The Perfect Man

Hello everyone,

Only 2 more sleeps to the big day and our heating has broken down! We had friends round for dinner last night and were able to warm up one room so it was cosy, and I was so glad we have a fire in the living room. Whilst I am waiting for the gas man to come, I thought I'd share  final post before Christmas. This little gingerbread man package is something I included in my 'secret santa' gift last week. I saw the idea earlier this year and thought I would give it a try:-

I typed the poem on the computer, cut a Kraft tag from the Cricut Tags, Bags and  Boxes cartridge and then passed it through the printer, before using PTI snowfall stamps on it.

I packed the gingerbread man in a glassine bag after it had been passed through a Cuttlebug folder.

This is the other side of the tag.
All the presents but one have now arrived and I only have to ice the cake before the big day, so I'm off to sit by the fire and have a cuppa until the gasman cometh.
Thank you for visiting my blog, I really appreciate all the comments you make, and I enjoy visiting other blogs, so please leave details of your own blog whilst you are here. I wish you a very happy Christmas and a fun and crafty new year.

  1. That's great, love the snowflake tag and verse. I hope your heating is restored soon.

  2. Well Carol, if the contents are as yummy as the packaging I'm sure the recipient will be delighted;)

    Have a lovely Christmas!
