If you don't see a post from me on Friday, it is because I'm one of the "crazy" ones standing in line waiting for the stores to open to snag some good deals:) If I'm not too tired, I'll get another gift idea posted.
On to today's gift idea. This jar is from Ikea. I decorated the lid, tied a ribbon around it and would fill it FULL with candy if I was giving it as a gift. You may be thinking the reason there are so few m&m's in the jar is because I ate them...well, that is incorrect THIS time. I did not have Christmas m&m's and wanted them to match so I snuck into my kids' Halloween candy and took the green, red and brown m&m's:) This is another quick and easy gift. Just so you know, the large chocolate chip circle was cut with the circle scissors plus and the rest was with punches. The stamp I used is from a retired hostess set. I hope you enjoy!

I learned how to dry emboss and omitt the middle section of a card from this blog.
The ornaments are punched out of flocked designer paper. The paper is beautiful!
This card was CASED from this blog.

I've seen many cards where people had sewn on them. I love the look and wanted to try it myself. So, I got out my sewing machine and my son (6 years old) said, "I didn't know you had one of those." I guess it has been way too long since I've sewn:) Now, I just need a spot where I can keep my sewing machine out so I use it more! That will probably not happen as I use every little space I have and then some!
I decided to do a pocket card and sew the sides. The Razzleberry designer paper with all of its colors make this card lovely. I also used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and modern label punch as well. If you like to sew, try it on your cards!
The circle circus stamp set works great with SU's circle punches!

This next project is a matchbook that holds snack size m&m bags. I'm sure Skittles would work, too. It has a "belly band" wrapped around the middle. This idea was taken from a demo on splitcoaststampers.

The first project is a Frankenstein treat box made using the Big Shot and Top Note Die. Various punches were used to make the face. Inside the "box" you can place goodies!

I had high hopes of posting a picture using new SU! items, but due to a migraine, going to a parade, playing with the kids and trying to get ready for a craft fair, it hasn't happened! So, I went back to some projects that I had hoped to share earlier, but never got posted:)
This is a project that we did at my last Big Shot Class...glass etching! It is SO easy to do. I bought the glass containers at Target and glass etching cream at a local craft store. To do this, run a piece of SU! vinyl, laminating paper, or contact paper through your Big Shot with the Bigz die of your choice (we used the butterfly die) to use as a "stencil". Firmly adhere this to your glass container and apply the glass etching cream and follow the directions on the back of the etching cream. I then adhered a button and the ribbon to finish it off.

Here is another card using the embossing folder, Manhattan Flower. I ran the designer paper through the Big Shot and then lightly sanded the flowers with a sanding block to have the white core of the designer paper show through.
