Whisker Graphics: 12 Days of Christmas





Hello!

Today is my day up on the Whisker Graphics Blog!

This is the first year that my daughter will be in her own apartment (with 2 roomies) for the holidays.  Of course, she will spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with us, but I wanted to make sure that she had plenty of fun & treats during the holiday season.

I used the Whisker Graphics White Kraft Little Bitty Bags as a base for my 12 Days of Christmas project!  I also incorporated the Solid Teal Divine Twine!

These treat bags have everything from Starbucks Gift Cards {my girl doesn't read my blog}, Sees ChocolatesAndes Mints , Lip Balm and even a bit of money so she can spend it HERE.


Originally, I was going to send her daily happy mail but thought that I'd just pop them in the ceramic berry basket for her daily fix.

I tied together the bitty bags by also using kraft doilies:


My girl knows how this all works....she won't toss any of the packaging and recycle everything back to me...yes, I've taught my kids:)






I'll be back with another version for my boy!

I'd love it if you'd stop by the Whisker Graphics Blog and say Hello!

Amy what an awesome twist on an advent calendar!! These little treat bags are so fantastic. Last year I loaded up my son's advent calendar box and mailed it to him. Since it came back home I guess am doing that again! #lovetradition
