30 Days of Handmade Gift Giving Blog Hop!

Hi everyone I hope you are enjoying all the great gift ideas, I know I am because this year in our family it will be a handmade gift type of year. 
Of course there are also great handmade gifts to give to family, friends, coworkers, friends from church, teachers, babysitters, so many wonderful gifts to give that always makes someone smile. 
If you are from Playing with Paper, then you are in the right spot. If you just started you can go to the beginning at The Scrapoholic. There are so many awesome ideas, plus her blog is pretty cool, well all the blogs are pretty cool.
Well my gift is fairly simply, I love Hot Chocolate and love to give some away as gifts. So I made a cute label to put on a Christmas mug to give as a gift to someone, not telling who, could be someone who is going to read this blog so I cant tell. 

I used my Cricut to cut the label, I used the exclusive Close To My Heart Cricut® Art Philosophy cartridge, 

You can use any thing you want to create the label or just use a card, which ever works best for you. All the papers and stamps came from the Wonderland kit.


I popped dot the mug. added a little bling.


I added the hot chocolate in a little bag, tied it with waxy flax, from CTMH, added some Cinnamon, because I love the smell of Cinnamon.   I also added a ribbon to the handle. The Mug probably from the dollar store or Walmart. 

 Thanks for looking, I hope everyone is enjoying the gift giving blog hop. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see Day 23. If you would like to leave a comment I would love it.
