Happy Holidays! With Christmas around the corner I wanted to do a giveaway of some fun Christmas Printables for you all.
Give Love & Give Joy printable I made was inspired by this section at Hobby Lobby. I love the blue and red together so I had to create a fun printable to match.

Every year I make Reindeer food for my daughters to sprinkle outside on Christmas Eve. They love it and it is so easy. If you’re hosting a Christmas party with kids, get a bowl of oatmeal and sprinkle glitter in it, and let them scoop some up in a bag. Here is a cute free printable made by Hip 2 Save that you can attach to their bags.
Watch your kids faces light up when they call this Santa number.
Tis the season to give back. If you’re planning any random acts of kindness this season here is a little cheerful note to add to your gift. I have so far given one to my Starbucks Barista with a Target $5 gift card.
Here is a way to get your kids involved with giving back with help from Elf on the Shelf.
Chalkboard 5×7 Merry Christmas
North Pole snow 5×7. I used to cover some fake snow I bought in a box. If your having a party and have fake snow for the kids to play in you can use this sign.
Merry Christmas 5×7
Another version of a welcome back letter for your Elf on the Shelf
I know I am not the only crazy one out there that has already started decorating for Christmas. In my defense; I do work retail so by Thanksgiving I won’t have time nor want to do it. So during my weekly/almost daily walks through Target (on my lunch break) they were putting out the new Christmas Target items. So like any normal Christmas lover would do I squealed and filled up my basket. I came across these light bulb ornament’s for a pack of three for $2.00 I bought four different colors so I had 12 bulbs. I also bought this silver tinsel garland for $3.oo. All I did was run my ornaments through using the string the ornaments had on them, tied a knot around my tinsel and cut the remaining string off. There you go: a fun and easy Christmas garland that anyone can make. Plus it only cost $11.00 to make. Don’t forget to look for extra savings with their cartwheel app.
Alright guys our little Elf on the Shelf will be flying back from the North Pole soon! I really wanted to tie in pay it forward ideas for my daughters and I knew our little Sugar (Elf) could help us out and make it fun. I have seen all sorts of cute welcome back ideas for Elf on the Shelf. I love the North Pole breakfast idea. Below is a free 5×7 Elf on the Shelf “welcome back” letter, you can frame it or cut it out on cardstock.
I created these little cards with pay it forward ideas that our elf can bring with her on random days.
Simply print and cut out and place on your Elf’s lap
I found instant snow at Dollar Tree and I created a better looking cover, here is a freebie.
These cups are the cutest things I have ever seen. I bought them at Target for $1.99. They had all sorts of fun Christmas mugs for children and have matching adult mugs. Dollar Tree had Christmas mugs as well and had traveler Christmas mugs.
**update** Here are some pictures of our pay it forward ideas
These little Christmas trees are easy and fun to make, and they take very little time to make. I found these cupcake liners at Wal-Mart for 1.00 a pack for one color. Like the picture below; first cut the sides of the liners. I have used double sided tape and hot glue for my trees, and the tape is easier to manage. If you mess up you can easily fix it.
I found these Christmas tree cones at AC Moore. Last year I made my own cones out of cardstock paper, which is the picture below. They were not as sturdy as these, but they looked the same. I started at the top and measured how much cupcake liner I needed and cut. And there you go: simple and affordable Christmas Décor!
