Day 7

Everyone needs a special handmade box with a very special gift inside.


I created this box out of last years Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper from the 2016 Holiday Catalog. I made the boxes different too for each family.


Inside an ornament that hubby and I created! Every Christmas tree needs a special handmade ornament! We used the silhouette to cut out gold vinyl. We found clear ornaments at the craft store and filled them with tiny pine cones. I used ribbon and a red bell from my stash of crafting stuff. To make the box a little more festive we filled it with pine cones.


We made two different designs the manger and the buck.


Sorry the picture isn't great we had a heck of time getting pictures of them.Then on the back we put the year, name, and on my brother's we added our first christmas since they just got married. This was the first time I attempted something like this and they were overall very easy and fun to make! We were going to make deer ones for our tree this year but the craft store where I got them can't keep the ornaments in stock. lol


Here is the card we put in the gift. I used the retired 25 Days and Stitched with Cheer Stamp Set. I made these different too for everyone.


Tags for outside of the package all made different too. I used the Santa's Sleigh Stamp Set, Santa's Sleigh Thinlits and retired 25 Days Stamp Set. The tags were all made out of my scraps of card stock great way to use up those scraps.

Day 8

We found some really cute Santa Pants.


Are these not adorable? We filled them with Christmas sprinkles to use on the holiday baking.


Here is the card we created to go in the gift. I used the Oh, What Fun Stamp Set and retired 25 Days Stamp Set.


The tag for the package. I used the retired 25 Days Stamp Set, retired Wrapped in Warmth Designer Series Paper, Big Shot, Layering Ovals Framelits and Banner Triple Punch. I made all the tags different too.

There is a tree at Central College that has those tiny little pine cones. Now, I know what to do with them. They are just too cute laying there to not use them. I totally didn't think about putting them in those clear ornaments let alone use them as package stuffing. What a great idea! I love the ornaments you made. I have one of those Santa pants bags - I think putting sprinkles for cookies would be a great idea plus the little bottles probably fit just fine in the legs. Thanks for some great ideas for next year.

The ornaments look great, but just love those Santa pants!! How cute!!

Chris I didn't either until I saw the idea for packaging on pinterest one day!lol Thank you!

Pam Thanks!
