A Handmade Christmas

Here is a little photo collage of my handmade Christmas gifts. I chose to make Irish Cream (yummy!), pecan balls, and "Joy" ornaments. I found the free garland template on another blog (I'm trying to desperately to remember which one), and used it for my ornaments and the labeling on my packages.I purchased wooden crates for the containers, attached decorative branches, and pine cones, layered the inside with shredded Christmas wrapping (thanks paper shredder you did a great job!), and added a Merry Christmas photo for the final touch. All in all I'm very pleased with the results. Did you make your gifts this year? Now I'm off to finish my mom's gift, which I will post pics of next week!
