Songs of Christmas Blog Hop

Welcome to the Songs of Christmas Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends!  You should have arrived here from Jodi's blog.

Our Blog Hop is all about the Songs of Christmas and the inspiration for my project comes from the song Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.

I created this adorable sleigh, Santa card, envelope, and cute little chocolate bar sleeves for the blog hop.  I found the SVG file from SVG Cuts and had to play around with it! I am in charge of the Christmas party for my work and ended up making sixteen of each of these to give out as a gift to everyone.

I used a couple buttons to jazz up the side of the sleigh

On the card I used liquid aplique and glitter to give Santa's hat a little sparkle and dimension. 

I also added some bakers twine around the brads to frame my project a little more.

Finally for my envelope I used the envelope punch board from We R Memory Keepers to create an envelope that was specific to my card size. To jazz up my envelope I added some coordinating bakers twine around the envelope.

Last but not least I made these really cute chocolate bar sleeves to go along with the gift for everyone at my work.

I had so much fun creating these projects for the blog hop and my Christmas party. I am hoping that my project inspires you to get out some of your Christmas paper, glitter, and glue and create something special for someone this holiday season.

So remember, in order to be entered to win the special prize all you have to do is hop from Blog to Blog and leave a comment on each as you go.  Then simply check back at the Two Scrapbook Friends blog on December 10th to see if you are the lucky winner!
