Christmas in July

Hi Everyone!!! If you are looking for the Festive Friday Blog hop, please go here.

Welcome to Christmas in July. I have the pleasure of being one of the guest designers of the Christmas in July week with Giselle and Nadia.They are hosting a week long celebration to Christmas in July. If you have not stopped by their sites, please make sure you go. Everyday something new is featured.

Today is all about Handmade Gifts. I had so much fun trying to decide what to make. I finally settled on the idea of a cute take out box from the new Cricut Projects Cartridge, Sweet Tooth Boxes. I filled the boxes with my Soy Fragrance Tarts shaped like little Gingerbread Men (scented Gingerbread Cookies) and decorated Christmas Trees (scented in Spruce Tree).

These little gift boxes will make a wonderful Hostess Thank You Gift after hosting a Holiday gathering.
