I've got 3 little projects to share with you today, so grab a cup of coffee & settle down to share some fun holiday projects with me!
A small tablescape, pretty little packaging & a recipe apron card

Let's start with the little Tablescape I made...
This is simply the Rectangle Accordian Mini-Album w/Layers stamped with some religious Christmas stamps that I embossed with copper & stretched out to stand up. I only used the layers sporadically because I love green so much! (it's the Bazzill Canvas in Leapfrog with the layers in Copper Stardream Metallic)



On the back I stamped the word "Rejoice" & embossed it again in copper. I plan to place the among some little poinsettia's on my table this year. (the trees are from my stash)

Next, I made this fun little treat box out of the Peek-a-View box in "Lapis Laxuli' Stardream Metallic cardstock...
These boxes are super fun & easy to put together with the Tacky Tapes & are going to be so great to full with goodies for teacher or neighbor gifts!!
I attached the cute little snowman inside the bottom of the box & the mittens on the outside edge (all from my stash) to give it a little more dimension.
Isn't it fun!! I only filled it up a little bit, but imagine how fun it would be to fill it all up & have the snowman appear as the treats are gobbled up!!!

Lastly, I made another one of these great Apron-Recipe Cards...
I love these aprons! They make such great little "Gift" cards because you can totally add a few recipes for a sweet little "neighbor" gift! You could even make up a few extras for those "emergency" gifts!
 I couldn't resist using some kitschy little domestic images on this one & it simply "said" pearls to me, so I added the string of pearls as the apron strings!

That's it!
Hope you enjoyed my little projects!
Now, HOP on over to my Noelle's blog to see what little treasure she has in store for you! But don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the Christmas Card Kit!!
See you next time!

Those Peek A View boxes really have so much potential don't they? The apron recipe cards are new to me but are giving me lots of ideas as I go through the blog hop.

Your retro apron with the "pearls" ... gotta try and recreate that for my mom, as she always wore her pearls and apron in the kitchen - brought back so many fabulous memories for me. Thanks so much for sharing with us (and the snowman with the ear muffs? oh my goodness gracious - too cute for words!)
