‘M’ for Make a Gift :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer :-) Can you believe we are already up to ‘M’ in the alphabet !! , the weeks are rolling by ,,,, :-)

This time our lovely teamie Kelly is hosting the challenge :-)

‘M’ for Make a Gift !

This can be something you have made to give as a present or something you have made to give the present in e.g. bag, box or a gift tag.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Stamp and Create, owned by another lovely teamie ,,, Lacey !

Lacey also has a sale on at the moment, everything is 10% off !! Woo Hoo !! :-)

I decided to make a tea dispenser, I made one of these before and it was so quick and easy to do and as one of my best friends LOVES tea I made this for her :-) I will buy her a nice mug and some dunking biscuits to go with it !! :-)



The whole thing was cut out on the Silhouette Cameo, I used blue coredinations and the snowflake paper is from Craft Creations. I punched a few Martha Stewart snowflakes and used Crystal Glitter for twinkle. I added a Tim Holtz Hitch Fastener on the top and I tied a tag and using some ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
