It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

...Christmas!  I have been scrapping our Christmas memories like crazy this past week.  Fun to capture the small moments from this year and last year that lead up to the big day!  I still have some errands to run, food shopping to do and wrapping of presents, but it is all good!  I am ready for family time and a break from work!

To celebrate the season, I made a very easy project that could be a gift for a neighbor, daycare provider or school secretary!  I think handmade gifts are special and come from the heart! 

Here is the project.  It was heavily inspired by the Pottery Barn gift catalog!

I love candles and the tapers are so pretty when wrapped up like this!  I also dressed up a simple box of matches!  Here are some close ups!

The sleeve for the tapers was super easy to make!  I just matted the gold patterned paper...don't you love that texture!  I cut the rectangle with all the typography from a sheet of Teresa Collin's paper!  Wrap it with hemp and and a bling button and you are done!

The matchbox was also easy with the use of my Scor-it!  Measuring and creating exact folds really helps this come together!  I layered some tags and chipboard to add the sentiment!

Placing a red berry pick really adds dimension!  See what I mean!

I used the beautiful Noel line from Teresa Collins Designs to make this!  I really love how graphic, yet soft and rich this collection is!  Too much pattern can make me crazy and I think this line is perfect!  You will see lots of it this next week!

I will be sharing Christmas stuffs everyday this week.  Well, I will try!  LOL!

Happy Saturday all!
