Countdown to Christmas …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you all had a wonderful day with friends and / or family.

I spent the morning (and evening before) preparing for the feast!  I do love to cook though so it was very enjoyable.

I was happy 2 of my 3 daughters and their families were able to come over and spend the day together.  Two of the little girls got to help (and learn) how to make a Cherry Cheesecake Pie.  It was a good day… and it turned into a huge slumber party, watching movies and just hanging out together!

My oldest daughter  called and we all wished each other a “Happy Thanksgiving”.  I am truly blessed.

Today I want to share a cute project idea that was posted by one of Stampin’ Up!s Demonstrator Training trainers: Donna G.

Got someone in your house who just can’t wait for Christmas? Help them count down the days by making this fun project.

I loved the look of the tags on page 13 of the holiday catalog (US/CA), so I made my tags exactly the same way.

For the containers, I used the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack. So easy—no cutting necessary!

To make the containers, apply the adhesive like this. (I recommend using Sticky Strip.)

Roll the container into a tube, then pinch one end closed. Add candy (or whatever you want to put inside), then pinch the other end closed in the opposite direction.

Attach the tag using a stapler, then adhere the button using a Glue Dot to hide the staple.

Twelve containers will fit nicely inside the Extra-Large Gift Box. To make the box look a little more festive, I wrapped Season of Style Designer Washi Tape around it.

Do you have a special way you’ll be counting down the days to Christmas?
