Christmas Gifts for Teeny to make

I always liked to make gifts for Christmas presents, when I was a teen so here are some ideas.

Kool Aid Lip Gloss

Materials: 1 tub petroleum jelly (vaseline), 1 pkg of kool-aid drink crystals – whatever flavour you want, or you can make a few, lip gloss containers, labels printed out on sticker paperm scissors or 1 inch paper punch

Put about 1 cup Vaseline in a microwave safe bowl
Heat the Vaseline in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each heating. It took me about 7-8 minutes to melt each batch of Vaseline. It will be liquid when it is fully melted. It will be very hot! Make sure you wear gloves or oven mitts
Take out of microwave and stir in Kool-Aid drink crystals until desired color is reached –use the whole package for each batch. Stir until the crystals are completely dissolved.
If starting to solidify you can heat again for another 30 seconds – skip this step if it is still liquidly.
Pour into your lip gloss containers and leave to solidify – a couple hours Repeat this whole process if making more flavors.
Print out labels on sticker paper.
Use either a 1 inch punch, or scissors, cut out the circle labels and attach to your lip gloss container.
Give to all your favorite people, but remember to save a few for yourself too!
Print Out these if you like!

No-Loom Beginner Bracelet

Materials:  the teeny refill bands (like super-small rubber bands),     C-clips (super-small plastic clips that look like ‘C’s, wooden craft stick (or something to hold spots), plastic craft organizer to keep your super-small supplies, Rainbow loom bracelets kit

Gather materials and lay out the colors you’ll want to use.
Place one band inside the C-clip.
Place the first band inside a Popsicle stick.
Grab a second band new color.
Pinch band two and slide it under the first band.
Pinch the two ends of band two together.
Slide your finger through it and take the stick out of the first band.
Slide the stick through the second band, just like you did in

Repeat, repeat, repeat!
And when finished, join the ends with the C-clip. Easy peasy.
