Thanks for stopping by! I have a number of empty hot chocolate/coffee containers hanging around just waiting to be "upcycled". When I saw the WRAP it UP challenge over at Crazy for Challenges, I looked at the empty hot chocolate container on that has been cluttering up my kitchen counter for weeks and said to myself, "Just do it already!" Wee Memories challenge this week is for Bags, boxes & tags, so I will share over there as well!

So - here is my first altered project for Christmas!

First the matching tags - I guess I uploaded backwards...

I have plans with a couple of friends to get together next weekend and do up a bunch of these types of projects - bags, boxes & tags so we are ready to go when Christmas gets closer. It promises to be a fun afternoon!

This paper has been hanging about in my stash for a coon's age - I bought it because I love penguins, but found it difficult to use for cards. Glad to finally find a use for it!

Oh, and I almost forgot...I would like to share this over at The Ribbon Girl for their Jingle all the way to Christmas challenge!

I hope you are having a great weekend!

After Tae Kwon Do class and a stop by my LSS to shop for the new Bo Bunny line, my goal is to get eliminate Halloween from the landscape! I've had enough of looking at it (time to move onto Christmas) but have only had time to remove a few things so far. Out with the spooky, in with the festive!
