It's just like Santa's Workshop!

Have your ever heard the words,
"it's all in the presentation'?

Well I have and the words used
to come from my mother.  In honor
of her, I try and make sure when I give
little gifts, I make sure the packaging
is awesome.  If you have some
crafting supplies, you can make it happen.

Here are three cute things I've created.
The first is a Rudolph card with an
EOS lip balm for a nose.
It's what you call an easel card as
it sits up on a desk.
How cute is this?

This next one is a gift card holder.  When
you pull up the hat on Santa, it reveals
a gift card.  Isn't this a cute gift card holder?

My last one for tonight is a holder for
 a single piece of Ghirardelli chocolate.
I love that for they holidays they make
the little mint chocolate and it is
perfect in this file, however, if
you can't find it, I'm sure ANY
piece of Ghirardelli will do!  :)

I used a Cardztv stamp set called
Tiny Greetings to stamp two sentiments
with Whisper White Ink from Stampin
Up.  This and the gift card holder
were both cut with my Silhouette.

I hope you love my post tonight!

Just think - Christmas is only 5 days away!

Here is what I created for Beth's Birthday.

I just had to try out my new MINK so I could
foil my card.  Love the bling, don't you?

The numbers and the "sweet" were cut with my
Cricut Air!

I thought it needed a little more bling so I
added some Wink of Stella!

    Cardztv 3D Challenge - Giftbox/bag

    Welcome to my blog today!

    I am very excited to share with you
    my version of the Cardztv 3D Challenge.

    I made a bag "topper" to slide over the 
    two handles on a remade bag!
    Here is a closeup view.

    The Print and Cut Image you see of the
    two reindeer is from my Silhouette.

    It is on an action wobble and looks so cute
    in person!  I used the Cardztv Big Holiday Wishes for
    the Merry Christmas.  I just love these large sentiments.  

    This view shows you the premade bag that I picked
    up in a set of two for $1!  I spent just a little
    time to create the topper and BAM - my gift
    came together!

    Look at the other sentiments on this stamp set!

    What a fun, fun project!
    Here is a video I put together to share how
    this is made.

    Thanks for stopping today!

    Don't forget to join our 3D team and create your
    own entry.  Go to Cardztv to enter your project by
    December 24, 2015.

    Merry Christmas everyone!  The 3D team is taking a break for
    the holiday season.  Enjoy time with family and friends.
