Just popping in real quick to leave a little quick gift inspiration. I have a couple of teen/pre-teen girls in my life that I wanted to gift with a little something so this year I have decided to make them each a packet of hair tinsel.
Do you know about hair tinsel and Hair Flair? Well take a peek here at the HairTinsel page.. it's hot with this pre- and teenage set and better yet it is VERY easy to make. No salon trip involved no matter what they infer.
To make my packages of Tinsel I used multiple types of glitz and glitter threads from my collection of quilting embellishment threads. I used small plastic zippy bags made for beading and some card stock.
I cut multiple pieces of each color to 48 inches long and neatly laid them out (ahem.. note - do not turn your back when your cat is in the room to help)
I cut the card stock to size to fit in the bags and then used a circle punch to cut out a nice scoop for the thread to rest in when wrapped around the card.
I slid the wrapped cards into the bags and tucked in the penguin gift tags. On the backs of the packages I put the link to Hair Flair Instructions and Hair Tinsel video
I figure that each small gift cost well under 50cents each.. and am thinking that a red/pink/silver combo might be just right for Valentines day! And given how fast it was I was able to make quite a few in less than 30 minutes today.. hurrah! and Happy Holidays to everyone!
