A Couple of Holders

Here's a couple of holder-type things I made. The first is a chap stick/lip balm holder. I saw these on SCS and thought they were so cute. And the ladies there are so wonderful at posting directions and template for so many different projects. I am very thankful for that!

I made these for a couple of the teenage girls in the family in which I needed just a little gift. I may be making a few more of these.

This shows the inside and the outside.

And then I found the M&M Christmas Story on SCS as well. I really liked it and since I had a couple bags of Christmas M&M's I decided to do something with them. I needed a little treat to send with CJ for his Friday Science class. I used small bags to put the M&M's in, so making a topper with this poem was a bit too big.
So I printed it out, scored it in a couple places and make a little tent to hold the M&M's. I had seen things like this done all over the place and it was easy enough to adapt to be the right size.

These two go along with the chap sticks above. I made more for CJ's class, but they were in green. I didn't think to take a picture of them, but other than the color, they were exactly like these.

I'm trying to take pictures of everything I'm making as I go along. I'm just slow getting them posted because I've been so busy! And some of them I won't be able to post until after Christmas anyway.

I'll be so glad when I'm all done! But I'm having fun!
