weSTAMP CHRISTMAS PRESENT

This is a Christmas present Lorri Heiling and I created and gave to our SU downline and weSTAMP members Tuesday night. The mini loaf pan contains a loaf of fresh baked Pumpkin Bread, and the criss cross card has the recipe for it inside. This gift was inspired by Chat Wszelaki's Fall Gift HERE. The cellophane is secured by holiday ribbon with garland and a cookie cutter.
