Melissa Phillips shares her love for details in this week's MIM
If it's layered, detailed, blinged or beribboned, LOVE!
The holidays bring happy times for my family.
Cookie Exchanges, parties, (we have 3 birthdays in November, and
4 birthdays in December!)
There are always gifts to give or exchange, so I was thrilled when Nichole introduced
the 'Canned' collection of stamps & dies.
The last time Melissa was in the spotlight, she painted and decorated her
For this MIM, I want my contents to show, so, only the label is on the
I used PTI's Doilies dies, and the littlest snowflake from Fancy Flakes
to do the partial die cuts on the top of the Folded Foodie tag.
The folded tag is decorated with the gingerbread man from: Tremendous Treats Christmas,
and a Pure Poppy button.
Jar Bonnet Collection for decorating the top of the jar.
His buttons are done with Viva Glass Effect Gel pen in Carmine.
(Love the way this comes out of the pen, and dries like a pearl!)
Gingerbread cookie mix in a jar ingredients are hand written (sad handwriting!),
easy breezy instructions.
Canned has all the sweet sayings included.
Even that little flower on the top!
Target carries these 4oz. jars, perfect for including the 1/4 Cup molasses needed.
Except the butter, all the ingredients are included in the quart jar (also from Target).
The little molasses jar fits inside the filled quart jar perfectly!
Just create a well on top, and slip the little jar in!
These are really easy assembly line gifts for the holidays,
and who doesn't love the sweet contents
and their baked goodness?
I think it would be fun to include a little gingerbread man tied on
if you want to 'over the top' - it.
(Not at Target yet!)
