DIY Felted Christmas Sock Fobbie

I love decorating DIY Fobbies. I'll often wonder the scrapbooking sections to find decorations. I found this cute felted Christmas sock to use. I marbleized this one with some cranberry Tim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks first and then glued the sock down. To make it more decorative I used red tulle and accented with some elegant ribbon. I also used a pre-printed box so no wrapping paper was needed and the box can be reused.

One of my favorite ways to decorate a DIY Fobbie is with a marbling look. I like to use the Tim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks. I then cut a pinecone in half—they are very hard in the center—and glued gunned it in the center. I picked out ribbon that had pinecones and holly. I also placed some fake holly berries and greens under the Fobbie and cinched it down to hold it in place.

I wanted to give my brother a new toolbox. I of course bought some tools to put inside, but I thought it would be fun to decorate the box with different items for visual impact. I used glitter wire stems and attached a shop towel, screwdriver, wrench and then threaded nuts on the ribbon for more effect. It makes it more engaging to unwrap and feels like a lot more presents!

At the holidays it seems like I'm always going to a party, or I want to bring a little something to a friend or neighbor. I go to a local discount store and pick up a nice loaf pan and bake a yummy banana bread or carrot cake. Once it cools I wrap it in clear plastic wrap and put it back in the pan. Then I Fobbie wrap it for a beautiful presentation. Now they can enjoy the bread as well as have a new loaf pan!

We all love to pick out the perfect gift for our friends and family. I have a friend who likes rock climb. I happened to be in the store with her one day and noticed that there was flat climbing rope. I looked perfect to take the place of ribbon through a birthday Fobbie®!  I bought a couple of feet and a carabiner and wrapped her present with her favorite sports theme.

I really like texture. While I was shopping one day I came across these colorful waffle weave towels. I knew I would be going to a friends housewarming party in a few days and thought they would be a nice gift. One of the great things about gift wrapping with the Fobbie® is that some things just look great as they are. The towels were so colorful, I thought why put them in a box? So I just used a Best Wishes Fobbie® with some ribbon and then also wove in an accent ribbon for extra color.

Everyone loves their pets. My sister's dog Max is her sweetheart. She had sent me the latest picture of him and I thought it would be fun to use it in a picture frame Fobbie®. I got a nice metal dog bowl and a bag of chew bones that I wrapped in plastic and placed them in the bowl. I found the cute dog bone ribbon and created this special, but delicious gift for Max.

Do you have a seamstress in your life? I enjoy wrapping with fabric. It looks lovely and it's reusable. More and more I am on the hunt at estate sales, or the bargin bin at the local fabric store. I stock up and then have it available for a quick gift wrap. I fell in love with this tie-dyed fabric. I took a picture frame Fobbie® and a piece of felt and some batting and created a little pin cushion. I then added the colorful pins. A soft tape measure worked perfectly instead of ribbon. Tailoring this gift—so to speak—became a gift within a gift and gave the package a real wow factor.

I often find myself cruising the isles of craft stores looking for interesting things to use on a Fobbie®. While strolling through a sewing isle I saw this bejeweled appliqué  that you would normally sew on a pair of jeans. I thought it would make a lovely addition to a DIY Fobbie®. I wrapped the box with the paper and then I glue a section of the paper on the Fobbie® to match and then glue gunned the jewels on top making an elegant presentation.
