Wishing you a Merry and Magical Christmas

Hi Everyone
I hope you had a great Christmas yesterday.  I wanted to share a quick gift I made for some of the teachers at my daughters school.  She had about 30 teachers that she wanted to give gifts to so I needed to think of something quick, easy and cheap to give to them all.

Here is what we came up with.   I found this pin on pinterest. 

  And it included the adorable printable to make these.  I sized them down and hand cut them out.  Her teachers loved them.  The containers are portion cups in the 1.25 oz size and then the matching covers.   They were easy and cheap to make. I think I was able to get 13 cups out of each bag of m and m's.

Have a great day.

Are you Ready to See these products IN ACTION?
If you are hopping on over from Pinque Peacock you are in the right place, if not head on over to Pinque Peacock to start the day off right.  I of course altered something. I don't know why buy lately I look for stuff to alter. This project started out as a spicy trail mix container...LOL I think my husband thinks I'm crazy keeping his trash.
 So the container was sort of like a mini pringles container and I just wiped it out really well. I got these papers in a Christmas stack at Michaels.  The cover I used a scallop punch and then a circle punch to decorate it.  The container part I covered and then chalked the edges of the candy cane striped piece. I thought that paper was perfect to go with the candy canes in the flower.
 Here is a close up of my layered garden beauty and my cool bow. :) The bow is a 4 loop bow. I tied it normally then I did a second bow right on top from the long tails. I hope that makes sense. I thought it was a cool way to give a background to the flower. 
 I used a punch to make the mini tag and then I got the sentiment from Stampin up way back in the 90's LOL They were my sisters back in the day.  The ink was from Ranger.  That was it. I hope you like it. Don't forget to hop over to Miranda. If you get lost the whole hop is listed below.

Brr Time for snowman soup

Hi Everyone,
I don't know about your part of the country but here it is freezing cold!  -30 with windchill at times. I wanted to make a gift for my co-teacher at church and the cold weather was the perfect excuse for snowman soup.

I used a peanut butter jar for the base of it. Then I layered in some hot chocolate, mini marshmallows and crushed candy canes.  I took a strip of paper and wrapped it around the jar, then the snowman was on a piece of scrapbook paper and I just cut around it and adhered it on.  For the cover I used a punch and then added the stickers to spell out snowman soup

It was a super easy project and it only took about 20 minutes start to finish. Which was great cause I spent most of my time making the angel kisses jar. LOL  My co-teacher loved it.

I am entering this into My Craft Spot Neighbor gifts.

Angel Kisses

Hi and Happy Thursday!
It is my Design Team day over at Pinque Peacock. It worked out perfectly cause I knew I wanted to make something cute for Princess Buttercup's religon teacher.

So this jar started out as a vitamin bottle. I cleaned it out and scrubbed it and then it took a while but I got all the old label off.  The papers are from a Michaels Christmas stack. I used a border punch on the green papers. Then I chalked all the edges in red.   I wrapped the center with some red and green ribbon. The star was from a Michaels grab bag it was actually attached to a mini clothes pin but I ripped it off... LOL  I added a Pinque Peacock Angel pin. You can find them here.  Here is a close up of the angel.

 For the tag I used my cricut and I can't remember the cartridge but I cut 2 circles out of 2 different papers, ran them through the xyron added some Doodlebug twine and made my tag. I added the angel kisses with silver stickers.

Finally I cut a circle for the top of the jar out of the green snowflake papers.  Then of course I had to fill it with kisses :)

I am also entering this in a few challenges.

Die Cuttin Divas- tag it
