If you're hopping in order, you've arrived from Betty's Kitty Stamp Blog. I love her adorable designs and gift packaging ideas with the Yummy Little Christmas set.

First is this little Tic Tac Holder using the Mini Tic Tac Holders from the dollar store.  I didn't know tiny Tic Tacs existed until I saw a video of Halloween ones by Laura Heindl.  Such a cute idea, and they aren't so much larger than the Tic Tac box that they will fold over, wrinkle and rip like the old style used to back in the day.

 I thought it would be cool to punch through and show the Tic Tacs as I'd seen done many times in the past with the larger Tic Tac boxes, so I made the Basic Black and Tempting Turquoise one using the Star of Wonder Set.  (The Merry Christmas is not from this set. the project needed a smaller sentiment, so I cut it from the Beary Merry Christmas in the Cookie Cutter Christmas set because I wouldn't use that sentiment.)  Tempting Turquoise is a nice match for the Berry Flavor of Tic Tacs, and the package was placed upside down so that the Tic Tacs would show rather than the label.  

( I couldn't resist letting the snowman from the Snow Place stamp set photobomb the picture!)

Next, I made this card with gold embossed stardust trails using the MOJO Monday Sketch MOJO 468. I loved the gold on black look, but I added Crushed Curry under the Star to give it more gold depth. 

It is difficult to see the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper which matches nicely. Maybe this second picture will help if one clicks on it?

Now I know you'll enjoy Sara's Creations with the Christmas Pines set.  Beautiful cards and her Painter's Tray is so lovely. See them on her blog: Lily's Ink Pad
