DT Post by Marlene - Don't Snicker!


Hello My Craft Spot Followers!
Thank You for joining me today here at My Craft Spot. This is Marlene from ScrappinCookie.

As we all know we only have a few weeks left before Christmas - unbelievable, right? - and this year, like every other year I have VERY HIGH hopes to be able to make a few quick gifts for friends, teachers, co-workers, neighbors, etc. The only difference this year is that I have a NEW "partner in crime" - My Craft Spot's Christmas Friends & Neighbors Stamp Set!! This stamp set will make ANY Christmas gift idea for friends a BREEZE.

For my quick Christmas Gift today, I've used the "Don't 'Snicker'..." Sentiment and filled up a clear pillowbox with some "Snow" Confetti and a few pieces of Christmas Mini Snickers.

I created a band around the pillowbox and insert using papers from the American Craft Peppermint Express Collection. I tied some of Toadally Green Crinkle Ribbon and tied a small tag made with theTiny Tags Metal Dies with Red Jute String - available HERE at My Craft Spot.

I stamped the "Holly Leaves" Image and Border frame from the Ornate Labels - Christmas Stamp Set onto the smaller Ornate Label from the Ornate Labels Metal Dies. The "Holly Leaves" Image was colored in using my Prisma Color Pencils. I then masked off the "Snicker" phrase from the "Don't 'Snicker'..." Sentiment so I would be able to stamp it back in using Blue Ink.

I hope to have inspired you to take out your My Craft Spot Products and create a FUN and QUICK gift  for someone special this Christmas.
