Gift Ideas

Today I am bringing you two fun projects which make great holiday gifts for your co-workers, teachers, and friends. The nugget tin is my creation and the junior legal pad wish list is the creation of my good stampin' friend JenB. Together they make a nice gift set if you are looking to give someone a little extra something.

The nugget tin is decorated with a strip of Ski Slope DSP and 1/4 inch Real Red grosgrain ribbon. A Top Note Bigz Die cut tag adorns the top. The tag was made from Real Red cardstock, the striped Ski Slope DSP and Whisper White cardstock stamped with an image from the Holiday Lineup stamp set. The tag is tied to the tin with 5/8 inch Real Red grosgrain ribbon. The ribbon is wove through the tag by holes made with the slit punch and then tied off in a bow. We covered each nugget with a slip of DSP too. :)

The note pad is so cute and really fun to make. I think I could become addicted to these. The cover is Real Red cardstock embellished with Ski Slope DSP and a Filigree brad with a Rhinestone brad in the center. As you can see in the picture to the right, more DSP is adhered to the inside cover and over the top of the legal pad. We used lots of sticky strip to make sure everything holds tight. The pen is stamped with Real Red snowflakes and rolled in clear microbeads. It is stunning. Jen found the instructions for both these projects on SCS. The pen can be found here and the legal pad is here. Tip: Copy Max will cut the junior legal pads in half for just $2.

Have a great day & Happy Stampin'! EdieB
