A little Christmas in March?

In honor of the ice and snow we had this weekend, I've decided to show you a few little Christmasy somethings :) These are some of my Winger Design Team projects for the Paper Wings Gallery. There are a ton of wonderful projects found there using TAC stamps & products, so you should probably go take a lookie-see!

First up is this small mason jar candle, caramel scent. I found these at the Dollar General Store, and there were some really pretty colors to work with: caramel, vanilla, & strawberry. I thought these made great gifties at Christmas.

Other: Christmas Red Stickles, Amelia Ribbon, misc. ribbon, Pop dots, distresser, Mega Scallop Circle Punch, brass eyelets

Next, how about these little Ghirardelli Mint Chocolate Scallop Squares? Yummy! Just hang them on the tree and see how long they stay there
{ mine never made it to the tree ;) }

Stamps: Sweet Goodies
Paper: Amelia Cardstock
Ink: Bordeaux & Jardin Moss Palettes
Other: Amberley Grace Ribbon, foam tape, Mega & Giga Scallop Square Punches, red & green Tombow markers, white gel pen


And finally, keeping with the whole yummy chocolatey goodness, this Ghirardelli Mint Pouch!

Stamps: Tag Tidbits
Paper: Amelia SWIC, Amelia Cardstock & misc. cream cardstock
Other: Scor-Pal, misc. ribbon, Fiskars border punch, sewing machine, circle punches

This little baby would work as a gift card holder as well! If you would like a template, just email me and I can send it to you. The template isn't pretty, but it gets the job done! :)
So there you have it... a little Christmas in March.

What do you think?

Barb, great, super projects. Love that pouch especially how you tucked the circle on one side under the scallop strip. Very nice!

I love these!! I love how you altered the candles and the mints, although I don't think they would last long on my tree. I think they would make great gift tags if I could keep them away from my kids long enough.

These are great, Barb! Love how you used the scalloped squares! We actually got 4 inches of snow here Saturday--crazy, but you never know in KS!
