So, here again are the gift pouches I made. I made them by ironing freezer paper to snowmen napkins. The pouch is the pull treat pattern from http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/. The project lin is here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/pull_treats/ You don't untie it to open it, you just pull on the bow and it "magically" brings out your treat!! Pretty cool!! They are embellished with blue candy canes I found (who knew??), satin ribbon, and these nifty linking metallic sequiney snowflakes that were actually a linked garland. I thought they made cool tags!!
My gifties are bamboo tile necklaces made with gel transfers. This is a technique I truly love. I learned from a dear Friend and fellow 12 days participant Angie Haviland. Her awesome work and bamboo tile tutorial can be found at her blog here: http://angiehallhaviland.typepad.com/angiesartfulllife/

My tiles are strung on waxed black linen cording and embellished with various beads and charms. Each is unique. They are then packaged onto vintage playing cards for gifting!! Here are a couple of my faves. I also have some that are available for purchase in my Etsy shop http://www.shellyraewood.etsy.com/. As always, custom orders are always appreciated. :::Smiles:::
