Holiday Gifts

I'm still finishing up some simple holiday gifts - here's one of them. It is a quart sized paint can, purchased at Lowe's. I wrapped paper around it, and made a band of coordinating paper. I stamped the "homemade" image, which is from the Christmas Wishes set by Lizzie Anne Designs, and cut it out with a giga scalloped punch.

My holly images are from the same set. They are stamped on watercolor paper and colored with an aquapainter. Before addign the scalloped circle to the can I paper pierced the edges. It is adhered with dimensionals, and I added ribbon underneath it.

I plan on filling it with peppermint bark. That's one of my favorite holiday treats to make! My dad will probably get this (it is safe to post that - he never reads this blog!).

Materials:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Jolly Holiday patterned paper from Hobby Lobby, Watercolor cardstock
  • Stamps:LAD Christmas Wishes
  • Ink: Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Riding Hood Red
  • Tools: giga scalloped punch, paper piercer, aquapainter
  • Accessories: ribbon
