Hello again.  Is everyone getting into the Christmas spirit?  Yes, I am in Disney with my family and we are having a blast but I didn't want you to miss Week 2 so here is this adorable little gift container shared with us by our upline, Phyllis Shepherd.

Here is what you will need for this project:

Candy Cane Christmas Designer Series Paper (120809)
Baja Breeze Cardstock (105120)
Real Red Cardstock (102482)
Real Red Satin Ribbon (117286)
Candy Cane Buttons (121718)
Stampin' Store Containers (103649)
Flower, Daisies #2 Sizzix Die (Big Shot) (114520)
Sticky Strip (104294)
Mini Glue Dots (103683)
Linen Thread (104199)
2 1/2" circle punch (120906)
Scallop Square punch (119884)
Extra Large Tag punch (119866)
Tags Til Christmas Stamp Set ( 121169 clear) (120847 wood mount)

First you want to punch your designer paper pieces for the inside.  You will need 2 2 1/2"circles.  Attach your sticky strip to the inside of the bottom and top and then to the top outside.  Then you want to put a strip around the outside of your base.  You will need to use your solid cardstock and run it through the Big Shot twice with each color and then arrange them on the top of the container using glue dots.  Put your ribbon through your button and attach it with glue dots.  Punch your tag in real red and then stamp your sentiment in baja breeze and punch out with the scallop square.  Put the square on the tag and tie it on underneath the flower with linen thread.  You will need to use the ribbon to go around the outside of the container.  You will just trim it when you get all the way around.  The sticky strip holds it very securely.  Fill it with your choice of candy or treats and give it to whomever you choose. 

Happy gift giving.  Let me know if I can be of any assistance.  If you want to purchase the items for this project go to my online store and use the item numbers listed above.
