Bee Merry

Every year we have a big Christmas get together with my family.  It's wonderful getting everyone together!  We have pretty much phased out gift giving and concentrate on good food and lots of laughter, but I like to have a little "favor" to hand out to my nieces.   
This year I'm making these little lip balm holders.

I used a digital stamp from Paper Smooches.  I colored with alchohol markers and I was pleasantly surprised that the ink did not smear!  My printer is ancient!  The little Santa hat is from the Paper Smooches set Merry Motifs.  Oops! Almost forgot. The snowflakes (stamped in Versamark) and the inside sentiment are, too!

Here is a peek at the inside:

And one more of a few of the merry little "swarm":

I'm entering these in the SPARKS Anything Goes Challenge this week.

I spent a few quiet hours on the Paper Smooches website making my holiday wish list!  Be sure to check out the adorable images HERE

Happy Friday!


  1. love Mr. Bee as the focal and for the holidays! such a fun and clever project! love the coloring and design! thanks so much for joining us this week at Paper Smooches SPARKS!

  2. Making your own personal gifts is the best idea, especially when they are this sweet!! I vote for food and good times at Christmas too, I'm working this year but will be taking something yummy for sure!
