Christmas CHEER!

I've been making little gifts off
and on for over a week but have not had time
to post.  So you will see a little taste of what
Mimi has been up to lately.
First of all, a bottle of champagne for
Christmas Mimosas!
I manage a medical practice with 10 providers
I gave them each a little miser for their Christmas
drink.  I created the printed tag on my computer using Word.
I cut the sentiment out using My Creative Time's Vintage
Label Die.  The tag itself is another one of My Creative Time
products and then I just cut out a circle with her circle
die to slip over the neck
of the bottle.  They looked great!
Next is a little gift for my office.
Recently I purchased a Silhouette Cameo
and this was a free project from the Silhouette store.
I made this for my desk!

I needed a gift card holder for my son.
The card was cut with my Imagine & my Gypsy
using the Tags, Boxes and More cartridge.
Now that I've created it once, it is saved
and I can decorate it for any occasion.
The reindeer is an Image from the Silhouette
Store and it cut BEAUTIFULLY.

If you've ever read my blog, you know I have a "thing"
for the hug candy.  Well here is another project
I made today.  I wrapped the card with slips
of patterned paper cut at 1x3 inches.
Then I made a base out of paper to lay
the candy in and give it a more finished look.
I used the Wilton Pretzel bags to slide
in the candy and finished it off with some
twine and a Teeny Tiny Tag die from My Creative
Time and I stamped it with a sentiment from
Cardztv Stamps!  I love this tiny set of words.

My last project was something I made for my co-workers
at the clinic.  I made 40, but they were so much fun!
I got the idea last year from Pinterest so after
Christmas I stocked up on the gloves.  In case you can't
see, the wrapper goes around a bag of microwave
popcorn.  I used a Peachy Keen Stamp on the wrapper
and chalked on some color.  Stretch one of the gloves
around the popcorn and tie a ribbon at the top
make the "hat".  I slid the extra glove behind the band
on the back side.  I stamped "To" and "From" on the
back so I could keep track of who I gave
them to.

Well that's all the crafting for me today.  Tomorrow
I will get my wrapping done and I should be good to go.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  Thank
you for stopping by my blog for some Christmas Cheer!
