Teacher Christmas Gifts

Hi there. Only a couple more days!!!! I don't know about you, but I am totally not ready...lol. Yesterday was my oldest DD's 8th birthday, so I had to get through that before I could go on more. We had a party for her this past Sunday, and then family over last night, oh and the cupcakes for school of course. NOW I am ready to function for the next event. As of this moment, I am no where near done wrapping, or planning my meals for Christmas. BUT like most things it will all fall into place. Well today at the Creative Belli Challenge, we wanted to spread some Christmas Cheer. Don't worry we won't sing...well at least not for you to hear...lol. Stop on by and see what the DT ladies came up with the spread Christmas Cheer. Here is what I am sharing today. These are the teacher gifts my girls are giving to their classroom teachers. I filled these containers with Cinnamon Pecans I made with my girls a couple weekends ago. I started with these Crystal Light containers. I ran them through the dishwasher, and let them dry completely. Then I took some ribbon and wrapped it around the container. The ribbon is from Imaginisce. Next I stamped the tree images, which is from CTMH. I colored them and added some stickles and liquid pearl (haven't pulled that out in a while). I trimmed them down, and layered them onto the PP (which is from Imaginisce). For the tags, I used my Cricut to cut the tag on green CS. Then I ran through the PP to make a trim around the green PP. Last, I added the little bows...which are store bought...lol.
Well, that is it for now. I hope Santa brings you lots of papercrafting goodies!
Be sure to stop by the Creative BElli Challenge and share some of your Christmas creations with us.
