Poinsettia n' Pistachio Present...

Prissy Poinsettia from Robyn's Fetish
This weeks challenge is a fun one.  Ready?
This can be something that you've made to give as a gift
Has an image of a gift!
It's all happening over at
With 3 amazing Sponsors for this challenge

It doesn't stop there...
Check out Moriah's wonderful tutorial 
on these cute little cones and all the diverse ways you can use them!

Here's my project...
I won't quote much, it's pretty self-explanatory from beginning to end.

Just a plain nut can wrapped in material and embellished.
Altered art is not my forte, but I gave it a try.
Thought it might make a nice little spare button holder; which is why I made a pin cushion and mounted it to the lid.
My son got a good laugh with this one when I told him I thought it looked like a country Dalek from Dr. Who. :)

Here it is all wrapped up and sporting the beautiful poinsettia from Robyn's Fetish

Hugs and Happy Stamping....

I'm so disappointed that I saw this and ruined my Christmas surprise... I just know that the beautiful container full of copics was intended for me, right???
This is the most beautiful repurposed container and the finished wrapping is gorgeous!

Hi Lisa: Thanks for stopping by my blog for Top Tip Tuesday. I appreciate it. I'd love to hear about some of the goodies you've seen come through your Thrift Store. My sister-in-law bought an antique spinning wheel for $19 at hers - unreal!
Blessings to you,

Not your forte, huh? I love it and what a great way to store Copics. Guess what I am collecting next? :-)
Great job as usual and very, very inspiring!!
