12 Days Of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 8

Welcome to Day 8: 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop!

Hello my crafty friends! Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop: Day 8! 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.

I wanted to create a fun and easy project.Especially since I was feeling under the weather yesterday, I still wanted to craft. I guess it's just been pretty windy in Southern California. We been getting some crazy winds. On the plus side, today I get to sub a Kinder class where I already work in.So Im excited about working with the little ones.Ok, sorry to get off track, back to the project.LOL. What would be more fun then to receive a candy bar of some sort as a Christmas Stuffer but decorated. I wanted to create a candy wrapper for my treat. I used some Christmas Paper and my 3 Girls Jam Ribbon to add the final touch to the treat.

First: Gather your materials: Candy Bar, Christmas Paper, Ribbon.
Second: Cut 3-3/4 x 4-3/4 of Christmas Paper. Then wrap around it and you your ATG gun to glue it together.

 Third, Make a bow using two colors of ribbon. I used the Winter Bundle Ribbon from 3 Girls Jam. Then, I used my mini Santa Puncher and punched a santa out. I used markers to color the santa. Then I used Star Dust Stickles to brighten up santa's beard, around his boots and wrists, and hat.
