#250 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 12/ Doggie Christmas Gift!
Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog HopDAY 12 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot! This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.
Hi everyone I hope you are having a great day! Today is the last day of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! I made a Dog Christmas gift for my dogs I just love to spoil them even at Christmas time and plus I love watching them open their presents LOL! If you are trying to guess how my dogs open their presents, well we usually fill their stockings with treats, bones, pig ear raw hides, and toys and let them "dig" them out it's pretty funny and cute I think this year we will actually film them in action lol! It's so sweet hearing my son giggle and get excited watching the dogs open their presents!
I made this treat present using the Christmas Cards Cricut cartridge (I forgot I had that cart!) I cut the stocking from that cart and did some surgery on it since it only had the top layer and I wanted a red and white stocking! I cut 2 stockings on clear transparency paper I was able to fit 2 on one 8x8 sheet. My Cricut didn't cut all the way so I had to go back and cut the outline out with my Tim Holtz scissors, not bad since it's an easy cut! I stamped the sentiment using Scrappy Moms dog stamp set, and embossed the snowflakes with my Cuttlebug. I also added red/white twine, so this can even be a Christmas ornament too!
My son is so cute right away he said "Oooooh mommy made a dog cookie necklace!" awww the things 4 year olds say! he is so excited that I made the dog's a present lol! As I type my post Aidan is hanging this stocking on the tree and I can hear him say "No Boots, that's for later for Christmas!" I just had to mention that is so cute!!
Here's the back, I was only able to squeeze in 2 small dog treats without popping it open. I adhered the stocking with my ATG gun, I don't really recommend it, since it was popping open as soon as I fit the treats in. I think a hot glue gun, or a wet glue would have been better, or even a stapler.
I love this sentiment "You've got me wrapped around your Paw!" yes my dogs do! they are my little precious balls of fur LOL!
