Christmas tea and cookies

I can’t believe Christmas will soon be here already!  Have you started your holiday shopping?  Or are you already done?  (envious if you are!)

This week the Scor-pal Designers are excited to be sharing some last minute gift ideas using product from our friends at Jillibean Soup.

You’ll want to stop by the Scor-pal blog each day this week for new ideas and to leave a comment. Next Monday we will choose one random comment from the week to win a Scor-buddy. Which is perfect for creating last minute gifts or given as a gift for the special crafter in your life.

Also, be sure and stop by the Scor-pal Fan Page and leave a comment too because we will be giving away a Scor-Tape prize pack over there to someone who left a comment both there *and* on the blog. Because, after all, when you are making special gifts you want them to stay together and you want the best ;^)

Of course, be sure and stop by the Jillibean Soup Blog  too because they are playing along with Scor-pal this week as well! 

Today I have a last minute gift idea to share for those occasions when time creeps up on you and you need a “little something” to give a friend, neighbor, or co-worker. 

I used the cute line of Jillibean Soup papers called Christmas Eve Chowder (*love these papers*) to create a little Coffee Cup and a matching Cookie Box

Inside the Coffee Cup is a cello wrapped Keurig tea pod and a few mints.  The cup could also be altered a bit to make it slightly taller, thus it could hold 2 stacked Keurig pods…just a thought…hmmm.  Maybe next time.  :)

The top of the Cookie Box was decorated with additional paper and matching cardstock stickers.  The directions show how to slip the tab on the lid inside the box, and tie a ribbon closure.  But I chose to keep the tab to the outside and punch a decorative snowflake border.  Two tiny pieces of velcro  under the tab help to keep the lid closed.

The little fella in green had a ball on top of his hat…it was the perfect size to add a half pearl.  I also added some Stickles here and there to make them sparkle.

I cut some trees from scraps of paper to add to the ends of the box.  A cardstock sticker was added too.  Not too busy…but just enough.

My cookies turned out larger than I planned, but who’s complaining?  LOL.  I just turned them and slipped them into the box facing the front.  A piece of tissue paper makes a nice lining.

And here’s a discovery I’ve made…if you don’t want to give cookies (what?  no cookies?) then a row of tea bags fits perfectly!

I hope you will gain some inspiration from our Holiday Gifts ideas…have fun preparing for this most blessed holiday!
