December Blog Hop

Thanks for joining out blog.  Hope you enjoy all the creative ideas everyone has put together for you.  All the ladies are awesome so please check them out!!  Thanks for visiting my blog. 

 I love our December theme of gift ideas.  I used a 12 x 12 piece of designer paper for the container and a strip of designer paper for the top cut at 6 x 3 1/2.  Added a scallop trim to the topper.  Punched a hole through the topper and container.  No glue or tape required.  Just scoring - all the ladies in my MOPS craft night loved these.

Below is a side view.  Hope you like the idea.  And I love the owl paper from last year's Stampin' Up theme.
Had paper left over so thought I would use it.  My grand children loved the owls.  They get to help with a craft each year and these are so easy for them to make.  

I have a thing for snowmen so the current snowman set from Stampin'Up called SNOW DAY worked great for this tag.  He fit well in the framelits from Stampin' Up also.  Hope you like him.

Look how nicely the Thirty-One container works with the tag?  I am using a lot of these containers as my gift containers this year for Xmas.  Fits my snowman theme perfectly.  

I am using these cute Thirty One gift containers for many of my Xmas packaging.  No wrapping paper - yahoo!!  I just recently signed up as a consultant for Thirty-One and just love it so check out the catalog HERE.  If you are interested you can e-mail me at  

Look at the cute snowmen all around the container?  I just can't resist anything with snowmen.

I always pull out my old sets during the holidays.  I just love these cute little "marshmallow" snowmen.  They will work great as candy wrappers for little treats at my Xmas gatherings this year.
