For my project today, I decided to make a gift and recylce at the same time.  I used a plastic container that cherry tomatoes came in, placed 4 votive candles in it and surrounded them with basket filler. 
On the inside of the lid, I placed a small white piece of cardstock so it looks like it is matted in red like the outer lid.  Tied a red poka dotted ribbon around the outside and tied a bow in the front.  The little reindeer came from Create a Critter cricut cartridge.

The sentiment on the top of the container is from K. Andrews "Fashionable Friends" Stamp set.
K Andrew Designs
K. Andrews stamps are awesome, they stamp clear and they cling beautifully to your acrylic blocks.
Kristal also donates $1 from the sale of every stamp set sold to charity !

Your next stop is Barbara
