Happy New Year Wishes!
I bet the hustle and bustle and Christmas pace at your place has finally came to a crawl? The wrapping paper has been cleaned up and the decedent dinners enjoyed, the laughter and joy with family and friends are now pleasant memories etched in your mind.
It really doesn't matter what gift you may have received but more significantly sharing the love with family and friends during the Christmas season makes it so much more a joyful and meaningful event. I've had a most pleasant Christmas with my whole family and enjoying quality time with my darling grandson, and meeting my niece's two beautiful baby TWIN girls for the first time. Audrey and Cameryn. What a blessing.
Here I have just one more quick post this Christmas week that I wanted to
share before the New Year arrives.
I took a few little tea lights that I had and used different colored ink by dabbing it on my dobbers and then onto the candle's raised flower, already on the tea lights. I then took my Crystal colored Ranger Stickles and applied it on top of each flower. This just added enough sparkle and bling to catch the eye. I then used lace and wrapped it around each of the metal liners. I have clear box's 3" x 3" x 1-1/4" box's that I purchased at a craft show this past year. I wrapped the candles in pretty tool netting, making a small bow on top and adding a few flowers, a large snowflake (with crystal colored Ranger Stickles added to the snowflake), a large leaf and large Christmas pearls. Lastly I added the little tag, stamped with Christmas Holly's to add a touch of a Christmas's feel to the box.
This makes another one of those quick and easy gifts.
Here you can see how it looked from the side.
And also a picture of my own Christmas money holder I made to give money
to my children this Christmas. Who doesn't like $$$$???? The snowflake also had Ranger Crystal colored Stickles applied to them for more glitz which is not showing in the picture. Seems no matter how hard I try to catch the glitz in my pictures it just doesn't happen.
Please do keep these two small ideas in mind for next Christmas, they may come in handy for you?
May all your days be Merry and Bright.
May your New Year's be filled with bountiful blessings....
Happy New Year!
