Christmas Ideas

Some more Christmas ideas using mostly Stampin' Up supplies.
The first one is a fun way to give a little gift of chocolates. A tp roll covered in woodgrain paper (Autumn Harvest?), the "knot hole" is a large oval punch in Early Espresso. The owl punch was made into a Santa owl with the hat from the retired Cold Play. The band was embellished with Polar White Flower Soft, added a pompom to cap. Added some branches using the Two Step bird punch. Filled plastic bag with Christmas chocolate mints and tied with olive taffeta ribbon.
The second used the little fairy from the Little Bit Of Magic set. I added a sparkly Santa hat by Jolee's and some Dazzling Diamonds to wings. Fo the sentiment I used the same sentiment that I used on the third card shown here. It seemed to go so perfectly with the one on the front of the card. This card is much more sparkly in real life.
The third is a tag fold accordion style card in Pacific Point using the retired mini hostess set Snow Buddies from last season.
