a little late

Good morning everyone! So sorry I'm a little late posting my Belli Challenge project for the day but I hope you'll think it is worth it!

Today Chrissy challenged us to make something Christmas. Easy schmesy, huh? The best part is that it works for the SNSS blog challenge too...woohoo!

Anyway the idea is to use things that you have laying around your craft room and well...I've had these skinny tins for some time and decided to make a gift certificate holder with it. I have seen this idea on other blogs and thought it was SO neat. I used paper from Imaginisce Snowy Jo Glitter Paper Pad and the cute little 3-d items you see are from the same paper pack. Very fun and very easy to put something adorable together. The photo on the right is the tin's top. This is what the recipient will see upon being presented with the gift. Inside I've placed the gift certificate on the bottom in a little pocket and added a little spot on top for a note to be written to the recipeient from the gift giver.

So...whatcha got laying around that you could make something Christmas out of? I bet it will be good do make sure I get to see. Need some inspiration? Check out the Belli Challenge Girls...
