The bottle is simply a Starbucks Frappuccino Bottle. I had the pleasure of emptying it (and did wash it LOL) and then altered it with some scrapbooking paper.
The sentiment is a stamp image. I added a bit of bling for some visual appeal, including gold ribbon and some clear sparkles. I colored the sparkles with a red marker to serves as the berries on the holly.
Filled with green and red M&Ms...we have a great gift that was cost-effective and served dual purpose.
These PLASTIC ornaments were purchased at Michael's. They can be purchased individually or in packages of four.
Using one of our exclusive Cricut Collections, I cut monograms out of black vinyl (also purchased at Michael's) and placed them as shown.
M&Ms fit nicely in the neck of the ornament and a bow was added as the finishing touch.
Mug with Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix
I handmade the tag using a stamp set and colored in 'snow' with the same marker as referenced above. And...you guessed it...another bow! It always makes for the perfect finishing touch, don't you think?!
This recipe was shared by friend and fellow CTMH Consultant, Tricia Leahy.
