Have You Been Naughty Or Nice?


This cute little naughty or nice checklist is a quick project that can be used as an ornament, gift card holder, or gift tag (scroll down for directions).

Today's project it brought to you by
our newest sponsor:

Normally I don't accept product sponsorships because I don't want to pimp out the blog just for some free stuff that I wouldn't otherwise write about. This one is different though because it is crafting supplies! Not only that but each month *I* get to choose which supplies I want. That means I can pick stuff for projects that I already had rolling around in my head. 

Alright, back to the project:


I saw these Black Crystal Twist Beads and thought that they would be really cute as "naughty coal". I made this into an ornament but it would also work as a fun gift card or money holder. Stick this to the front of a mini envelope so that it looks like they are getting nothing but coal for Christmas then they open it up and there is the gift card.

Start by printing out the naughty/nice card:


I left the boxes blank so you could check nice and use it as a gift tag if you want. I used a Sharpie to check "naughty" then cut it out and glued it to a piece of red cardstock to add a colorful border and make it sturdier. Then I just used some hot glue to attach the beads and a loop of ribbon on the back to hang it on the tree.
