Holiday Gift Giving
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I don't know about you, but if I am going to make any sort of gifts for the holidays, I need to start now.  I was inspired to start with some little metal tins I found at my dollar store that were two for a dollar.  They are the perfect size to add a small treat.

The latest Memory Box release has several circular dies that would be perfect for the top.  However, I thought the Pine Wreath would be more practical for a sample since it could be sized to fit whatever containers you have.

To make the wreath, I first cut out a lot of greenery using the die.  It cuts four pieces of evergreen at a time:


I wanted there to be a bit of variation to the branches, so I colored some of them with a YG67 Copic marker:


Candy or nuts would be great to fill the tins, but I thought for a crafter friend, a bit of peppermint striped baker's twine would be a a wonderful holiday treat:


For a finishing touch, I added a few red rhinestones and a red bow to the tin. 

How about you guys?  Do you make any of your holiday gifts?  Have you started yet?






Con un solo Die y el resultado me encanto muy Hermosa la caja con la decoración del die.
