Got the Christmas Spirit Already








I totally want to craft chrsitmas stuff....I love making anything christmas. ..these are for my friends that come to my Christmas craft party every year...this will hold all the goodies to make three projects I will teach. I have the same 4 ladies every year and one new one every year for a total 5 ladies in my small craft room..we all have so much fun thou even with the tight squeeze..We all look forward to this every year..they are all asking already what we are making..so they got me going on a few things...lol...this will be thier gift along with a special ornament from me. The things we make at the party will be something they can make for thier family and friends this year also.






I Made this with a large plastic coffee can. I cleaned it out with soap and water...poured some vanilla on a newspaper and set out in the sun with the lids on it...gets the coffee smell out..then I wiped a bit of vanilla on the inside of the canister wha la! ready for cookies....These graphics were purchased from http://www.coutnrycharmgraphics.com/ over a year ago..I run them thru my xyron so they will stick on nicely and there ya have it...A beautiful canister...these work well for mailing goodies also...

This turned out beautiful. I'm starting to look for holiday craft ideas too! I did get 14 of the snowman ornaments cut out the other day. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.

What an awesome job on these cannisters... the can is a gift in itself... very cute

I love that you re-cycle things and keep them out of the landfill... every little bit helps... can't wait to see your next project.

Have a great day Dee Dee
