Yesterday we shared with you some great last minute holiday crafting ideas. Today we have one more for you by the incredibly talented Wendy Vecchi. This festive bag is the perfect way to package a gift for any special someone in your life. Along with this inspiring photo, Wendy also included a supply list so you can make one of your own! Here is everything you need to create this delightful gift bag:
We’re now into the final countdown – Christmas is almost here! While we all aspire to be the epitome of organization with our decorations hung, cards in the mail, and presents neatly wrapped under the tree, sometimes life gets in the way and you find yourself in need of some serious last minute inspiration. Don’t worry bloggers, Ranger is here to help!
We’ve been scouring the web for project ideas to help you avert any last minute holiday crafting crisis! Take a look at a few of the things we found:
Yesterday we showed you some great ways to wrap up your holiday gifts. Today, we have a technique from Claudine Hellmuth. In this tutorial, she shows everyone how to use her Creative Layers Foam Stamps with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Gesso to create a fun gift wrap out of either brown craft paper or just an old paper grocery bag!
You can submit photos of your gifts until Thursday, December 20th at noon eastern, then we will choose 1 lucky winner at random to receive a grab bag of Ranger products. (The photos in this post show you a little sneak peek at what’s in the prize pack!)
Well, the holiday season is in full swing now. As you finish up (or start!) your shopping for your gift list, it’s time to start thinking about the perfect way to wrap it up before placing it under the tree. A few of our Ranger elves already started to work on the perfect packages. From boxes to bags to wrapping paper, take a look at some of the creative holiday gift decorating we came up with! Like something you see? As always we were sure to include a materials list so you can make your own!
Who says Tim’s tag techniques are just for tags? Not us! Every month we’ve been showing you our interpretations of Tim’s 12 Tags of 2012. Now that the holidays are upon us, we realized that those same great techniques could be used to make awesome ornaments! Take a look at some of the gorgeous ornaments Team Ranger came up with using the last year of techniques:

Well bloggers, it’s finally here: Tim’s final 12 tags of 2012 have been posted. What a fun year it has been! As usual, we sprung to action to create our own projects inspired by Tim’s December edition of 12 tags of 2012. Take a look:
Special Wishes Tag by Teresa Natividad
First up we have this fun winter tag by Teresa Natividad. This tag frames a fun Snowman Mini Blueprint stamp with a die cut Metal Foil Tape Sheet. It really shimmer and shines while wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.
Can you believe it? December is here already! (Well, tomorrow it will be.) For most of you that means the holidays are right around the corner. For us that also means that it is time for some new web features on RangerInk.com, so we have a few great features that will help you add some homemade goodness into your holiday celebration!
Unsurprisingly, the December issues of Crafts ‘n things is all about the holidays. Among all the amazing holiday themed projects packed into this month’s issue, you will find a wonderful shimmer & shine holiday keepsake box created by Ranger’s Marketing Director, Bonnie Egenton.
This project combines an Inkssentials Metal Foil Tape Sheet, Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades Christmas Background Embossing Folder, and Liquid Pearls to create a fun, three-dimensional surface atop this festive keepsake. Take a look:
If you weren’t able to join us at CHA this summer, we are bringing a piece of the show to you. We have just added Debbie Tlach’s Melt Art Holly Pendant, which was this year’s Make-It-Take-It project at CHA Summer 2012, to our projects section.
