Handmade Gifts

There is no one like me who loves it when it comes to getting a gift from someone who put their heart and soul into a handmade gift for you.  So I have to show you what my friend Marlene made for me because they are stunning!  She made a mini magazine holder that held my card and a gift certificate.  Then she made this most amazing Santa basket with the Sizzix Topnotch and Fancy Favors Bag dies.  The cool thing about the Santa is that all his hair is textured by Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder!  See below:

Now, aren't they all delightful?  The card is so neat because the Christmas bulb is only half cut out to the fold.  The other side of the bulb is decorated with decorative paper that uses flocking in its pattern.  I am so lucky to be blessed with great friends!
