A Hostess Gift

Hi there!
Wow - it's Friday already! I hope you've had a productive week and have been able to finish up all your Christmas cards and projects.
My husband and I have been invited out tonight to a Wine & Cheese party so I've put together this little hostess gift. The bottle is 'Epicure' Mulling Spices and the tin is a sugar Fireside Rimmer. I will include a bottle of red wine too.
I focused my colours on the Bo Bunny paper and coloured Tilda accordingly with my copics. I cut out a large circle nestie and punched out snowflakes on some glitter cardstock. Tilda is cut out and popped up on dimensional squares.
For the hexagonal jar, I measured each panel and scored. Be sure to measure enough to have a tab at the end to tape together ('cos I made this mistake, lol)!!! I placed a snowflake die cut (cuttlebug) on the lid which is covered with Twinklets (Diamond Dust) and tied a bow around the jar.

These gifts were relatively inexpensive but with the extra handmade detail can be made into beautifully personalised gifts. I know our friends will love them as she is very artsy herself.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. I have a few things to finish off and then I think I'm pretty much done. The boys finish school today and so does my husband so everyone starts their holidays together - yippee!!!

I wish you all a fabulous day and for those in England although experiencing snow I hope you enjoy it!!!
