HELMAR HOLIDAY HOP



Almost there Girls.........On the home stretch now!
Welcome to the next in line for the Helmar Hop.
You have just come from Jing-Jing's Blog and this is your last stop before heading back to the HELMAR blog.  Ok  lets get to it.........
 I have a short and simple Video on a quick and easy gift idea for one of those last minute giifts you didnt expect you would need, or one for a neighbour or teacher/bus driver!  ( We are just winding up the school year here in Australia!)  What ever the occaision, little gifts like these are cheap and simple, but look really cute, and are great to give away in the Holiday Season.  I have been saving all my containers all year, and have quite the stash, all different shapes and sizes. I something like this created last year by one very clever Mel, and made many myself last year..... All you need is a little Patterned Paper, a few embellishments and some great Adhesive.....HELMAR is your one shop stop!!!!  There is something perfect for every purpose.......In my Project the Adhesive runner, Zap dots and 450 Quickdry did the trick!

Ok.....here we go.....







Hope this gave you some ideas for some quick and easy gifts for Christmas!  It will work for containers of all different shapes and sizes......Just get inventive and you will create something unique and easy!!!
Now remember there are FACEBOOK GIVAWAYS so go 'LIKE' Helmar on FACEBOOK!
AND......Be sure to leave a comment at EVERY stop to be in the running for some prizes!!!!

Ok ladies thanks for stopping by! xx

Time to head back to the HELMAR BLOG to finish up for the day!
