Christmas Gifts

Do you like to make your own gifts?  Consider using the Close to My Heart Base and Bling line.  It is so easy to make a unique gift using the wonderful assortment of pendants – round, square, oval or rectangle.  You have your choice of silver or antiqued gold.  Then you can choose your own design for the pendent or use some to the sticker sheets that CTMH offers (you can see the choice here)  I decided to make a few necklaces as christmas gift for some family members ~ including myself 🙂

Polar bear necklaces ~ Base & Bling ~ catscrapbooking.comAren’t these polar bears adorable??? I had this pattern paper for many years now waiting for the “right” project.  Well I decided this would be the prefect project for them.  I used a 1″ circle punch to cut the two on the outsides and then fussy cut the one in the middle.  I added some Stickles to the two on the with the hat to make the appearance of snow.  I used CTMH teal glitter paper to back the bear I fussy cut.  Then using the Artiste cartridge I cut this cute pocket envelope to hold the necklaces.
