Christmas Gifts

Today I have some Christmas gifts to share. Last Wednesday we had a Christmas dinner party from my work. We always do something special for both owners. We bought them a gift, but each employee was also asked to buy a product and decorate it with a personal note. Of course I wanted to do a bit more than just adding a tag or adhesive label with a note. I tied a piece of burlap to the jar's lid and decorated it with tags.



The Tag Sale #5 and Damask Snowflake dies are two of my favorite winter/Christmas dies from Papertrey Ink. I just love the shape of these dies.



The 2011 Holiday Tags stamp set is another favorite as it is a perfect set to quickly make some gift tags.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado), Bazzill Basics Paper (Straw) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (2011 Holiday Tags, Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado), A Muse Studio (French Roast) | Twine: May Arts, Cards & Wishes | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Tag Sale #5, Damask Snowflakes, Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circle Collection) | Other: glitter cardstock, foam adhesive, burlap


Yesterday the girls had their Christmas dinner party at school and as usual I made a little gift for their teachers.



I filled a kraft bag with chocolates and hot chocolate mix. Quick and easy....made at the very last minute. The Kraft Bags Dots and Kraft Bags Stripes are available in my store Cards & Wishes. The bags are great for favors, treats and gift wrapping.



The lovely doilies can be found in my store too.

I'll be back with another card tomorrow. Have a great day, and thank you for stopping by.

    Beautiful job Ingrid! I love the tags/jar toppers green and red versions - clean and graphic and very special. And the kraft bags are stunning! Anyone would love gifts wrapped in such a pretty way.
