Christmas Projects

I've been busy this week making gifts for my two grandsons to give to their teachers. The tea tin is from papertreyink
and it's filled with homemade hot chocolate mix. Here' a link
to Nichole's great tutorial . It works much neater and better to punch
two holes in the label and wrap the ribbon around the tin. Trying to
adhere a label to a cylinder doesn't work to well....ask me how I know.
The stamp set (Holiday Treats) is also from Papertreyink. Lately this has been my favorite online store....and I have my Visa bill to prove that statement. *grin*

Another project using Papertreyink tins...I just
love these little tins! Christmas Gift tags with decorated tin. I
covered the outside with patterned paper and added someMayArts ribbon to the lip of the tin lid using tacky tape.
Don't know where I found this idea to use the large scallop punch to make tags...think it was SCS.
These tags are quick and easy! Each tin holds ten tags.
I used the smallest snowflake stamp from the Snowflake Serenade Papertreyink set by stamping in Versamark and then heat embossed in silver embossing powder. Adhered that circle to a SU! scallop punched card stock. I added a circle piece of white CS to the inside for the "to/from", then added some red ribbon.
I have a few more Christmas gifts to share tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
