PaperTrey November Blog Hop

I'm excited to be able to participate in this month's PaperTrey blog hop because I have lots of little presents to wrap! This particular little gift includes a single serve package of Ghiradelli Peppermint Chocolate coffee and some peppermint stir sticks coated in chocolate. I even have a little box of Mrs. Fields peppermint chocolate truffles to go along with it... except I might eat them all first. They are *so* good!!

For my packaging, I covered an empty Planters Macadamia Nut Delight can with some dp from the PTI Rustic Snowflakes pack that I was given by a dear friend. (Thanks, friend!!) I made the tag by stamping the snowflake strip from Holiday Treats along the bottom edge of a piece of Poppy cardstock and mounting it on a handcut tag. The sentiment is from Holiday Treats as well. To give the little coffee cup in the middle of the sentiment some pizzaz, I colored around it with a BG10 copic. Then I added some steam and dotted my little cup with a white gel pen. I just attached the tag to the canister with pop dots, and then I stamped some tissue paper with the little snowflake stamp in the set, just so it would match. Fun, quick, easy... and it looks more expensive than it is!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Blessings!

Tricia
