Holiday Gifties

Happy Monday! As I mentioned yesterday, I had a very productive crafty weekend!! We got lots of rain here in the Aloha State (much needed here on Maui), so I enjoyed the opportunity to cozy up in my craft room and got lots of little giftables completed for the neighbors, coworkers and friends. I thought I'd share them with you today.

This first project is for our neighborhood families - I filled a clear paint pail with See's candies and wrapped a "belly band" around. The sentiment is from Verve's Snowflake Splendor, stamped on Kraft CS and layered on Imaginisce DP and textured Chocolate Chip CS, then cut out with my oval nesties. The top of the pail has a Marvy Snowflake punch with a button center and I added some ribbon to the handle. Turned out pretty cute, yeah? And so easy!I bought a few Border's giftcards for my coworkers and our babysitter and made these quick little giftcard holders using a template by Kristina Werner that I found on Two Peas. For the first giftcard holder, I used another Verve sentiment, this one from Ornamental Christmas. I used more yummy Imaginisce DP for these projects as well.These last two projects, Snowman Soup and Magic Reindeer Food, will be given to the neighborhood kids and I think they turned out super cute!! They're pretty self-explanatory so I'll let the pics do the talking. ETA: someone asked about the font I used for the Snowman Soup. It's Traveling Typewriter, I think downloaded from dafont.com.So that's it...Between my craftiness yesterday and my shopping on Saturday I think I'm mostly ready for Christmas. I only have a few stocking items to get for DH Joel and to pick up a spa gift certificate for my Mom (hmmm, sounds like I need to make a gift certificate holder....)
