'Tis The Season w/Ribbon.....{3GJ Challenge # 30}

Morning and Happy Friday everyone!!

I am back hosting the new challenge for
this week's challenge is~ 
'Tis The Season w/Ribbon

The challenge will be open for 2 weeks, 
November 29th~Dec 12th
so plenty of time to create and share!!

Our challenge is being sponsored by:
3 Girl JAM
with a $10 Gift Certificate to the 3Girl JAM store!
Awesome prizes for sure!!!!
Now onto my project!
I recently won the new Echo Park 'Tis the Season paper pack and couldn't wait to jump into it! I was however holding onto it for the perfect project....
and I think I have found it!
OOOHHHH isn't this so fun??
Here is how I made it~
I used files I picked up from the Silhouette Store
and my cameo to cut the sled and 3 presents, all using the coordinating Echo Park papers.

For each of the presents, I wrapped 3GJ crinkle ribbon in Ribbon Candy, Dress White, and Holly Berry. The great thing about the presents is there is room in them for little treats~so fun!!

Then for the sacks I used the small 2" x 3" Cotton Muslin Bags. They are just the cutest and work awesome for holding 2 chocolate nuggets. Since I wanted them more rustic looking, I un~stitched the top, pulled out the drawstring and using my scissors cut off the top.
I stamped the cut Christmas tree using Peeled Paint Distress Ink and the stamp from My Creative Time~ From Our Family to Yours. I wanted to add a bit more color to it, so I added some stickles to the tree and a yellow dot to the top for the star.
(which you can't see due to my bag being folded alittle)
To finish it off, I tied some Moss Jute String around the top and they were ready for the sled.

My sled needed one more thing....a sentiment which I found fit perfectly.
I used My Creative Time~Stitched Oval Die and again the stamp From Our Family to Yours for the "Believe" adding some black brads and foam pop dots.

I sure hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with us over at the

  3. This is AMAZING, Jessica. So creative and fun. Thanks for sharing with us - your projects are always so awesome. By the way, I started making my M&M treat bags, and holy cow - I've only done 25 and that was two whole bags of M&Ms. I wish they didn't cost so much. Now I see why they need to be at least $1 each. Thanks again for sharing your lovely project with us.
