Perfect Presentation Holiday Gifts Bloghop

Happy Monday everyone. I hope you all had a good weekend. Today The Perfect Presentation Design team is sharing ideas for holiday gift giving. This is what I came up with

I started by using the new Winter Sleigh SVG file. I cut the sleigh out of PTI Pure Poppy Cardstock and the blades from Dark Chocolate. After I assembled the base. I ran the side panels through my Cuttlebug using the FLEUR DE LIS embossing folder then I added some brown mettalic rub to give it an aged look. Next I added some green flower soft to the top edge so it looked like a garland then I added tiny pearls that I colored with a Copic sketch marker to resemble holly berries. When I was done with that I added a piece of seam binding and a spring moss button. To finish it off I added clear glitter to the blades to look like ice. I filled the sleigh with a bag of coconut sandwhich cookies then I added a tag from this SVG file that I resized and then stamped the Merry Christmas sentiment on from the original Mixed Messages set. The sleigh could also hold many other small gifts as well and it would also make a great center piece on your Christmas table.
Here is the recipe for the cookies if you want to try them. Both Rich and Emilia love them. This is what they look like out of the bag put together

Be sure to check out what Leigh Ann and the other design team members have come up with too.
And our newest member Susan Welcome to the team!
This project also qualifies for the current Embellish Magazine Challenge as well.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and your week is a great one! As always thanks for stopping by.

Oh, I really like your sleigh! Love the embossing on it. I think that gives it much more detail and the edging with the pink berries is sweet. Cookies look mighty fine too!
