Before teaching the class I made a wide variety of gifts using the posy pins. Today, I am going to show you how these simple flowers can be used to turn a drab gift box into a fab present, how an ordinary elastic headband can be transformed into an amazing hairpiece, AND how upholstry fabrics plus a posy here and there can make a sweet bag.
Disclaimer: I am not going to show a tutorial today because there are so many better tutorials out there. So I will give credit where credit it due, so check out here, and here, and here.
First, I am going to showcase different ways that posies can be used to enhance gift wrapping.
FYI, if you want to surprise your giftees with a little extra gift attach the posy to a pin and then stick it to the tag. That way after Christmas they can ditch the tag and attach the pin to their favorite coat, bag, or scarf.
Now for the fun stuff!
Being thrifty is not always something I have done, now with a baby, two sets of families and a mortage it just seems like I have to be more creative with my gifts, without losing the thoughtfulness. So here are some ideas of gifts you can make or embellish by just adding a simply posy to the present.
Since then I have made blankets, toys, and this bag. Using the already set holes I used a scarf for the handle, and posies for some added embellishments.
Gift Idea #6 Taking "drab" home decor and jazzing it up. This maybe my favorite gift. First, I loooove pillows, and secondly, I love how a plain robin's egg blue pillow can be transformed into such a beautiful accent.
So there you have it. A few simple but fab Christmas ideas sure to make any chicka very happy!
