Christmas 2009

Well, I am finally posting my Christmas things from 2009. 
This will be a long post as I have several things to show you so, here we go!

First up, is a stamped tin of homemade gift tags using various sets from
PTI!!  I love how this turned out!  The tin is actually one of those gift card tins from Michael's that I bought after Christmas last year!  Just added some stamped paper and matching tag in Raspberry Fizz and Ripe Avacado!

Here is another closer view of the tags.  The backs are stamped with To: and From:

Alright, here are the repurposed/recycled jars that my husband gets some vitamins in.  We had literally bunches of these because we just couldn't throw them away especially when we realized that the label peeled right off!  Wash out and whlaaaa......cute jars to EASILY decorate!  This is where my wonderful hubby got crafty with me over the holidays!!  hehe  I had cut some patterned paper to fit the jar and he
applied them all to the jars for me!  This helped soo much (especially since the majority were for his coworkers).  The lid was embellished with punched circle and scalloped circle.

Next up are the bags I put these jars in for gift giving.  Just a simple brown paper sack
but embellished with a handmade card tied on with a bow.

Here's a close up of the mini card attached to the bag.

We're almost done........just a few more things to show you!
Here are the little cards that are similar to the above but I made these for my kiddos to put
in their mailboxes that I've mentioned before.  If you didn't check them out, here is the link.

Lastly, a card I made for a friend of mine in the stamping world.  Pretty simple but
I like how it turned out!

And another view:

Well, what do you think?  I really enjoyed making these holiday things this year.
Hope this gave you some inspiration for your gifts!
