Happy Saturday! I'm pleased to be sharing a project over at My Craft Spot today - and am sharing it here on my blog too! These little sour cream containers are so quick and easy to put together and make a wonderful alternative to a bow on a gift. I've also made a number of pouches to put on my colleagues desks as a special Christmas treat - with Lindt chocolate balls tucked inside. (Of course, I always sample them to be sure they're good... and they are!! Still, perhaps I should try another just to be certain.)
To put these pouches together, I used patterned paper cut to 6x6. (Click HERE for a tutorial on how to make these pouches.) I used My Craft Spot's Jingle All the Way stamp set for my Merriest Wishes sentiment. The tags and scalloped shadows were then punched with Stampin' Up punches. The little stamped candy cane is from the same set. So cute!
To finish things off, I used Peppermint Stick baker's twine tied in a bow. Easy peasy and a delight to give and receive!
Be sure to check out the My Craft Spot shop HERE. There are 14 different Christmas stamp sets from which you can choose!
I've been wondering whether or not to add the Silhouette Cameo to my Christmas wish list. I've seen so many amazing projects created with the Silhouette so am really starting to feel I "need" one!! My talented friend, Linda, has a Silhouette giveaway going on over at her wonderful blog, The Paper Boutique. I've got my fingers crossed - but I'd also be excited if you entered and won too!
