Any Way You Slice It - Group Post!!

When we last left off -- we were dealing with bugs...well, I think it was a false alarm...I never did find anything, and when she went back to school, the nurse checked her and didn't find anything either... *sigh*  That's ok though...now we've moved on to other bugs...same daughter, different issue.  So, she was out of school on Tuesday because of 'lice'.  Then she went to school Wednesday, and when I got there to pick her up, she was running a temp of 101!  My poor girl :(.  So, we were home again today, doing lots of snuggling (which *I* certainly don't mind ;) ).  She seems to be feeling better this evening though, so I think it will be back to work/school tomorrow...

I hope you've been enjoying the release at My Time Made Easy this month!!  Today is a group post, and I'm featuring a great little template called 'Any Way You Slice It'... Yep, it could be cake, or pie, or a reindeer, or a flag, or...well, goodness...it could be a lot of things, ha ha ha.  I chose to make a cute little Secret Santa gift box, that looks like a Santa hat (which I'm a bit embarrassed, because as I went to link the stamp set, I realized I made a similar template to Lauren *blush*) but here's my version...
The template features images from Secret Santa and Fanciful Flourishes.  It's VERY sparkly :)  I used heat and stick powder and lots of red and silver glitter.  Here's a closer view of the side:
The bottom of the box is lined with white maribou fur.  Totally fun.  I sometimes like to give fun ornaments like the one in the background as secret santa gifts, and an ornament, or a gift card with some chocolate will fit nicely inside this box for sure!!
My tag features images from Secret Santa, and has a bit of sparkle added here too.  The hat was stamped on a separate piece of CS, colored in and cut - and mounted on the tag with a dimensional.  

What kinds of things do YOU give for secret Santa gifts...inquiring minds want to know!! lol.

Be sure to drop by the rest of the team's blogs, as we've each got something to share with you today!!!

love it- that fur totally makes it look like the big guy's hat! FUN! (and thanks for the visit to May Arts!)

OH.MY.WORD.! This is just too cute. Love the sparkle that you added and the fur is the perfect touch. Since we do Secret Santa at work, I like to give little goodies that can be used at the office. Holiday post it notes and a holiday pen, ornament, a cute little trinket to set on the desk or a cute coffee mug.

Glad your little one is feeling a bit better. I'm sure the snuggling was just what the doctor ordered.

Oh, your poor baby! Hope she's feeling better real soon.

Love your little gift box!
