Little Gifts (No SU)

For the ladies at work and Cameron's teacher I put mint chocolate bells inside of a wire whisk and wrapped it in a cello bag. The tag says "We Whisk You A Merry Christmas". I guess there is a little SU on this. I stamped the bird from It's Snow Time on the tag.

For the kids in Cam's class I made Rudolph's red-nose repair kits. The poem says
Rudolph guides ol' Santa's sleigh,
His nose glows red to guide the way.
But if it flickers on Christmas night,
Just use one of these replacement lights.

Rudolph was made with the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge. The 'noses' inside are sour cherry balls.

Santa Containers

I have a stash of Crystal Light containers in my "to be altered some day" closet. I pulled them out Saturday to make these for my niece and nephew. I filled them with candy and pens/pencils.

No stamping involved for this project.

These are the larger CL containers (they hold 6 tubs of CL I think).
The red paper to go around it was cute 6 x 9.
The white strip down the front is cut 1.5 x 6.
The belt is 1 x 9.
The black buttons are 1 inch circle punch.
The buckle is 1 3/8" square punch with a 1 inch center punch.
The red circle for the lid is a 2 inch circle punch.

I used a little White boa I found in the craft store for the trim on the bottom. The adhesive I used was the Scotch Tacky Glue (love that stuff!). I used stickers for the names on the lid.

Christmas Card

This years Christmas card

Stamp Sets: Lovely As A Tree, It's Snow Time, The "Happy Holidays" was a former hostess set that I can't name off hand right now.

Ink: Handsome Hunter, Basic Black, Chocolate Chip, Craft White.

Markers: Brilliant Blue, Yo Yo Yellow, Real Red, Only Orange.

You can't tell from photo, but the snow on the ground is Aleen's dimensional craft paint. I used various off brand cardstock because I waited too long to decide what I was doing to order SU paper for it. Snowflake brad and some hemp complete the card.
