Cold, Hard... Crafts

This is the second year of our blissfully stress-free, no shopping, no gift Christmas. I love it. Everyone should do it.

With few exceptions, you can only give a handmade (with no new supplies bought) or a re-gifted gift in our family. It's quite fun, creative, and no one has to go to a store. You should try it.

I can't wait to see what everyone does this year. I'll be sharing mine after Christmas.

But this is something I did for an art fair earlier this year, except in a Bar/Bat Mitzvah theme. Now, it's Christmas. A festive little money book for anyone who really just needs/wants some cold hard cash for a birthday or Christmas. Cash - it's a classic. :)

Here's the outside. A simple vanilla folder, with a 1/2" spine, Dasher, and the new Fine Flourish from the Occasions mini in Going Grey, and the greeting from Merry Details in Real Red.
And here's the money shot.

Merry Christmas Eve!!! Tomorrow, a Christmas wish and my Christmas card.

Have a great evening!

  1. What a great idea! I love it!

    We don't do gifts in our family either. My kids have never gotten a Christmas gift from the hubby and I. Instead, we pick a charity to give to and the kids usually pick an angel off the tree and do shopping for needy kids in our area.

    My kids love it and look forward to it and don't mind one bit that we don't do gifts. they've learned the power of giving.

  2. Cute! Merry Christmas Lydia!!
