Personable Gifts Under $20

Aloha my blogging friends! Sorry it's been about 1 week since my last post...things have been a little busy at the store. Thanks so much for spreading the word out about Pineapple Cove!!! The month has also been filled with excitement for me since I got to meet some of you in person...Linda from Simple & Sassy Creations; Teri from Big Ideas from a Little Girl; and Cami from Capture a Heart. If you guys get a chance, go check out their blogs because these girls are so talented and have wonderful projects to share!

For today's post, I wanted to showcase some of Kaisercraft products that are versatile and affordable. With gas prices continuing to climb, every little penny counts!! The other great thing about the Kaisercraft line is that they come in coordinating collections. You have 4 coordinating designer papers to choose from that are double sided, rub-ons and brads to match and a variety of bling rhinestones, pearls and flowers.

I made this cute Table Tidy (aka Pencil Holder) that would make a great gift, all for under $20. The Table Tidy is part of Kaisercrafts "Beyond the Page" collection. It's like naked wood that you can paint or cover with DP and decorate. Comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and is so fun to play with. We have clocks, trash bins, wall hangings, coasters, & albums to name a few. Come by the store to see the whole collection of shapes...the great thing is that you can decorate to match any decor you have around the house. For this project, I decided to use one of my favorite color combo Pink & Brown. The DP is from Kaiser's Pretty in Pink collection. The flowers and rhinestones are also from Kaisercraft.

I've never worked with acrylic paint before - so this was a fun project and it wasn't messy at all. I simply painted the wood with the acrylic paint, let it dry and then used Mod Podge to adhere the DP. Sealed the DP and paint with one last coat of Mod Podge, and then embellished with some ribbon and Kaiser Flowers and Rhinestones.

This will be on display as a sample in the store. I'll be bringing in the acrylic paint and mod podge with my next order. But in the meantime, you can easily find the paint and mod podge at Wal-Mart or Ben Franklin.

Happy Crafting..until next time!
