MCT 5 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Hello, and welcome to our "5" Days of Christmas!  This week we will be sharing lots of Christmas ideas, such as cards, layouts, home decor, 3D items, and whatever else comes to mind that will let YOU get your juices flowing for the holiday!  There will be a giveaway each day, and the winner will be announced the following day!  You will see the different prizes each day on Emma's blog HERE!  I hope we all inspire you this week!


For today's project, I have a sour cream container.  I've made this in a simpler form for my students (see video instructions here), but I thought it would be fun to dress up a fancier version to give to a friend!


The MCT Small Stitched Scalloped Bow Die makes the perfect size bow for this!  The tan grid paper that I used for the container itself is from the Simple Stories Handmade Holiday collection.  The rest of the papers I used, including the fun stripe for the bow is from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas.  Don't you love that heart shaped button?  I found it in my Papertrey Ink Ripe Avocado Button Collection.


I made this cute little tag using the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Dies.  I also used two edge dies from Fun Stitched Edges:  the curved one to make my snow drift and the stitched scallop to add a pop of color.  That adorable little snowman was made with a die from All Around Holiday, and I got the sentiment from Teeny Tag Holidays.


Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what she and the rest of the design team have in store for you!
