Fun and Easy Neighbor Gift Idea...

Kassidy helped me out alot this year and decided to make gifts to give out to our neighbors.

This is what she made...
This is what she used...a package of kettle corn...a pair of stretch gloves...10" of green ribbon...a piece of copy paper...a red heart punched from scrap paper...a carrot cut from orange scrap paper...scissors...tape and a fine point marker.

She wrapped the popcorn in the copy paper...

Placed the stretch gloves on top for his hat (one glove is inside the other) and tied the green ribbon round the middle and trimmed.

She used pop glue dots to add the carrot nose and the heart...and finished them off with coal eyes and mouth which she drew with a marker.

She signed the back "Merry Christmas from the Holt's"...and placed them in a basket for delivery.
Oh ....I almost forgot!...she thought the snowmen looked a little washed out ...lol...so she added some blush makeup to thier cheeks!
Kassidy's snowmen gifties were inspired by this cute one that my friend Debbie from Busy as Can Be gave to me.
Debbie was inspired by THIS BLOG.

Well...before you know it Christmas Eve will be upon us...are you ready?
Pin It!

I LOVE these snowmen! What a fantastic idea! I am so not ready for Christmas. I'm at work until about 4 on Christmas Eve and I still have to bake all of my biscuits as presents and also to finish knitting the ted bed I've been knitting FOREVER... oh, and I'd better wrap the gifts at some point... PANIC!

This is a cute idea!

Good idea to have a snowman theme with all that snow you have been getting. I think we need a 'rainman' theme.
Merry Christmas!

How cute is that?! I love how she put rosy cheeks on the snowman. Sounds like she is as creative as her Mom! Wishing I was one of the neighbors today :)

Oh that is the cutest. I can't get over how detail oriented you guys always are! Great idea. I'll have to store that away for next year.

Lori I love Kassidy's snowmen. I might have to do this with my grandbabies, we might have a few crooked noses, but it will be fun.
Merry Christmas to you and your family,
Bonnie

Cute, adorable and genius. Of course. Hope you had a nice holiday. I have been wondering what the kids thought of the puppy. I've been going to text you but things are just now starting to calm down at my house. Almost glad to come to work today.
