Christmas Gifts

Well here it is the week before Christmas and I am feeling like I have a handle on things... Cookies are half way done, I only need to find one more gift and the house is not in shambles... I did have one tiny... well 32 lb. problem.... Sam our adorable not so bright puggle got into the craft room and ate some of my girls gifts... I can imagine he had a rude awakening when he realized it was just a bunch of spices... red pepper is not his thing....
I at least got a picture of what they looked like before they were torn to shreds and spread all over the living room and hall... I should have though to get an after picture too.. but I was just a tad bit angry and had to get it cleaned up so he could come back inside as it was just way to cold for him to be out for long...
So.. I made great use of the We R Memory Keepers Box Board and made boxes to hold 5 different packs of dip mixes..
Each box is made with papers from the Graphic 45 12 days of Christmas.. and then with the
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board I made bows... They were super easy and what a great second use for the board !!   
I found a great site that had recipes for dip mixes so I mixed those up... put them in little bags and found I had an old Sizzix die that was bag toppers...

I printed out the name of the dip and what to mix it with on a return address label and attached it to the back of the bag... We even tested the mixes and they are great... I have everything to make samples for Christmas Day so the girls can see what they are...
Here is a link to the video showing how to make bows with the envelope punch board and also the link to the mix recipes... She put them in adorable ornaments and that is a great idea too..
This is a quick gift and If I can make them twice for Christmas....... well you know
Be sure to check back tomorrow as I have found some great ideas for the new Viva D├ęcor products we just added to the store !!
