A Holiday Gift

I've sure seen some amazing holiday gifts on people's blogs this week.  I had to make a gift for a church event (it had to be home-made) so I started with a kraft paper six-pack that I decorated and filled with lots of candy and treats.  I took some old Starbucks bottles and filled them with candy and tied on ribbons and baker's twine.  I also added pretzel sticks rolled in white chocolate and crushed candy canes, some coffee, and mints. I decorated the kraft paper six-pack with pattern papers and embellishments.  It was a lot of work, but it turned out sweet and it went over really well at my church party.
These are the challenges I found where I can share my hand-made holiday gift:
The Kraft Journal Challenge Blog - Challenge #150 - Holiday Gifts - I used a kraft paper six-pack and covered it with pattern papers, and also used seam binding (found at The Kraft Outlet)
My Craft Spot - Challenge #121 - Christmas Gifts for Neighbors and Friends - I loved making this six-pack gift holder to use as a gift
Little Scrap Pieces - Friday Linky Party - Christmas Magic & Fun
V's Sweet Ideas Challenge - Challenge #18 - Holiday/Christmas Theme
Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Wednesday Challenge:  Simon Says Snow - You can see the snowman peeking through, and there's also a snow-covered cottage on the front, and lots of other "snowy elements" on my project.
I am so thankful to have you stop by my blog, and I would love to hear your thoughts on my project. 
God bless you!
