Holiday Hop 2012

Hello and welcome to our Holiday Hop! I love to do the hops and of course seeing what everyone else makes, but this month is such a busy time of year that I kept my projects simple. If you are just joining the hop there is a link below that will take you through the whole hop.
 My first project is a treat container that I think would be great for my nieces and nephew when they come to visit. I would feel them with little treats. I used the Petal Cone Die and made a Christmas tree from Lucky Limeade Card Stock. There is textured add to the tree with the Petals a Plenty Embossing folder and I sponged the card stock with Lucky Limeade Ink.  I used the Tasteful Trim XL Die and cut the double scallop in half to make the garland then I added ornaments with the Merry Minis Punch Pack in Real Red Glimmer Paper, Primrose Petal and Early Espresso and the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper. To make the ornaments a little more fun I added Crystal Effects on each one then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds on the Crystal Effects while it was still wet.

My next project focusing on gift wrapping. I love to personalize the gift wrap and packaging when giving a home made gift and our Kraft Gift Boxes can help you with that. I used more of the Candlelight Christmas Specialty Paper to make a bow and "wrap" the box. I say wrap because the box is still able to be opened with out havin to remove the pieces. I like to make my bows with brads to hold them together so the center of this bow has a nice sparkley Real Red Glimmer Brad. Simple yet pretty or at least I hope the receipent thinks so. This box will be for an ornament that I need to make for an ornament exchange we are doing at our church. Now moving on to our final project which can be for your home or to give as a gift.  

I love to do glass etching and it is so easy with our Big shot and dies. I used the Snow Flurry Bigz Die to cute out clear contact paper and used the negative image and applied it to the glass then etched the glass. After removing the contact paper you are left with the snowflakes. I tried to get a picture of the candle vase with an actual candle in it but it the snowflakes didn't show up very well so I just placed a piece of card stock behind it for picture purposes. I hope you enjoyed my projects today and were inspired to create something new.
Now I will send you of to Dawn's blog. You can get there by clicking on the next button below, but before you go I wanted to thank you for stopping by. Have a great day and enjoy the hop! Tonya
