Chronicle Craft: Handmade Holiday (+ a free project!)
There’s something so wonderful about using your own two hands to create something special for those on your holiday gift list. I recently got together with some of my fellow crafters here at Chronicle Books to do just that and make projects from an exciting upcoming title, So Pretty! Felt by Amy Palanjian. The book is filled with super stylish projects readers can make with felt including necklaces, cupcake toppers, and headbands, but we had an eye toward the holidays.
Stephanie, who works in the marketing department, and Laura Lee, from editorial, made super cute heart ornaments.
Here’s Allison and Michelle from the design and production departments working on their felt holiday gifts, and Marie, in editorial, working on hers.
Claire, another crafty editor, worked on the super precious “Magic Mushroom” project and Michelle made the fashionable “Spiral Necklace.” I wish I was on her Christmas list!
If you’d like to show off a little creativity with your holiday gifts, turn to the outside of the box with the “Gift Bows” project from So Pretty! Felt like the one Marie made. Get the full project and instructions for the So Pretty! Felt Gift Bows here. Happy Handmade Holidays from Chronicle Books!
