Happy Christmas Eve


Today we awoke to a coating of ice on everything, but the temps are going up, rain will be arriving and it will be a messy day of delivering flowers!  But until then, I snuck into my craft room and dashed out this cute bread box I had been hankering to make ever since I saw it on Create With Me (Julia)'s blog.  You can see the original here at Technostamper.  Oh my goodness, how fun & easy these are.  I didn't stamp a thing, used all SU products--this is for my dad, so I am sure he'll give me my snowflakes back!


Mine is bare-bones basic, but you could gussy it up in lots of ways!

I also made a quick gift card holder from some more Basic Grey Figgy paper:


DSCF2675 The ribbon slides behind the HPH frame; sentiments from Flourishes & PTI were used, along with MS snowflake & edge punches!  The tricky part of this card was to make sure the ornaments were headed in the right direction on the DP!

Enjoy your holiday and blessings to all!

Both beautiful projects, LeAnne! I'll have to try that bread box sometime!

Hope you're feeling better! Be careful out there!

Hi LeAnne :-)
Both projects are beautiful as always. I really like the ribbon closure on the gift card. Sounds like you are feeling better if you're in the stamp room.
Many Blessings and Merry Christmas!
