A few quick gifts
















Well I managed to get a few things accomplished today, one of them being chocolate chip cookie dough truffles- they are fabulous, some for us and some to give away. I also made some semi-crafty stuff, I altered a box I picked up at Michaels using paper from My Mind's Eye, I also used the All Decked Out stamp set from CTMH and some brads also from CTMH for earmuffs. The snowflake(ctmh) I cover in brown glitter and I added a couple opaques from ctmh as well. I cut the letters out of my Cricut for the top. This box will house some homemade oreos for my father-in-law. The other container is a recycled gelato container(thanks Holly) also covered with the same paper, and snowlake except I used silver glitter on this one. The sentiment is from CTMH stamped in Twighlight on Colonial White paper but highly distressed with Vintage photo distressing ink. I also added a simple little flower I hand rolled and the flourishes are from Recollections. I am going to fill this jar with homemade peppermint foot scrub.
