Christmas Gifts

So today, I have some gift packaging to share with you, I made a lot of my Christmas gifts this year, keeping old jars and filling them with homemade Lemon Salt Hand Scrub and I purchased some gorgeous glass bottles and made alcoholic gifts too! No fancy equipment needed, just a bit of planning ahead as the drinks take time to mature.
So, to start with here is the hand scrub jars, I printed the directions on the computer after wrapping the jar in So Saffron DSP from the stacks,
 Scallop spotty ribbon around the lid with the (retired) tart and tangy lemon on the top
 I also found some lovely wooden spoons on Amazon, which I stamped for that finishing touch, using Staz on,
So, onto the alcohol, I made Limoncello and decorated the bottles using Pool Party and Calypso Coral with the Four Frames and the matching punch,
 and a gem brad with a small punched circle to decorate the top
 the same stamp set was used to decorate the Sloe Gin bottles, I just distressed these with the crumb cake ink pad and a sponge dauber
 and a circle of glittery Berry Bouquet DSP to top it off
 and here are all the goodies together, they recipients were all happy with their gifts (I think) so a good job, well done.
 Well, I hope you like the packaging today and if you want any of the recipes they are all easily searchable on the tinterweb or Pintrest.
Thanks as ever for stopping by today,
