5 Days of Christmas, Day 1

Welcome, welcome, to the first of the 5 Days of Christmas with the My Creative Time Design Team! I love holiday crafting, it's my most favorite, so this week is going to be especially fun for me. I hope you will enjoy the projects I have to share with you.

Up first are these super cute Snowman Soup Mugs and Toasty Gloves gifts. These are the perfect gift, or gifts if you wish to split them up, for a neighbor, mailman, teacher, hairdresser, or to have on hand for drop-in visitors throughout the holiday season.

For my chipboard tag, I used staz-on ink and the 'warm wishes' sentiment from Do The Cocoa Motion stamp set. Each mug contains a bag of mini marshmallows, packet of cocoa, and a candy cane stirring stick.

For the gloves, I made a simple topper using the tri-fold card. The paper is so cute it doesn't really need a tag, unless you were to give it as a gift on its own. In this case, I'll give the gloves along with the mugs.

Another sweet snowman soup and gloves gift. I went to pick up a couple more of these mugs yesterday and they are all gone!!! I love this blue one and wish I had grabbed two so I could keep one for myself. LOL



There you go, Day 1. Isn't this a fun idea. So simple, but these simple embellishments make a great presentation. Who wouldn't enjoy hot cocoa on a cold winter morning, and extra gloves to keep in the car, your purse, or coat pocket. Thanks for coming today. I'll be here all week, folks! See you tomorrow. ♥
