DeNami Gift Wrapping Blog Hop

Welcome to DeNami's December Blog Hop!   If you are following the blog hop, you must have come from the Amber Daigre's wonderful blog!   If you missed the previous blog stops, you can hop back over to the DeNami Blog to start from the beginning.  You have until December 12th, 2011, 11:59pm PST to leave comments on all the blogs in order to be eligible to receive one of the two $20 DeNami gift certificates.  Winners will be chosen randomly.  Good luck!

This month's theme is gift wrapping.  The first thing that comes to mind is Christmas gifts.  Many of my friends enjoy a cup of premium coffee at their favourite coffee house, so I'm planning on getting a few coffee gift cards and making gift boxes to hold them. 

I made the box using a Sizzix XL die.  Making the tag is the fun part.  I used another Sizzix die to make an ornament, and stamped the coffee image (from the DeNami espresso petit four stamp set) on it.  Then I used some Stickles to add the 'snow flakes' and to accent the ornament.   Lastly, I tied the ornament around the gift box and I've got a wonderful Christmas present for my friends!

Thanks for looking!  Next stop is the talented Kimberly Kendle's blog.
