December Blog Hop

Welcome to the December Blog Hop!  This month we are showing off Christmas ideas!  

Are you just coming over from Olivia's blog?  Weren't her projects fabulous?!?!!!

Are you ready for Christmas yet?  I'm not!  If you are looking for some cute last minute gift ideas, maybe for neighbors, mail carriers, teachers - I have some ideas for you!

First, I have a little Santa Treat holder.  

You could use any bottle for this, and fill it with whatever treat will fit in side.  To make the buckle, I used the Peekaboo Frames Bigz L die, and a strip of silver Glimmer Paper.

Look at this fun little box!  This little gift is for one of my neighbors.  I didn't have the fabulous Gift Bow die yet when I made this, so I made my bow using four Extra Large Oval punches, and the 1 inch circle punch.

This is what the gift looks like when you open it up.  The gift is a greeting card holder.

Your Christmas cards are held in place on the ribbon with these fun clothespins.  I just bought regular plain clothespins from the store.  Then I used our fun Season of Style Washi Tape to decorate them.  

Here's how fun it looks hanging on the wall!  I hope you've enjoyed my simple, last minute gift ideas!  

Thanks for stopping by!  
Next up on the hop is Stamping with Pearl.  She has some adorable crafty treats to share!


  1. Great ideas! I was just trying to figure out the best way to display my holiday cards, so the clothespins and ribbon idea was perfect timing! TFS!

  2. Super idea using the box and clothespins. I will share this idea with my class this week. Thanks!

  3. Love your idea with the giftie box and the clothespins. Think I will have my grandkids make some during our craft get together this weekend. Thanks for sharing.
