This next handmade gift is a case from Heidi at Blue Eyed Blessings. She has a wonderful, detailed tutorial HERE. These were seriously so easy to make ... I made six of them in very little time .... under an hour. The Jingle All the Way Decor Elements were applied to the glass of the shadow box frame (easy peasy!), applied designer paper to the back panel of the shadow box frame, added the jingle bells and Stampin' Up! Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.Hope you all had a wonderful CHRISTmas! We received a priceless gift ... my aunt flew with my Mom to Phoenix the week before Christmas, and we were able to spend Christmas and her Christmas Day birthday with her (my Mom)! She is here another week, then I'll be flying with her back home to Omaha. We've had a wonderful time and cherish every moment.

HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS GIFTS
Here are some gifts I made this Christmas. The first photo shows some glass jar canisters with the Stampin' Up! Decor Elements Oval Chalkboard Labels. I copied this idea from my friend, Lorri Heling, as Lorri had given me the same gift this summer. I have used the jars over and over again. I have filled them with Halloween candy and written "Trick", "or", "Treat". I've also used them individually by filling one with candy, and written the word "yum" on the chalkboard label. I even used one in my library at school .... I am selling wristbands in the school colors with the school name .... filled the large jar with the wristbands and wrote the price in the oval label. Endless possibilities and great gifts!
