Pals Holiday Hop


Welcome to the Pals Holiday Hop. If you arrived from Carla's blog you are on the right path. Thought you might like to see what Santa has been busy making in his workshop using his new Big Shot and some Dashing Designer Paper. Here's a preview of what he will be putting in the stockings at the Callahan's this year.


Husband John is a skier and this tag from the Two Tags die makes the perfect wrapping for his SPF 6000 Chapstick.


Gram heads to Florida every year right after the holidays. She will get a paperback and this bookmark also made from the Two Tags die. It might remind her of the snow she is missing (not!) while she reads on the beach. Magnet strips are applied to each end of the tag so that the bookmark will grip the page.








Son Michael loves to make things from duck tape. (Click on his name to see one of his creations - yep that's him in the picture.) Santa made his gift card holder from authentic duck tape and cut it out with the Top Note Die. The gift card is from a local hardware store to buy what else - more duck tape!



Son-in-law Mike is a pilot so it is only fitting that his gift card holder has a flying reindeer on it. Pilots spend a lot of time hanging around waiting at airports like everyone else. This gift card will keep him supplied in coffee for a while.


Daughter Erin is the only family member who reads the blog so Santa won't be telling what is in this box. It is made from the #2 Box die and is large enough to hold a variety of interesting things!




Looks like the Big Shot has become one of Santa's favorite tools. It certainly seems to make holiday wrapping quick and easy! Now if I only knew what Santa will be putting in my stocking..............


Melanie's blog is next so hop on over and see what holiday treat she has for you! Don't forget to leave us a comment or two along the way.
