Gifts: Let's Get Hopping Round 37

 Hey Y'all!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And the Let’s Get Hopping crew is sharing some gift ideas for you. I chose to feature the Heartwarming Hugs Suite from the 2020 Holiday Mini Catalog. 

Now me being a Southern girl, I had to incorporate Mason jars in my project. I was so happy that small jelly jars fit into the Mini Coffee Carrier. My mom made Strawberry Fig Preserves and Peach Fig Preserves this summer, and I asked her to make some for me for this very reason, to give as gifts.

I used the DSP and Real Red cardstock to make a band around the carrier. I also dressed up my jar lids with die cut circles from the Stitched Shapes dies. 

I created the tag with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch and Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I added some of the DSP to the top, and I love the Scalloped die...I used it to make the scalloped edge in the bottom of the tag. 
There are so many things you can do with this suite!  I hope I have sparked your imagination, now fan that flame! Click the arrow to hop over to my friend Eimear Carvill and see what she has in store!
