A little Christmas gift...


It has been awhile since I have been in to share... life has been busy with not too much time to craft. I have been working on putting together a little gift of homemade cards for a gift exchange at work. We are supposed to buy/bring three of the same gift (something you love valued at about $10) for a  "Favorite Things" gift exchange.  I, of course, thought of stamping and decided to put together three little baskets.

I tried to take some pictures this afternoon but my camera was dead :( So I had to take pictures with my phone....sorry they are not the best.

I included 4 Christmas cards with envelopes, 2 Christmas tags, 1 gift card box and a berry basket.

Here are some photos:

( I cased the PTI City Scene card from Nichole Heady)

I bought some Wilton Cookie packaging from Winners which included some small cardboard cookie trays and perfect sized cellophane bags. I put some decorative tissue in the tray, added my basket on top and wrapped it up with a tag and some ribbon.

I will be busy baking this weekend and hopefully working on some more DIY gifts for my son's NINE teachers! (He attends a full day Montessori/daycare and there are lots of amazing staff in the classroom). I hope to be back to share!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Awesome, Megan! Wish I could be the winner of this gift. It's definitely worth more than $10 and use very useful. Beautiful work!

  2. This is great, Megan!! I'd be willing to bet people will be stealing it a lot if y'all do "dirty Santa"!! :D

  6. Wowzers, Megan! I love everything included in your treat packages. Your cards and tags are so adorable. I'm sure that your gifts are going to be the hit of the party - how can they not be?

  7. Oh what a fabulous basket of goodness!! Your cards and tags are wonderful! I just love the City one. That's one of my favorite stamp sets! Have fun baking! :)
