5 Days of Christmas, Day 5

Another idea inspired by Pinterest -- who doesn't love that place for crafty ideas, right!? I made this for my mail lady. I hope she's not allergic to scents, because these tealight candles are my very favorite for the holidays. They burn in my house all winter and smell delicious....cranberry. Mmmmm!! Makes me want to get busy baking!


Easy embellishment on the front using MCT Rolled Flower dies, curly label and stitched curly lable dies. Sentiment is from the Fright Night stamp set.

Inside is the gift tag in a window pocket, and the candle box, which is actually apart of the card itself. I love this project!

Tag using the MCT large tag, tag topper, and jingle bells dies. Sentiment from the set, From Our Family to Yours.

I hope you've enjoyed these last minute Christmas ideas. Even though our 5 days are finished, don't expect me to stop posting. *wink wink* I have so many more ideas and plan to keep crafting away; I hope to have plenty of time to share even more ideas with my best bloggy buds - YOU! - in the days before Christmas so please come back for more. ♥
