Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Santa has come and filled our stockings with goodies! now we are off to dream of sugar plums until the young ones wake us up. Or if it is like last year- until I wake them ;) I hope you and yours have a blessed day filled with wonder and love!


Brown Paper Packages ......

Ok they are not brown but they are tied up with string! I love using my Scrapbook supplies to make gift wrap.

In the top photo I used Pattern paper to make Origami boxes to hold the little elf dolls from yesterdays post (there is a tutorial to make them in the Dec. 2007 Creating Keepsakes). I used waxy flax and scrappers floss to tie them up and added a cricut tag with a prima and snowflake button. The lager package is wraped in tissue then I used some BG frog paper as ribbon and tied it with scrappers floss and added a tag and frog charm.

Below is a cookie gift bowl. I got the bowl at the dollar store along with the pocket hotpad. There are 6 dozen cookies in there along with a cookie mix and a muffin mix and the recipes for the cookies. I added strips of paper to the mixes and on the index cards I wrote the recipes cards and of course some of thoe cute cricut tags!

I am pretty happy with these and think they make a nice gift!

Have you been using yourr supplies as wrapping?


A Very Bendy Post

I made these little elf girls for our friends little girls. This is my first attempt at them and I think I did a pretty good job! I first saw them at the Princess Nimble-Thimble blog - she makes the cutest little bendy dolls ever! check out her Etsy shop HERE. Then my friend Jackie was making them at Science and play and helped me get started on one. They took me about 2 hours each to make with the emroidery and everything. What do you think? Oh they are about 3 inches tall.
