My first GIFT IDEA is an ornament made with photographs and Stampin' Up! supplies.

These are for my nephew and his bride – they were just married this fall.  I hope they like this for their first Christmas Tree!  I used My Digital Studio to add the text to the photo.

 I posted an idea similar to this earlier this week with some instructions.  Please see that post for more details.

My 2nd Gift Project idea is a Candy Treat great for holiday giving!

Two tags die candy 

This candy treat uses the TWO TAGS DIE (#115954, pg 206) and the Big Shot.

 Candy side 

Start with a folded piece of DSP about 2-1/2" x 7"

then place it on your TWO TAGS DIE as shown below

Run it through the Big Shot and when it's cut out you will have a "folded" tag.  Use sticky strip or Snail to adhere your candy inside and wrap up with a ribbon and tag!
