First I'd like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year in 2013.
I enjoy giving a little hand made gift now and then. Especially when I find an idea that others are so gracious to post on Pintrest or their blogs. I've posted something similar before and posted it to my blog in a different design. I made two of these for gifts to give to two of my favorite neighbors for a little gift this holdiay season. Since I'm not much into baking and giving out Christmas cookies like others, this is my way of showing my love for them at Christmas.
I made this small and simple card to match. I stamped a Merry Christmas inside. It is only 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. I had some small envelopes that size and attached it to the cello bag with the blue bow.
Here is a close up of the top of the pad. I used sparkle silver paper and added little sliver rhinestones to the center of the two large snowflakes. I attached a tag and left it blank so they would be able to use it later, if they wished. Each of my neighbors loved this gift. They thought it was so cute. I thought by making it in blue they would not mind having it around during the year other than Christmas.
I hope you holidays have been memorable?
May your New Year in 2013 be filled with blessings.
