The 12th Week of Christmas

Here we are...the 12th Week of Chrstmas. I've enjoyed creating for you each week. I hope you have enjoyed the tutorials as much as I have creating them for you.

This week I have more ideas for you for the Holidays. If you can't use them this year, save them for next Chistmas.
Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and and Happy and Safe New Year!

I found two glass containers I had from last Christmas and decided to use them as gift containers for candy for the paper person and mail person. Here's what I did with them.

I filled them with a variety of chocolate and peppermint candies

I Embossed the containers with White emboss power and Wild Wasabi Embossing powder. I used Versa Mark Ink to stamp the images on the containers. The tree image is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set; snowflake is from Serene Snowflakes stamp set
I thouht the Sweet Season Stamp set, Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White card stock, 1 " Circle, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle and1 1/4" Circle punch would fit just right for these containers and give them a festive look

I added a 1" circle to the inside of the lids using Multipurpose Liquid glue
I used Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere the punch outs to the container lids
Using Whisper White, Real Red, and Wild Wasabi card stock and the Large Oval punch and the Sweet Season stamp set, I made gift tags. I secured them to the containers with White Bakers Twine.
The last step in making these cute gifts was to add Whisper White 5/8" Organza Ribbon to the snowflake container and Real Red 5/8" Satin Ribbon to the Christmas tree container
Happy Stampin'
