Christmas Gift Giving Ideas

Good Morning Trendy Twiners!!
Jessica here from Chick-n-Scrap with 2 more Christmas gift giving ideas using the 

For my first project I used a Medium Cotton Bag and came up with this...
So cute right? 
I used the adorable Unity Stamp~ You Melt My Heart and stamped it onto my cotton bag using Stazon Black Ink. Then using some Candy Cane Trendy Twine and a needle, I sewed the twine into the heart and on the scarf in a very simple up and down pattern. After coloring the hat using my copic markers, I added some Christmas/Xmas red Stickles as well as some Orange Peel Stickles to his nose. I pulled out the string that comes with the Cotton Bag and threaded more of the Candy Cane Trendy Twine through the opening and tied knots to the ends of each side. To finish up my project, I added a cute die cut tag and filled the bag with some chocolate nuggets.

For my next project, I had to make some more Candy Sticks using the Skinny Candy Bags. These are perfect for handing out and I ended up making 25 of these for my son's class :)
I filled each of the Skinny Candy Bags with some red and green M&M's and sealed them shut, making sure to leave about an inch or so clear on the top. Then using my Cameo and a file I picked up in the Silhouette Store, I cut all the pieces for my reindeer toppers. I stamped his eyes using a Peachy Keen Stamps set, added some white gel pen doodles and made his nose sparkly with some Christmas/Xmas Red Stickles. To attach the tags to the bags, I tied some Candy Cane Trendy Twine around the tops of the bags (leaving some of the clear bag top to show) and then tied the tags in a bow on top.

 I hope you  have enjoyed my projects and will give some of these gifts a try!
