Quick Christmas Ideas!

Just popping in, between shoveling our HUGE snow drifts, (pictures at the end) to show you a few quick gift ideas for your hostess if you so choose to give a sweet something!

First off - some decorated chocolate bars - easy and quick and pretty - who doesn't like chocolate?!

These were so quick when using Cosmo Cricket 6 x 6 paper pack.

Cosmo Cricket has the little white flap at the top of the page that you usually cut off - don't cut it off for the bars! Just wrap it around, fasten your Scor-tape to the white flap and it fits perfectly!

I used Waltzingmouse Stamps Holiday Labels 14  for the frame, cut out with Spellbinders labels 14 dies of course, and then a sentiment - which I don't know where it came from, a punched snowflake and a button!

Then a couple of notepads using Taylored Expressions Stamps What's Cookin' and matching dies and matching What's Cookin' chipboard!  These were wrapped in treat bags, twine and a button to fasten them! Super cute!

Some snow pictures - LOVE THE SNOW!! JOY!!
