Holiday Party and Holiday Gift class

This is the box we made at our Holiday class this weekend. Holiday Lounge DSP and Real Red for the top of the box with white 5/8" satingn ribbon and the gift tag is a top note with another top note cut in half sahara sand and HL Dsp. real red 1/4 ' grosgrain ribbon and the scallop from movers and shakers backed the sentiment stamped from Holiday Punches in real red ink.

I added one of my new courd buttons from the NEW Occasions mini in real red to top it off.

I took plain white tissue paper and used my NEW Vintage rolller wheel and decorated my plain paper and turned into a beautiful vintage looking liner for my box to put my goodies in to.

This is my MOST favorite(I sound like my 8 year old she is in the stage where every song that comes on the radio, "oooh this my most favorite song!!" and can quote title and artist) gift set I have made this Holiday season. I am such a dork I just saw this was a Bulk Buy paper and now of course they are all gone. I have been hoarding these two sheets and my cusotmers just drooling over them. Live and learn.
This is the same box as above just with different DSP. Then the good ole fav of mine the Box in the Bag! Which can fit wonderful items like the small Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers and gels.All kinds of goodies can be given in this gift set duo!!

We also made the bread box at class.We had a visitor at class for our Holiday Party. My 17 year old daughter works at Hollister( a clothing store in the mall) and her Manager Robbie( a handsome 26 year old All American very well rounded young man) came and crafted with us. He was a delight. I think all of us enjoyed his company and he is a very nifty crafter.

This is a $1.00 christmas Mug I nought at a local store and added two candy canes, hot chocolate, marshmellows, candy kisses and chocolates. Wrapped it with the long roll of cello (shrink wrap minus the shrinking) and added the Stampin' Up! Exclusive Two tag die with the stamped setiment Sweet Holidays in real red ink and whisper white paper.
Perfect co-worker, neighbor gift, etc...

Inexpensive Holiday gifts

I bought a stack of these plain gift bags. The color was so cool, it matched the shimmery color in the Cocoa speciality DSP in the Holiday Mini Catalog. So I just added a strip of the striped DP and punched out a snowflake and put a half pearl in the middle of the snowflake to dress it up a bit with a little white satin 5/8" ribbon tied on top of the handle (you can't see it in this picture).
The tag is made with the Holiday Lounge DSP pg. 162)in the Idea Book and Catalog.
Holiday Lounge DSP is the top layer of top note layer, Sahara sand( bottom of the top note layer,remove preforation), ruby red(back top note)Just put the the two halves of the layered top note together wrapping white 1/4 " grosgrain ribbon around and stamped sentiment from Holiday Punches( Level 2 Hostess stamp set) Also added a jumbo eyelet and some rope twine to tie to the bag.

I love this stamp set called DEER Friends. It was a level 2 Hostess set from last year.
Punches- 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and the scallop circle punch alternating real red, garden green and chocolate chip.I put Peppermint Patties in the middle! I used our medium cello bags and stamped Serene Snowflake from the Holiday Mini catalog on the outside of them with white Stazon. The topper is the top note folded in half with a bow on the top!

This one is filled with candy canes. I am passing out all these goodies with my bio on them out at the Networking Connects Woman's group I joined last month at our Holiday luncheon on Thursday.
