Good morning! Ok...I just have to share. Lucas slept 6 hours straight last night (which means that I got the most sleep that I have gotten in 3 months (because that last month of pregnancy was not very fun LOL))!! Yep, I feel like a new woman!! Normally his "long" stretch is 3 hours. I can't complain too much because he will just wake to eat and then go right back to sleep. But a little bit more sleep at one time feels like such a luxury! :-) Ok, now back to my regularly scheduled programming...
I have quite a few gift containers to share with you today! All of them feature Bella BLVD yummy winter and Christmas collections!
My second project is another gift card holder. I have to say, I give more gift cards away to those outside my family than anything else. They really are perfect...easy to mail and customizable to the recipient!
This time, I created a stocking shaped gift card holder. I didn't have a punched out heart (like I did on the ornament) to keep the flap closed so I used a magnetic closure. This stocking also features the new Christmas Countdown collection.
For my next project, I decorated a large tin. We also give away homemade goodies (like cookies, fudge, & candy) and I like to decoarate various tins (I collect them throughout the year) to package them in.
My final projects is a decorated bakery style bag...perfect for holding a set of handmade cards! I started with a strip of patterned paper and then added coordinating stickers (all from the Winter Wonder collection) to create a quick and easy package!
Oh, and just for fun...I added some glitter to that sweet snowman! :-)

Have a great day! Hugs, Laurie
