Minc it Monday | Quick and Easy Gift Giving
Welcome back to Minc it Monday. If your life is anything like mine then it is crazy busy! Working full time as a kindergarten teacher, mum to two boys, wife , crafter…the list goes on right! So when it came to a special present for a friend’s birthday recently I needed something quick and easy but still pretty to give to her.
I turned to my trusty Minc and Neon words to come to the rescue.
As you can see I have used one of the Hawthorne Minc cards and envelopes and the Enjoy Neon word with the pink neon as part of her gift. I gathered some other pretty pieces from a local shop here in Brisbane and my present was complete.
As I mentioned I started with the Hawthorne Minc cards and some hot pink foil. I laid some of the foil over the entire front of my card and ran it through my Minc machine. It was really that simple, the card went from pretty to pretty spectacular in one easy step.
I love how the hot pink foil shimmers and shines on the card.
Next I grabbed my Neon enjoy word and threaded through the pink Neon wire, making sure to follow the instructions on the pack of the packaging.
The hot pink neon all lit up is really cool, giving a funky but sophisticated feel too!
I can’t wait to see my friend and give her her present. What looks like it took hours to create, took literally minutes…and in todays crazy busy life you really can’t beat that!
Dont forget you can find the Minc, the Hawthorne Minc cards and the Neon words and Neon wire at your local Jo-Ann and Craft Stores.
