MCT 12 Days of Christmas- Day 9!

Hello and welcome to day 9 of our 12 Days of Christmas inspiration from My Creative Time! If you arrived here from LeAnne's wonderful blog, then you are in the right place! If not, head over to Emma's blog HERE to see the magic she has created to inspire us and to see today GIVEAWAY!

My project for today is
CHOCOLATE LOVERS GIFT BASKET

I used all My Creative Time stamps for this project. Handstamped tissue paper: snowflake from Build A Banner and snowman from All Around Christmas; custom stamped title: X-Large Fancy Label Die, XL Label Borders, 100% Sweetness and I had to throw in another paper tree lol!
** TIP- If doing tissue paper and you want to bend the edges over like I did here, I learned it's a good idea to stamp images that can't be "upside down" ---see how my snowmen are upside down because I flipped the edges over...it's still cute but I should have thought about it and stamped the snowmen the opposite way just around the top of the tissue paper or just stamped snowflakes :)
Goodies inside my $1 basket include: jar of hot cocoa mix (jar was also $1 at the dollar tree, hot cocoa mix is mix is a homemade recipe and was free!), white chocolate covered pretzels ($1) , 4 Lindt chocolate truffles (.50 cents ea)....get the idea? I love a great bargain!!! ;)
And look at this! It's yet another idea for the Lollipop Die--I decided to make them chocolate dipped spoons YUM! Covered and tied with a little gold bow inside the lollipop die, a perfect fit!!!
