Need A Gift?🎁🎁

I have wanted to add a little variety to my etsy shop for a long time now but have been so busy with a million other things. It’s amazing how your days at work seem so long and once I get home it seems like time flies by and it’s time for bed.

Well slowly I have got a few new items and hope to have more in the upcoming weeks that I will share with you as well.

I made a personalized utensil set for a coworkers baby shower gift basket and just loved how they turned out.

The utensil set comes with two sets of utensils but in this selection it only shows one because it came with the second set at pink and this gift was for a boy lol. The manufacturer mixes up the colors so I am not able to have specific requests for color choices except for the vinyl choices. I asked everyone who purchases to specify girl, boy or gender neutral and I can add the last name for personalization if they do not know name or what they are having. I can customize with stars, polka dots, hearts and more at customer request.

I also added a sippy cup and snack containers to my shop as well the picture of that is above and it purchased as a set and again colors vary but please specify girl, boy or gender neutral if u do not know what u or your family member or friend is having. I will pick colors depending on what is in stock or on hand.

Here are some of the pictures of the personalized water bottles I have made teachers for their students, Girl Scout troops, sports teams and one order was for bottles that was being used inside of the goody bags given at the party.
I have red, blue, green and silver water bottles and they can be personalized with the color vinyl u pick or I can pick if u like its up to u. For large orders of silver I ask for notice in advance as this item is on back order alot or hard to find in my area. I currently have some stock of silver on hand.

I also sell upcycled/repurposed items and don’t forget my vintage/antique items as well here are some pictures of those items and more in my etsy shop.

The picture above is a wooden box that was very old and had to be brought into modern decor lol. It is painted purple with a clear coat and I used a pattern paper on the lid to add some fun to the box. The paper does have a clear coat on top as well. This item can be used in a child’s room to hold jewelry, small toys, in a office or adult bedroom to hold small items or in a foyer to collect small items and keys.

The picture above is a cute retro vase in lime green. Add this to any decor to give your home a pop of color.

I still have vintage/antique items as well here are a few pics of what I have

Coffee bags repurposed

creativestyledlife

My coffee addiction has given me an over abundance of coffee bags. There are so many possibilities of creating. My latest project is a wine bag. They are great for gifts (especially for coffee and wine lovers) or just for you to carry a bottle of wine.

Disclaimer: I did not take pictures as I was making this, since I was making it up as I went along. Sorry if something is not clear.

To start you will need: coffee bag, fabric, matching thread, sewing machine, iron, ironing board

Rinse out the coffee bag and let dry. Cut two pieces of fabric: one at 12″x6″ (for top) and one at 12″x5″ (for the strap). Be sure to measure your bag and adjust measurements to fit (add 1″ to the distance around bag).

Above is a diagram for the top of the bag. Finish one of the long edges and one…

Repurposed Baby Formula Containers

After seeing many containers being reused for all kinds of things from pencil holders to kitchen utensil holders I figured that i would ask some of my friends for their formula containers. I was thinking the round metal containers but y friend said that wasn’t what she had when she brought in the containers I knew I would be able to do something with them.

Above is a picture of the original containers she brought in for me. It has a easy snap type lid, so I got started right away with picking out some scrapbook paper for the containers. I have a lot of paper so this was a cheap easy project.

I decided instead of priming and painting the container so that I could choose other color options I just picked paper that would match the purple lid so I would be able to skip that step. I can’t wait for my friend to give me more of these because I think I will make some black and white ones for my scrapbook room.

I choose the paper and measured and cut out the pieces. I used a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper. This will cover the front and the sides of the container an you will have to cut a smaller piece to finish the back portion of the container. I used my mod podge to glue paper onto container and fuse the pieces of paper together on the back.

The uses or these containers are endless. You could store your Childs crayons or small toys. Make into a first aid kit for the car or home. I am not sure what I will use these for and if anyone has ideas please comment below and let me know looking for ideas for my classroom and for my home.
