Today I want to share with you a card that I made for my eldest daughters Teacher. The class parent was collecting money for a gift for the teacher and I offered to make a card to go with the gift. I also had some Christmas gift tags to go into the gift as I always love giving a handmade gift rather than just money. Gift tags are always a more practical gift as they can use them straight away for Christmas.
Here is the card I made.
I used the Water colour pencils for this project and enjoyed colouring this card especially as the Teacher is a very creative teacher that coordinates our Art Show every second year.
I stamped the image 3 times, twice on Whisper White and then the third time was on another piece of Whisper White then fussy cut it out and popped it onto dimensionals after I coloured it.
The hamper was given to her on Wednesday but I wasn’t able to be there unfortunately but have since heard that she loved the card.
If you’d like to order any of these products please check them out on my online shop and if you use the hostess code of the month then I will send out an extra special thank you to you for your order.
For my final project from my 12 Days of Christmas Series I have the Secret Santa Gift that I made for our Team Christmas Party.
I used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series papers for my inspiration. I made a little bonbon and some half bonbons to put product and chocolates in. I used the labels I’d made on previous projects on the bag and the Jar of Malteasers. I purchased the little jar from Kmart.
I also make up a little box for some ribbon that uses no adhesive and can fold flat. The box was originally made by Sam Hammond from Pootles.

Day 11 is a cute little project that is really quick and easy to put together especially if you are short on time.
I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make this little bag and punched holes in the top for the ribbon.
I popped in some of the Raffaello balls into the bag as a sweet treat. I have used the Pretty Label punch on this bag and then punched it in Garden Green and cut it in half and layered it underneath. I then used dimensionals to adhere it onto the bag.
Day 10 brings two passions together for me. Essential Oils & Papercrafts.
I made the tag using the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Layering Circle Framelits. I also used the Pretty Label Punch to make the Gold Foil topper with Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched Ribbon. I have made some Bath salts with my Essential oils. I used Himalayan Salt, Epsom Salts, Bicarb Soda and some Young Living Lavender Essential Oil. This would make a great gift for the hard to buy for person that loves baths.
If you are interested in Essential oils you can contact me for further information. If you’d like to sign up to have an account then you can do that here. Signing up is a great way to get a discount on all your oils and to kick out those chemicals that are in the home. I’ve been using these oils for over 12 months now and am slowly changing over the chemicals in my house for natural products.
Day 7 brings these cute little bon bons made from the Year with Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I had a request for some boxes for a Christmas table that would hold 2-3 chocolates. This is what I found on YouTube. I love these little boxes so much that I’m going to make some for my Christmas table this year.
These are just two designs of from the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper which is on the retiring list till its sold out.
I found a video on how to make these cure bon bons at Intertwyne Designs. They are so cute and I had to make them. There is a also a box that she made to fit 4 of these into.
