9th Handmade Gift Idea for Christmas brought to you by Shelley

On the 9th day of Christmas I decided to make my teacher's gifts a little early and you can too!!

Here is what you will need

Patterned paper - Basic Grey Jovial
Lifestyle Crafts stocking die
Lifestyle Crafts snowflake die
Lifestyle Crafts Winter Wishes gift set (I used the pocket die for a gift card holder)
treat bags
gift card, I usually give a Chapters or Starbucks
(tip: buy extra for yourself because take it from me you will snack on them while creating this craft and you don't want to run out!!!)

Start out by cutting and assembling the stocking

assemble the gift card holder and attach to back of stocking

glue the tip of a skewer and insert it between the pocket and the stocking so the pointy tip is hidden

Now die cut your snowflakes, I cut 3 for each 3 dimensional snowflake and scored a grove down the middle of each to fold in half

Now glue 3 together

glue the tip of a skewer and insert it up the centre of the snowflake

Now fill your treat bags with candy or chocolate or whatever and place in mug. Insert the skewered stocking and snowflakes and tie off the bag. Now tie some ribbon around the handle and one of Vicki's handmade tags, insert a gift card in the cardholder and give to teacher and bask in the praise you will receive!!!
