christmas came early

christmas-lights31

And just like that it is already Christmas. I am already feeling all the “Christmas associated feelings” like running out to complete my Christmas shopping list, getting cups of hot coffee, searching for my sister’s birthday present, running off to get my friends some nice stuff,  calling up a bakeshop to get the neighbors some warm brownies, buying inappropriate amounts of wrapping paper and ribbons because I like the color, it is shiny and find the pattern pretty, assembling my makeshift gift wrapping station at home, looking at window displays for clothes that might be this year’s Christmas outfit/ new year’s outfit getting them and then buying again because the new one looked better, suppressing the need to light up all the twinkle lights strung at home because the electric bill will spike up, and the panic buying of generic gifts en masse. (or my so called Christmas biscuits/chocolate for those whose name I forgot to place on the list) Walking around the mall feeling like I am on a shopping spree and going home with only a hundred on my pocket. I really look forward and get all excited about this!

 

*And because it is a good thing to get everyone’s presents in their size/color…etc. I am sharing with you my Christmas wishlist survey which I send to all my friends come yuletide season so I can pick out the right stuff for my friends.

last night I was frantically scouring the net for free halloween printables / cliparts to use for this year’s favor boxes. I ended up using yellow cellophane paper, tissue paper rolls, slim purple ribbons and the free printables that I modified. Filled with candies my sister got from the grocery. Not bad for a rush job.

Valentine’s Day Love Packs

For valentine’s day I want to do  something special for my friends, because usually I just give them chocolates.

But for this year, I want to create my own valentine pack/s to give. My friends are fond of sweets (just like me!).

So, I went to find some bite sized chocolates, candies and polvoron (powdered milk candy), some pretty paper and cellophane wrapper and went to work.

I made small paper trays and filled them with equal number of treats, wrapped it in cellophane wrapper and tied it with a ribbon and attached a tag to it.

1. bite sized chocolates,<br /><br /><br /><br />2. candies and polvoron,<br /><br /><br /><br />3. all tied up!, 4. a bundle without the wrapper, 5. a close up of the tag, 6. the love packs I made.

I thought I did  good, the bundles look cute!

It was easy to make and fun to do as well! I thought I would share the paper tray and tags as a free printable, so you can make some love packs to give!

here is the paper tray:
