Christmas Projects

I found a template for this awesome milk carton holder on Inking Idaho's blog. I have to say I am not one to pay for templates, I can usually find what I want for free, or make it myself, but this was so perfect! It was exactly what I needed for a last minute gift, and so well done, I had to get it. Definitely a keeper adaptable to every holiday/occasion! It wasn't hard to do, either, just a bit time consuming, but the result is well worth it! I inserted a couple of bags of home made hot chocolate mix (recipe found on the web), some marshmallows, and old fashioned peppermint sitcks I found in a big box store. Most of the supplies are Papertrey Ink.
AND, when I saw this project on Poppy Paperie I fell in love with the sweet chocolate mice! I knew I had to make some! So my daughter and I whipped out the chocolate and made up a batch! They were pretty easy! And they taste good too. These two small boxes are all I have left of the batch, I made three larger boxes of them for family and friends, and they loved them.
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Paper: PTI, Cosmo Cricket, Basic Grey
Ink: Versafine, Distress, Perfect Match
Accessories: McGill Circle punch, Nestabilities, silver ribbon, clear stencil sheets, rhinestones, PTI ribbon


  1. Wow ~~ such great gifts!! I'm not a "project" kinda stamper, so I'm always impressed with stuff like this, lol!

  2. This is terrific. I love the mice. Your box showcases them so well. Super job. I am sure they loved them. You have been busy...
