12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 10

Welcome to Day 10: 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Hello my crafty friends! Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 10! Can you believe the Holidays are quickly approaching.What great way to start of the Season by visiting us for these 12 Days filled with Christmas Ideas. If you have arrived from Sandra's blog, you are in the right place, if not I would really love for you to start at the beginning with our dearest Host Sylvia.

This Christmas Season is the best holiday for me because I look forward to spending the holidays with my family and husband. But also to be able to give others as best as I can. My goal for this Christmas Season is to give back some how. I know that I am not able to help everyone but every little counts. This Christmas I would love to provide one child in need of a Christmas miracle by providing them with a back pack filled with items such as clothes, a toy, school supplies, and yummy snacks. I also want to find out about how I can go help at a shelter and serve food to the people in need. Truly these are my goals for this Christmas Season and hope to accomplish them. With these 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop, you will get to see some fun projects that I plan to send out to some kids or family and brighten up their day.

For this project, I decorated a Metal Container that I purchased at Target in the $1.00 bin as a Gift Container. Since these normally cost more than 3 bucks at Michaels and Joanns, I ended up getting several to have. For this Gift Tin, you can fill it up with candy, Christmas Items, or just anything fun.

First, you need to cut 4 x 12 Christmas paper and wrap it around the container. Then, I used ribbon from the winter ribbon of 3 Girls Jam to wrap around the container and handle. Then I hot glue a Holiday brad to the center of the container as it is attached to a green ribbon.
