Holiday Hop-Along

Today is release day at My Time Made Easy. We always have a group post full of inspirational projects on release day.. So grab a cup a coffee and have fun hopping along :)
Today the group will be sharing a gift idea with each of templates.. Lauren and I are using the new template called To The Point/ Dreidle box. Lauren has a sample of the Dreidle box be sure to check it out HERE. I have made two projects for today . This first one is suppose to look like a pencil. I folded one end in and left the other side out. What a cute way to say Merry Christmas to your favorite teacher.. My decorative layers are cut out using the New paper pack called Hot Holidays. My tag and holly are cut out using Frost bitten cut file. I used Alphabet soup paper and topped it off with a sentiment from Sugar and Spice stamp set. 
Using the same template but assembled it with both ends out I have made a Tree ornament. I just love how Lauren's template are so versatile. When I was cutting out my template I added a piece from the Beautiful Bauble cut file for my opening,  Using a piece of velum so you could see threw it... I place a electric candle inside. I am going to hang this on my Christmas tree using the idea of how they used candles in the old days to decorate. :) Do you think they really did that?!!

Need more inspiration? Check out the MTME DT Gallery, And dont forget to hop around to the other Team members blogs today... There is a ton of eye candy to be seen :)...Monique

You did another amazing job Monique. I love everything you create. That will look so pretty hanging from your tree. Of course, I also loved the bow you put on top of your pencil tag.
