More Christmas Favors and Gifts

Hello Stampers and Fellow Paper Crafters! 

Hope to find you all had a Merry Christmas. We've had a lot of rain this year but no snow << sniff >>, but fortunately most of our festivities were done the weekend before and it was nice and warm for everyone. 

This year I made cheeseballs and crafts instead of cookies and candies for my Husbands work, our neighbors, friends and family for Christmas.  First I wanted to share the cute little Mail Truck I made using a ScorPal template I found online.  I gave this and a gift card to the nice lady who delivers our mail. Uh, what would she be, our Mail Lady, Mail Person...I don't know!


Below centered is the adorable six pack of Rudolph's I made for my Brother In Law.  I got this idea on Pinterest, and thought it would go perfect with the cheeseball platter I made for my Sis! I would have loved to have done this for my Dad, Brother and Sister who all live out of town and in other states but shipping beer and cheese would have been problematic! So they all got handmade crafts and candy favors instead!   :o(   

I did the same thing here with Coco-Cola's which I packed in a gift basket filled with cheeseball, crackers, nuts and fruit for my Ex In Laws and our Neighbors.  They're so cute and simple, simple to make!!!!

 Ok, that's all for now folks, gotta run, until next time, happy stampin!

Christmas Favors and Tree Topper

Hello Stampers and fellow Paper Crafters!

I've been busy busy making cute little Christmas Favors for my Hubby's co-workers and Candy Bar Wrappers for my Step Brother and his Family and now that I have finished I thought would share.

First, these cute little treat holders were made using the largest tag of the Bigz Two Tags die. I attached a punch art Santa and a cute little Rudolph I made using the owl punch. Inside each favor are yummy little truffles wrapped in festive Christmas colors.  Just too cute and the perfect little something to accompany the cheese ball I am sending this year!    

Next are the Candy Bar Wrappers, these were super duper easy and I made them in a Santa, Mrs. Santa and two little Elves!  Real Red, Gumball Green and Basic Black Cardstock were used along with Silver Glimmer Paper for the buckles. 

Finally, my Tree Topper and let me say this picture does not do this thing justice!  This was made using the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and the matching stamp set Ornament Keepsakes.  Real Red and Crumb Cake Ink were used along with Glimmer Paper in Red, Silver and Champagne.   You may have noticed the big beautiful star in Red Glimmer paper, well, I made this 9" lovely using my new Cricut Expression 2, I love this thing!!!

Ok, until next time Folks...Happy Stampin!
