I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Xmas Tube Treats

Hi All!

Today's post is some little treats I made for my nieces and nephew. I borrowed this cartridge from a friend of mine to see if I really wanted to get it. I love birds and there are some really cute little birdies on this cartridge.

I chose the Santa image on page43 for my tag. I used my bazzil scraps for all the bird cuts. For the Beard I used liquid applique and sprinkled glitter over it before heating. (A tip I learned from my Friend Missie. Thanks Missie!) The fur trim on the hat has just plain liquid applique on it. The stamp is from 7 Gypsies. I added a few dots using a white gel pen. The rick-rack and pearl strings are also from my stash.
Here is a picture of the test tubes I filled with mini M&Ms. I tied them to the tag using a sheer ribbon from Hobby Lobby. The diamond paper is from Recollections Jingle Bells Stack.
Thanks for visiting today.

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
