Some of you have asked about my Stampin’ Up team holiday party that I mentioned in my post last week here. I created the paper punch trees as my gift exchange. I thought I’d share what some of the other very creative ladies did as well as the fun Make and Takes that our fearless leader had prepared for us to make at the party.
First lets start with the Make and Takes. There were three treats for us and we got to make three of each!
These tags (sneak peek) use the new tag topper punch from the soon to be released occasions catalog. Cute!
Then we decorated three votive candles with just the beautiful cotton ribbon, glittered sticky tape cut into any shapes you wanted (I die cut it into the letters of J O Y). Is this a cute and simple little gift? (they will be so cute with actual candles in them!)
Then look at these darling little tins! Just a strip of DSP wrapped around, a few punches and an adorable holiday sentiment! LOVE THEM!!!
So much fun.
After we were done creating our projects, eating yummy snacks and drinking wine (well we didn’t really get done drinking wine!) we enjoyed the gift exchange. Everything was wonderful. For the second year in a row there were no steals. Carla (our upline) has threatened to change the rules next year so that there will be stealing!
First opened were these fun little photo frames. They can be changed out for any holiday or event. So fun!
Next was my turn. It was so hard to decide which package to try. Look at this wonderful wall art. So fun and I can keep it up year round. It is currently hanging proudly in my laundry room.
Then my trees were opened. Everyone loved them. It was such a tickle to share them.
After the trees this fabulous little wall/door hanging was opened. This is so amazing in person. The creator used MDS and some fancy die cutting machine to create the red sentiment out of sticker paper. Then she put it on a little canvas and wrapped it with some red ribbon for hanging. Wow!
Lastly this super cute valentines day garland was opened. It is really hard to see in the photos but it was adorable! Just a simple little beaded garland with wonderful hand made tags/banners/embellishments. Just darling!
Want to join in on the holiday party next year? 🙂 There is a new joining promotion coming after the first of the year…..
