Holiday Gifts: Teen Gifts by Anita Bownds

Hi Doodlebug peeps 
Anita here with you today sharing some teen holiday gifts created with the milk and cookies collection . I have 3 daughters who love pink and anything cute...but my oldest daughter mel was a Christmas Eve baby, And is turning 21 ...
So what better way to celebrate with a whole lot of cuteness and give some gifts in some really cute gift packaging. I thought I would start with a banner because who doesn’t love a cute handmade Christmas banner hanging with those cute little gifts.

I started by die cutting out some pendant shapes to add the gold foil letters on
Then I backed them on patterned paper and left a little border around the edges 
I punched a hole on each side at the top to thread the twine trough to hand it up
Then using the holly from the cute cake stand cutfile I added them to each end of the banner 

With the tree cutfile I wanted to make a Little Christmas tree decor 
I cut the tree out 3 times and te same with the little star and folding them in half and adhering them together 
To create a 3d tree then to make the stand I die cut 2 small circles and using a strip  of patterned paper 
I made the strip of paper into a cylinder and adhered the to circles to the top and bottom and add the tree in one end

For the gift boxes I used the we are memory keepers 123 punch board to create them
And decorated them with raffer and patterned paper bows also made with the punch board 
And to add a bit more cuteness I added a doily and jewels and to finish them off I needed a few die cut tags ,twine and a cute sticker 

And I thought why stop at boxes when I can add a cute little gif bag using the 123 punch board 
So I add some raffer for the handles some stickers and another cute bow with a jewel in the center and then I created a card using that cute little Christmas tree doodle pop as the center of the card
Layering patterned paper and using a border punch a few doilies and jewels with a popped up sentiment 

Then I decided how cute would it be to add a little tree decor in the mix
Cause maybe one day the will hang it on their tree and remember how fun that Christmas was with family 
So I started with a die cut doily and a strip of patterned paper and using the 123 punch board I scored the paper to fold to create rosette 
Then I adhered it to the diecut doily and added some twine to hand 
Then I added some glitter around the edges of the doily and add a cute little gingerbread man in the center
