Quick Little Christmas Gifts

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Friday to you. Two weeks till Christmas. Are you ready? I'm about halfway there. This weekend for me is going to be getting even more things completed (like some baking) in between my son's soccer games. Still need to finish Christmas cards, too. I'll be busy, busy this coming week. Even if it's a crazy time of year, I do enjoy it.

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some quick little Christmas gifts that you can still make for family, friends, coworkers, neighbors or anyone you need a little gift for. I made these little curvy keepsake boxes for some great friends who just happen to be stampers too. We went out for dinner earlier this week to celebrate Christmas and I wanted to give these special ladies a little something to let them know I appreciate them.

The curvy keepsake box can be made into so many cute little things and a little Santa suit box was perfect for the occasion. They didn't take long to make at all either. Which when you are making them last minute (not saying that's what I did, lol) you need quick and not very difficult.

To make it a little more interesting I used the Boho chic embossing folder to put some texture on the box. I also used the enamel dots from the Holiday catalog for the "buttons" on the jacket.  It's difficult to see in the pictures but the white part of the buckle is actually the dazzling details glimmer paper. Makes it look so awesome. I love it. 

Then I stamped a little tag and die cut it with the deco labels framelits to dress it up even more. It's all about the little details. Or so I believe.  Are you wondering what I put inside the box?  Wonder no more, I put a little hand sanitizer inside. One can never have too many hand sanitizers can they?

The one little detail that I absolutely love is the little wooden snowflake element on the tag. They are natural wood in color but I made my snowflakes white by dabbing (or really smooshing) them into a craft Whisper White pad. The finished snowflake adds the perfect final touch to this adorable box.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for even more great small Christmas gifts. Enjoy these next two weeks leading up to Christmas. It will be over way to quick and then we need to wait a whole year for another festive time of year.

Thank you for stopping by. See you soon.
