Last Minute Holiday Gift Idea

Hi there. I have a handful of fun felt coasters using MFT felt along with old and new Die-namics that qualify as a Last Minute Gift Idea! The great thing about these designs is that 1) they're quick and easy, 2) you can sub in dies that you already have in your stash and 3) they're just plain cute and fun!

Each coaster consists of three layers of felt glued together with die cut inlays on the top layer. You can sew or glue your base layers together. I used glue on mine to keep with that last minute quick theme.

  • Die cut a martini glass from the top circle layer and again from contrasting felt; reposition the glass in the Circle STAX top layer (like putting a puzzle together).
  • Place your puzzle in your die cut machine and place the leaf die on top of your puzzle, overlapping it on the glass rim just a bit; die cut leaf from green felt and put your puzzle back together.
  • Place your puzzle in your die cut machine and place the tiny circle die (berry) as shown in picture; die cut from red felt and put your whole puzzle together.
(If that is just not clear to you, please let me know, and I'll be happy help you out best I can!)

The MFT crew put together some really awesome felt creations as part of this month's Creative Challenge which you can get to from the MFT Blog, so check it out. 

I'm going to try and be back with a  few more projects before we wrap up 2014, but if I don't, I want to wish you all a very blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!

MFT New Product Launch - Candy Train Die-namics

Welcome to the December New Product Launch with My Favorite Things! I've got three completely different projects using the Candy Train Die-namics to share with you, so let's get started. You'll find direct shopping links at the bottom of the post.

First up is a cute and colorful circus train using some of the newly release card stock colors in combination with background stamps and dies. The Razzle Berry boxcar is stamped with the diamond pattern from Large Scale Backgrounds, but is scarcely visible in the pictures.

My second project uses the Candy Train base without the wheels in combination with the Emmitt Alphabet, Wild Greenery and Pierced Star STAX. 

The Kraft base is stamped with Wood Plank Background in Sweet Tooth ink for a 'wooden box' look. I love to combine MFT dies and stamps to create completely different looks. 

My last project uses Candy Train as a 'little red wagon'. I've used the Emmitt Alphabet to spell out 'one' and changed up the wheels a bit using circle dies from Blueprints 21.

I also embossed the background layer with the Jumbled Letters Stencil and added gifts to the wagon using Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX.

The inside is finished with another Stitched Rounded Rectangle and sentiment from Photo Booth in Sweet Tooth ink.

Whew, that was a long one! Thanks for stopping by and best of luck in the prize drawing MFT is so generously offering for leaving a little love on the design team blogs. Please visit the MFT Blog for complete details.
