes were filled with spritz heart cookies as well. We had so much fun making them, we worked in a production line fashion. This was from last year. This year, we need to come up with something similar to place those yummy Lindt Chocolates into. That post will be coming soon.
Learn how to turn a mirrored image into a 3D ornament just like this snowflake with Cricut.
The thing I like most about snowflakes besides no two being alike is that they are great for winter decor. They work for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, or a general winter theme.
Using any mirrored image, you can turn it into a 3D shape. Snowflakes work for this idea. In this post I will show how I took a simple snowflake cut in Design Space and by adding a score line then making multiple cuts, it can be turned into a 3D hanging decor.
Make one large snowflake to hang in a doorway or from a light fixture, or you can make multiples to hang all together to cover a larger area or make smaller versions for Christmas tree ornaments.

I wanted to thank Cricut for providing my cutting machine in order to create posts using their products.
This is an Explore Air 2 – Easy one-Cut Holiday project. One shape that is cut multiple times to make the ornament. In the video below you will see how you set up one snowflake to cut and then you can tell your machine to cut multiples of that one image. The software knows where to place it on the mat to use the optimal amount of surface space without wasting any materials.
The following video will show you how I set up the snowflake file in Design Space.
Fun hat ornaments made from toilet paper rolls and yarn. Learn how to make your own.
These cute Winter Hat Ornaments are easy to make. They only take a few items that you probably already have at home and they are easy enough to make with children. Use one kind of yarn or a variety to create a striped hat. The options are really endless by using a variety of different yarns. This is a great craft to use up leftover project yarn.
toilet paper roll
Cut a 1/4 to 1/2 inch loop from the toilet paper roll.
Cut lengths of yarn about 10″ long. I wrap around my thumb and pinkie fingers and then cut on of the loops.
Fold one piece of yarn in half. Place the loop through the tube.
Put the ends of the yarn through the loop.
Pull the ends tight.
Continue to do so until the tube is full of yarn.
Using one more strand of yarn, collect all the yarn ends and tie a double knot, very tightly.
Stuff a balled-up tissue into the hat to fill out the shape.
Trim the top “poof” of the hat and play with it to get the desired fullness.
You can use different colors of yarn to create a striped pattern if you desire.
Different yarns will create a different look, acrylic versus wool, etc…
You can use another piece of yarn to hang your ornament or insert a wire hanger into the top of the hat.
Instead of an ornament, use the hat to top off a bottle of wine.
Decorate a present using the hat like you would a bow.
