Cute & Easy Little Christmas Gift

Well here is another easy, little gift that could be given to a coworker or neighbor. I have featured the Polar Expressions line by Imaginisce. Not only is this gift easy and quick, but you are going "Green" by using the packing of the chipboard stickers.

First I got a pack of the Polar Expressions "Warm Wishes" chipboard stickers and mounted them on the packaging insert to take away the "sticky" back and trimmed around the edges. Next, I cut some small pieces of adhesive magnetic material and stacked two pieces on the back of each sticker.

Then I inked the edges of the chipboard stickers with my Copic markers and added a little "Bling Fling" to embellish the front of the sticker, just a bit. And now the refrigerator magnets are finished.

I placed the magnets in a cute little box that I made out of two pieces of the double sided papers.

I took left over strips from the paper that I just used to make the box and I cute the edges with a decorated wavy blade from my Purple Cows cutter and crossed the strips on the top of the box to simulate a tied ribbon. And lastly I embellished two poinsettias flowers with a custom made brad from my I-top and adhered it to the top of the box.

And that was it. This was a super easy gift that would be perfect for a teacher, coworker or even a neighbor. I hope you enjoyed it.

Products used: Patterned Papers, flowers, Bling, brad & brad maker: Imainisce; Trimmer: Purple Cows; Adhesive: Glue Dots International; Copic markers.
