Blog Hop!

It’s time for The Stamping Boutique‘s Thrifty Christmas – Making Handmade Gifts Blog Hop!  I hope you’ll join in the fun!  It will run all weekend, ending on Sunday, December 11th (11:59 pm CST) to allow you plenty of time to hop.

**If you have come here from Sandy’s blog, then you are on the right track.  If not, please head over to Christy’s blog to start at the beginning (You can also see the complete blog hop order at end of this post).

You will want to be sure to visit each design team member’s blog and leave a comment as each one will be giving away one TSB image!

If that isn’t enough to entice you to hop with us, maybe this will:  1 random person (who comments on all the DT blogs and leaves a final comment on the Stamping Boutique blog) will be selected to win a $25.00 gift certificate for the store!  How fabulous is that?!

Since I can’t resist giving the gift of coffee and chocolate, I decided to make a cute little gift package using a brown paper sack folded in half to create two pockets:  one for a home made chocolate brownie and one for a Starbuck’s gift card!  The perfect combination!  I’m thinking this would be a great little gift for co-workers, friends or neighbors!

Now head on over to Sue’s blog for more Thrifty Christmas inspiration!


Here is the blog hop order in case you get lost along the way:

    YUM! I love 'Thrify' and this is a SUPER gift wrapping idea… sometimes the plain old gift-card holders get so boring and I love your 2-pocket option!
    Thanks for the GREAT idea… I think I know some people who will appreciate your creativity when they find something similar in their stockings! (-:
