Classmate Eraser Gift - Day 5 of The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time

Hello my friends!
It is day 5 of the 12 Days of Christmas at MCT.  Today I have a project I am doing for my children to give their classmates.  We are not aloud to send in any kind of food for holidays or birthdays so when I saw these cute candy shaped erasers I was thrilled.  They are even peppermint scented!
 
I used the Vintage Stitched Label Dies and Vintage Label Stamp Set to make the holder.

 

 I cut out two labels and made slits in the back of one to slip the eraser through. Then I put glue on the edges and pressed them together.
 
 
 

 
 The ornament stamp is from the Noel on From Our Home To Yours Stamp Set.  I masked the rest of the stamp with scotch tape.
 
Other Fabulous Supplies I Used:
Twisty Stix Scented Erasers and Metal Bells  -  Michaels
Holly Day Wishes 6x6 Paper Pad  -  Recollections
 This and that Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad -  Echo Park
Ripe Avocado Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Festive Berries and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks
Lady Bug, Rich Cocoa and Tuedo Black Inks  -  Memento
Red Gems
Black Enamel and Glossy Accents
 
 
HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT!
Okay, since it's Christmas, Emma decided to give away TWELVE of her FAVORITE things to ONE LUCKY person! She will announce one of the prizes for each day in her video! So by the 12th day, you will see ALL 12 items that ONE lucky person will be receiving! All you have to do is leave your comments each day! It's that simple! ALSO, **VERY IMPORTANT** Please leave your contact information so we can contact you "IF" YOU are the lucky winner!
 
I hope we have given you some inspiration for your holiday preparations!  I am in awe of my fellow memers of the MCT Design Team!  Fabulous job my sweet friends!
Have a fabulous day!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn :)

After this week, I am adding the vintage stitched label die to my wish list. So many great projects featured it. I love that eraser...so fun for the kiddos and a thankful reprieve from the candy canes that come home. Thanks for sharing. slbuller at fullchannel dot net.

You did a great job decorating those die cuts! Too bad the kids will probably just tear them off and throw them away -- I'd try to keep it if it were given to me. TFS!
