Christmas Gift Ideas

I'm making these for craft shows, but you might like to make them for gifts. These clear cases are sold by Stampin' Up! They're like CD cases, but they don't have that notchy thing in the middle so it's perfect for a junior legal pad. I also put an RSVP pen, a pocket and a calendar in these. I put directions for these on a previous post here. For the notepad cases below, I cut the tablets to 4 1/2 inches wide to accommodate the RSVP pen. I got the small calendars from SkyBluePink for a great price.

My friend Connie Stewart put a post it note pad and a smaller paper pad in hers and you can see it here.
Magnet Calendar- I simply adhered the calendar, stamped image and layers of paper together then put a magnet on the back. I used register covers from Home Depot. They come three in a package for around 4.50 and they are huge!
These tea and cookie holders are soooo adorable and would make such a wonder little gift for neighbors, co-workers, mail delivery person, etc. This is Debi Pippin's original idea. Her blog post with videos can be found here. I've had the most fun decorating the cards that go in the front pocket with the Stampin' Up! stamp set called Tea Shop. The pocket in the back can fit two tea bags if you like.
I made these Grinch pills using the 1 by 8 cello bags from Stampin' Up! the  modern label, ornament from merry minis punch pack and 3/4 inch circle punch. I hand cut the hat. The poem is on the back of his head. A lot of people use tic tacs and put the label around the package. They are too expensive to use for craft show purposes, so I opted to use green M &Ms.
