Oh Christmas Tree!!!!!

Well it seems that Christmas is less than 24 hours away--the family fun starts tonight!!!!
I have one last Christmas project before I take next week off for some vacation and focused craft time!  I made this with mini chocolate bars, some floral foam, and a whole lot of hot glue.  I 'potted' it in a spray painted pot I got for a Buck.  I must admit this took 5 bags of candy but the reaction was worth it!

May you all be richly blessed during the holiday and your new year be bright!

Super easy gift wrap Idea

All you need is a half a sheet of 12x12 pattern paper, a clear pail from Michael's (2.00), and a hot glue gun!  Simple right.  I also crimped the paper before I put it in the pale to give some added depth--
I am using these as stockings for my nieces and nephew

Hope all your last minute things are getting move from the to do to the done list--Make it a great one!

Treat bags revisited using Cricut Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge

Here is another way of doing a treat bag these are perfect to be filled with puzzle or activity books, card games, etc and give to the kids at the family functions--gives them something to do!

I also added a little holiday notebook and a Pezz!  Most of the items came from the dollar section at Target.
The cut is from the Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge (i used it on a card last week)  but the top layer in glitter paper (multi cut 2 or use deep cut blade)  I punched the name tag using a fiskers multi punch and wrote the name of the person to recve it on that--like a real present
Make it a great one

Make it a great one

Scrap Card Monday using Cricut Gingerbread Seasonal Cartridge

Ok it is really here--Christmas is this week and I am so glad I finished my holiday crafting this past weekend.  This is a super easy and super fast gift idea--
These are 'chinesse' food containers filled with sweets--they are printed with holiday motifs and they are at Michael's for a buck each--they are heavy plastic and could be used to wrap a number of small gift items. 
I used the Cricut Gingerbread Holiday Mini to make the tags from some scraps of paper in my scrap box.  To tie them to the gifts I used some twill ribbon from CTMH.

I have a quick and easy project each day this week--if you have last minute party favors or class room treats you need to make come back on Tuesday.  I will also share a number of other holiday items everyday this week. 
Just a reminder that next week I will be taking off from blogging--working on new projects and taking some much needed time off work!  This vacation was long overdue! 
Make it a great one
