first up, the tin-full-of-candies trick: this 4 x 2 x 1" tin was recycled from a set of paperchase mini LED xmas tree lights, but you could use a mint tin or one of the many cute containers that prima flowers & other supplies come in.
next, a sweet little giftcard wallet that i based very loosely on a FAB dina wakley project that darling stef sent me a link to last week. of course when i went to make mine, i couldn't find the pics and wound up winging it...but the basic idea of a tri-fold with pockets inside and stitching all round the edges is there, and i really like how this came out!
tomorrow we take a break from the never-ending christmas...i have a crafty surprise that's COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!
