MCT 12 Days of Christmas, Day 12!!!

Before we go any further, I just want to take 12 seconds to freak out about the date and time right now.....Do you realize today is day 12 of the 12 Days Hop, on 12/12/12 at 12:12 a.m.!??? I don't know if I can sleep now after having my mind blown like that!!! WOW!!! I feel like a Sonic commercial right now, you?! hahaha!! ;)
HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT

Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! AND if you become a new follower of this blog, I'll give you a second entry FOR EACH DAY in the big drawing!!!

**VERY IMPORTANT** 
Please leave your contact information should you be the lucky winner!!

Here it is, the final day of the hop. I've had so much fun with these 12 projects I don't even want to stop. So here's what I'm gonna do. I'm not gonna stop. How about that!?? LOL I have so many ideas in my head and I hope to have time to get them all, well at least most, of them done, Christmas or not. Yay!

All righty then....today's projects are super quick and easy. First up are these sweet treats. The containers are dies by Lifestyle Crafts but I'm sure you can find them on Cricut cartridges as well. Very cute, aren't they! I used the MCT banner die from the Vintage Label set for my flag in the caramel corn.....
 

My Creative Time Fun Alphabet die set for "pop" and the starburst from the Build a Banner set. The adorable little popcorn is a Quickutz die. Real caramel corn is my own. ;)

Here's the banner flag. Computer font is by TwoPeas called Beef Broccoli.

...and here on the mini-bakery box. Adorbs! Also a Lifestyle Crafts die, this mini bakery box is perfect for giving just a little sumthin'-sumthin'. This one contains Frosty Snowball Cookies, aka Russian Tea Cakes, aka Mexican Wedding Cookies, aka Pecan Sandies. Even if they can't make up their mind what their name is, they are nonetheless delicious.

Sentiment from My Creative Time From Our Family to Yours stamp set, and the banner again from the Vintage Label and Banner die set.

Homemade cookies from my own kitchen.

And last but not least, I made this sticky note pad holder using the envelope die. This would be great tossed in your purse, next to your computer or by the phone for those quick reminders. I used the MCT Fancy Envelope die and the new stitched curly label die. The font is the Label font, also by MCT.

 I thought this cute little pencil made a nice touch on the spine.

Opened up, here's your pad of sticky notes inside. This die fits the 3x3 note pads perfectly. For the closure tab you could use almost anything - the banner die from the vintage label set, oval stitched die, build a banner tabs, teeny tag....really so many of Emma's dies are great for this. I chose the curly label because it matches the edge of the envelope, but you could flip the envelope the opposite way and use the straight side for the closure too if you wanted.

For the closure, I used a Basic Grey small magnet between the paper layers, and the opposite magnet between the envelope layers. (If you look hard, you can see the impression of the circle where the magnet is on the inside front cover.

See how simple?! I merely trimmed an inch or so off the fold tabs and slipped in the last couple of sheets to hold it in place.

I hope you've enjoyed hopping with us these past 12 days!!! I have had a BLAST making fun, easy, and quick ideas to inspire your crafting projects and gift giving.

  10. Wow...you really were inspired for this last day! These projects (and all your others during this 12 day spree) are amazing. I love the Note 2 self post-it holder. That is a great idea for stocking stuffers. Hope you have some time for rest this holiday season, but I can't wait to see what other inspiring projects you come up with. Thanks again. slbuller at fullchannel dot net.

  18. I experienced a similar moment on 11/11/11 at 11:11 pm! Anyway, it's obvious you aren't ready for the "12 Days" to end because "On the 12th day of Christmas, [the Craft Angel] gave to me..." THREE NEW PROJECTS!!! Adorable and yummy on the treats! I am partial to the "Mexican Wedding Cookies" myself, (though my kids call them "Snowballs"). I made tons of Post-it note holders last year. Emma's die would have saved me TONS of time...Sigh...
    Thank you so very much for all the AMAZING projects you've shared for this event. You always inspire me!

  37. I have really enjoyed the 12 days...so many great projects. I really like the way the starburst looks behind the O in pop...Beef Broccoli is a great font. Your box of cookies looks marvelous...the way you did the banner is great. Your notepad holder is so clever how you have them held in with the envelope side flaps and I love the magnet idea. You had time to bake?? Thanks for the project ideas.
