Cafe Treats

It's been a very busy week and believe it or not I bought my first Christmas gift today! I have no idea when I'll get the rest done but at least I've finally made a start! Here are a few goodies we've been making in classes lately. I made a few different types of teabag holders. They are also good for holding two of the after dinner mint - type chocolates. I really like the one with the golden ornament on the front. I used gold mirri cardstock with a Cuttlebug die/embossing folder. These would make lovely place settings at the Christmas dinner table don't you think? The tall brown/red striped one holds a package of hot chocolate mix or a chocolate bar which "magically" appears when you pull up on the bow. The origami tree card looks a little complicated but is actually quite simple to make. I used Christmas Magic paper from Fancy far my favourite Christmas paper this year. Finally, the little pocket card is great for a holiday party invitation or a gift card holder. It fits into a standard A2 envelope. I used more Eskimo Kisses paper for this one and one of the teabag holders and I think they look quite festive. Hope you're all way farther ahead with your Christmas preparations than I am. Thanks for stopping in and have a great week.
