Elf Atc's

I got to playing around with my wrapping paper and here is one of the atc's I made. I used wallpaper for the background and also a carpet sample for the carpet. everything else is from wrapping paper besides the wreath which came from one of last years cards. the elf and stove are on pop dots so it's like a 3d effect didn't it turn out so cute!!

here is another atc i made with the elf wrapping paper. This one is very 3d. the window stands off the card so it's like you are looking in their window and it's 3d inside too. But yet still fits in a sleeve :)
I love these little elves they're so cute and I have a whole sheet of them lol

How to Stuff a 2 Liter Bottle

Ok some of you already know, but for those of you who don't, all year long I send away for free samples and then at Christmas time I put them in some sort of container and it becomes a gift for my teenage neice..this year I put them in a pop is how I did it...
Empty and Clean out a 2 liter bottle. Remove the label
cut a slit in the side of the bottle. Not from top to bottom. Just big enough to get your hand and the items into it.

place all items into bottle through that slit

This is what one of my full bottles looked was crammed full!!
You can then tape the slit with packageing tape (recommended for mailing)

Then I just put a piece of wrapping paper where the label use to be, slapped on a tag and put curly ribbon on the neck of the bottler...

Simple as that...hope that gives you all an idea on how this works.
