DIY Christmas Gift Ideas

I can not believe how quickly Christmas is coming!  Typically by this time of year I already have a good portion of my shopping done.  Sadly, I have’t even started yet!  Ack!

But thankfully, when my mom was in town a few weeks ago, she helped kick me in gear because she wanted to make small Christmas gifts to give to some of her friends using my Silhouette.

So we went to work and with a little white vinyl, a few 1″x2″x12″ pieces of wood, red paint and some sand paper we came up with this cute and inexpensive Christmas gift to give out to friends during the holidays:
