Easy Christmas Gifts & A Card

OK, let me start off by saying that I so rarely think of something outside the box that when I do I get overly excited, even if my project is horrible. Yep, tooting my own horn here...toot-toot...but I think this project actually turned out. Now that we have all that ego inflating talk out of the way, check out my easy Christmas gift ideas.

#1 (this is my toot-toot idea) - Reindeer Treat Bag.

This was so freakin' easy to make it kills me. I used the Top Note die for my Big Shot in Chocolate Chip for the reindeer head, the antlers are made from Swirls Scribbles die in Soft Suede (check out the die image below), the eyes and nose are made from 1/2" punch in Basic Black and 3/4" punch in Real Red with a little white highlight from the Uniball Signo gel pen. Next time I might even add a little glitter to his nose.

#2- Christmas Candles-

We made this one at the holiday gift class last weekend. We made some earings, nugget tins and ornaments as well. If I can get a good picture of those, I'll share.

#3- Grateful card

This is for a co-worker of mine who is moving on to different things. She will be missed.

OK, thanks for stopping by and enduring my horn tooting today!
