So here we go!
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him. Psalm 37:7
One of the most difficult aspects of prayer is to keep silent and wait patiently for God. It is He who is directing your time of prayer in the days ahead and you can open yourself to renewal as His spirit come to you in the quiet times of a still heart. If you have not yet had your quiet time with God this morning, I encourage you to take a moment and thank Him fo all that you have and all that you are, especially at this busy time of the year, when truly it is all about HIM.
Okay, now for the tutorial! I know with this crazy time of the year we just want to be able to have some goodies to give our friend and neighbors that doesn't cost a lot of money or take too much time, so here is a quick little idea that is perfect for the neighbors, co-workers and friends!
Supplies:one sheet of 12x12 designer paper, adhesive, rectangle tin, chocolate nuggets, adhesive, ribbon, paper trimmer, ink and a stamp set of choice, scissors, 1/4 inch circle punch, scrap of neutral card stock
Step one: Cut 4 strips of designer paper into 1 x 12 pieces, then cut those into 1x 3 1/4 strips (12 are needed)
Next you will want to wrap each nugget with the designer paper and place them in the tin.
Once you have wrapped all the nuggest and placed them in the tin, you will use more of the designer paper and cut a 3x12 inch strip. YOu can now wrap and secure it around the tin.
For this part, I used a scrap of shimmery white cardstock, but you can use whatever you would like. I used my Label classics stamp set (which is retiring soon!) and my craft red ink, although craft ink takes longer to dry, I love the richness if it and the fact that you can emboss with it!, and I used stazon black in. I then cut around the scallops and used my 1/4 inch circle punch and punched a hole, threaded some ribbon and you are done!
You are now DONE! The ornament you see I made with the remaining paper. Just run it through a paper shredder and crumple it up, place inside a clear glass ornament and tie a ribbon around it! All you need is a card and you are good to go!
