Today is the Fifth Day of Christmas and you know what my true love gave to me? . . . Not Five Golden Rings . . . but Five Golden NAPKIN rings! Hehehe!



I am hosting this year's holiday dinner and I thought it would be a lot of fun to create my own coordinating napkin rings.



I used a heavy cardboard tube and covered it with embossed and misted cardstocks. I used the Cuttlebug VICTORIA and DISTRESSED STRIPES folders. To finish them off I added a red and green checked ribbon with a large red jewel brad. I love the way they turned out!

I've also been using my Cuttlebug embossing folders to create some cute gift bags. This folder is called Mistletoe Kisses and is only available at Oh, My Crafts! What I love about this folder is that it is 5 X 7 . . . a little bit larger than the regular A2 folders.



I used the Mistletoe Kisses folder to emboss some kraft paper sacks. I then decorated the bag with patterned papers and topped it off with a ribbon. Fast, cute and EASY!!! My daughter is filling them with bath gels, lip gloss and candy to give to her friends.

My son wanted to give candy bars to his friends for Christmas, but I wanted to find a cute way to dress them up. I did a search on 2 Peas in a Bucket and found this adorable Snowman Candy Bar idea.

HERE IS THE PATTERN.

Didn't they turn out adorable?!! Gotta love quick gift ideas this point in the game, right?! :D :D :D



How are your Christmas crafts and goodies coming along?

Talk to you soon!
