Happy Friday, everyone! Hope your week has been going well. Mine has! I took a little detour this week, and instead of making cards, I’ve been creating a few other holiday goodies to sell at the Vintage Marketplace in November and December. The first weekend of November (3rd, 4th, & 5th) is the “Holiday Open House” at the Marketplace, so I wanted to have some fun and festive small items for sale. (Come visit us, if you’re local!!)

These cute little vintage-style hangars are really fun to make. I have a lot of digital prints of vintage-style Christmas scenes and people, and chose mostly little children for these hangars. The original ones I saw years ago were made of thin wood, but since I don’t have thin wood, I used a lightweight “cardboard”, diecut two pieces of the cardboard, glued them together and then added a layer of diecut glitter cardstock, ribbon hangars, and the digital prints. Then came a tiny bit of decoration.

Aren’t they cute? They are really fun to make, even tho’ a bit time consuming, with all the layers and letting the glue dry, etc. I think some will perhaps want to hang these on a Christmas tree. They’re light weight enough that that would work. I personally like to hang them other places around the house, for the holidays. I often hang one on a doorknob, the pull knob on a drawer, or some other place where this little piece is the “star of the show” rather than just another tree decoration. Whatever you do with them, I think they had some fun “shabby” looks for the holidays!

Hope you all have a great weekend . . . remember . . . create something every day! Tuesday I’ll be back to show you some of the other shabby items I’ve been creating . . . gonna be busy getting them finished!

Hugs! Janice
