I wanted to share one of my favorite Christmas gifts I made this year. I made several things and took photos, but during all the Holiday Madness I didn't have the time to share here. (See what I did there? - it's capitalized because I think it should be a thing. Real, true, pre-defined period of time that we all recognize.) So, alas, I am going to share them after Christmas. I'm still loving the Christmas crafty goodies as I'm known to do, so I'll just go with it.
This gift was for BD's Grannie. I love to make her gifts and buy her books. :) It works out well for me, hopefully she likes it! :)
I used the same photo that was from our Christmas cards to fill in this CUH--UTE 6x6 tray from 7Gypsies. It was so fast - I promise I made it in 30minutes! (And 5 of that was tying that bow on top, trying to get it to look like I wanted.)
I used my SSS Candy Cane Christmas card kit. The patterned papers/cardstocks were in the kit, I simply trimmed them to the proper size and adhered. I did stamp/white emboss the sentiment on the middle square, using the Candy Cane stamp set prior to adhering it. The candy canes were stamped from that set and fussy cut, as well as the holly leaves. I added the sweet TINY bow that came in the kit on top of it all (and it covers up the junction of it all). The red ribbon is some Offray I had left from prior projects that I wrapped (and adhered with my ATG tape gun) around the edges, then tied at the top. It just turned out really, really sweet and Grannie loved it! :)
I am submitting this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes and Crazy 4 Challenges "Clean and Simple" Challenge this week.
