DIY Snowflake Window Clings

In this video tutorial, make your own window clings using puffy paint/fabric paint!


I found that they can be a bit tricky to peel off the wax paper and may not stay on your window long term – so keep this in mind. If you’ve found a solution to these issues, please comment below and share your tips 🙂 That said, these are super easy to make and are a fun addition to your windows!

To create the snowflakes, I used Tulip Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint in the color “Crystal Sparkles,” which I ordered from Hobby Lobby. This particular paint worked very well for this project, but I’m sure you could use other brands and colors as well.

Also, don’t feel limited to only making the snowflakes on this template. You could also easily freehand your own, all you really need is wax paper and paint.

Mini Gingerbread House Gable Box Tutorial


Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re making a tiny gable box that looks like a gingerbread house! These are the perfect size for small gifts such as gift cards, jewelry, candy, and more.



I’ve always liked gingerbread houses (if you’ve seen a few of my Christmas tutorials like my Simple Paper Gingerbread House TutorialGingerbread House Snow Globe Tutorial, or my Halloween Paper Gingerbread House Tutorial I didn’t have to tell you that! 🙂 ) For this project, I thought a gable box might be the perfect shape to turn into a gingerbread house, and I think it worked really well.

Because this project involves an X-Acto knife, please ask someone to supervise if you are young 🙂


Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour


  • Kraft card stock paper (works great and is already gingerbread colored!)
  • White gel pen
  • Fine white glitter
  • X-Acto knife
  • Score tool
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Paper Honeycomb Christmas Ornament Tutorial

Paper Ornament

Paper Ornament

Hi everyone! In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a honeycomb Christmas ornament out of paper!


It looks quite complex, but is actually very easy! The most time consuming part is just cutting the pieces, and if you have a cutting machine such as a Cricut, you’ll have it made in no time at all!

Difficulty: Easy


  • Paper – try to get the thinnest paper you can. This works great with doubled sided paper, as both sides will show – but unfortunately it is hard to find thin paper of this kind. I just used single sided thin scrapbook paper, which works just fine!
  • Glue – I used my go-to hot glue, and it worked great. Feel free to try other adhesives, but it needs hold strong.
  • Scissors
  • String or ribbon for the hanger
  • Pencil

Honeycomb Ornament Pattern (For cutting by hand) You’ll need to cut 18 of these, which took about 3 sheets of 12×12 paper for me.


Here is the .PNG for use with cutting machines:

DIY Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas

Advent Calendar


In this video tutorial, we’re creating a fun Advent calendar to countdown to Christmas with!



Here’s how it works: there are 25 cards (you can place a written message inside each one, such as a fun Christmas activity idea, bible verse, etc.). Each card has a number on one side, and a section of a picture on the other. Start with all the numbers showing, and starting on December 1st, turn over one card each day. By Christmas, the picture will be completely revealed!

For this project, I created a picture of a Christmas tree using paper, but you can also use a photo instead! Just go to a printing place and print a square picture that is sized 12″ x 12″. Then just follow the rest of the steps.

Difficulty: Easy



Merry Christmas!

Interlocking Christmas Tree Paper Gift Box Tutorial

Christmas Tree Gift Box

In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating a paper interlocking christmas tree gift box!


I’ve been seeing cool gift boxes with interlocking closures on Pinterest, and I came up the idea to make one with a Christmas tree!

Difficulty: Easy (but it takes a little practice to easily open and close the box)

Time needed: ~20 minutes


  • Card stock or other paper with some thickness to it (you can make this with thinner paper, it just works much better with thicker paper)
  • Some sort of scoring tool, I use this one
  • Printer
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Hot glue (I always prefer hot glue for these kind of things because it holds strong and fast, but feel free to try other types of glue)

Easy Loom Knit Hat Tutorial – Knit & Purl Stitches

Loom knit hat

In this video tutorial, learn how to knit a hat with a loom! If you’ve never knitted before, or never used a loom before – no worries, you can make this! It isn’t difficult at all, and I’ve tried to simplify the steps as much as possible.

I first learned how to make these in elementary school. My classmates and I used to make so many of them! These hats are simple and quick enough that they are a great project for kids and adults alike!


Time needed: ~a few hours

Difficulty: Easy


A summary of the steps in this video:

•Alternate between knitting and purling each row until it reaches about 5 inches long. Bring first row up and put them back onto the pegs. Knit these together.

•Tie a knot to create a loop in a new color of yarn. Put this on first peg and wrap and knit this row.

•For the rest of the rows, follow the pattern of knitting 4 stitches, and purling 2, knit 4, purl 2. Continue until the hat is about 9 inches long.

•Cut the working yarn, leaving about a two foot tail. Run this yarn through each loop on each peg, and remove them from the pegs. Pull tight to gather the top together and tie some knots through the first loop to secure. Put leftover tail inside hat or weave through.
