Teresa Collins 'In Time for the Holidays' Blog Hop!

Teresa Collins 'In Time for the Holidays' Blog Hop!

Welcome to Day 4 of the Teresa Collins Holiday Hop! 

Today I have another gift idea for the teenagers or those who don't commit to telling you what they want for Christmas! 

As I mentioned before, I use my Teresa Collins embossing folders and eBosser for everything! From BIG to small. 

Today, I was inspired by this pin idea and thought, well that's cool! But the water in the globe would make it hard to get your gift card! 

Instead I looked around the internet and found a lot of mason jars mini globes with small trees, and I wanted to dress up a very simple $10 dollar bill to make it more special.

So, I went back to Dollar Tree (Yes, I'm CHEAP) and got a two pack of tiny Christmas trees (they are in the Christmas decor section) I used my eCraft to cut a heart out of cardstock and folded into a tiny envelope to hold the $10 dollars. 

Then I used my Teresa Collins eBosser and Starburst embossing folder (also by Teresa) to add some texture to the tiny envelope. I sealed the envelope with a heart sticker.

I used my hot glue gun to glue the tiny tree on the mason jar lid, and added some cotton balls and tiny ornaments I had for cardmaking  I had. Then I put a little glitter in the jar for added sparkle and stamped cardstock with a Holiday Stamp and glued on the tree. I then put  the tiny envelope and closed the jar.

The end result is a festive, more personal touch to a simple  giftcard or dollar bill.
