Holiday Cards and Gifts Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday! Welcome to the Holiday Cards and Gifts Blog Hop!

If you hopped on over from The Scrapoholic, you are in the right spot. :)

If you just happened to stumble upon my blog and found the hop, all the fun starts at
Glitter, Stamps, and Paper, Oh My

I am so excited to be a part of this hop! There are a lot of great blogs with some very talented ladies on this hop today and you aren't going to want to miss any of the fun. :)

For my project, I chose to make a gift, a little card and a matching gift bag. My son is participating in a secret Santa at church and this is what he will be giving away as his gift.

Isn't that snowman just the cutest? I love making these little nugget tins. So simple to do yet they always look so adorable and people really love getting them. I mean, who doesn't love getting chocolate right? :)

Here is how I made everything:

The Gift Bag is a plain red bag that I picked up from Wal-Mart. I took my patterned paper and cut a 2 1/2" by 7" strip and then used the Apron Lace border punch along the top and bottom and wrapped ribbon around it and attached it to the bag. The gift tag hanging from the bag was made with the Storybook Cricut cartridge. The scallop was cut out at 2 1/2" and the circle was cut out at 2 1/4". I punched a little hole at the top of the bag and hung it with some white hemp string.

The little card is just a 3x3 card to go inside the bag along with the gift. I cut a 1 1/4" by 3" strip of paper and punched the top with the apron lace border punch and layered it over the top of my sentiment.

The nugget tin is a piece of red cardstock measuring 10" by 3 1/4" and punched on both sides with the border punch. I then layered a strip of patterned paper measuring 10" by 2 1/2" on top and wrapped it around the tin. Not to tight though cause you want to be able to slide it on and off. I then cut out the scallop from Storybook at 2 1/2", circle out at 2 1/4" and the top circle at 2". I layered them on top of each other and stamped my image and attached it to my paper strip with foam dots. For the nuggets inside the tin, I bought a bag of Hershey milk chocolate nuggets and wrapped them with a paper strip measuring 1" by 3 1/4"

Voila! Super cute and easy gift!
