Day 7 - Warm Up Someone's Winter

When the weather outside is frightful, what better gift to give than the gift of warmth?  Whether it be something to warm your insides or your outside, it's a present that's sure to be appreciated this winter!  Below are two gifts that are easy to make and warms the recipient with holiday love:

Hi, this is Allie from Minnesota and I am counting down to Christmas by taking a holiday class.  I highly recommend my teacher, Jennifer Priest.  Learn about her Etsy shop, her amazing classes, projects, and more at Hydrangea HippoThis "Gift in a Jar" is my first homework assignment for Jennifer's Nifty Gifty class going on now at My Creative Classroom
Here is my easy recipe for a quick, hearty potato soup.

My Potato Soup Mix
   1 1/2 cups potato flakes
   1/2 cup dry milk
   2 tablespoons spinach dip mix
Directions for Soup
   Bring 7 cups water to a boil.  Add 2 tablespoons butter.  Slowly add mix, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  (Optional, add two tablespoons sour cream.)

Something tasty from the heart is a nice way you can share your art...Allie Gower
Below, Karissa has made a warm winter gift for the tea lover in all of us:
1.       Cut cardstock 8 ½ x 3 ½
2.       Score at 4 and 4 ½
3.       Cut patterned paper 6 x 6
4.       Fold at 2 ½  x 2 ½ x 1
5.       Score at 2 ¾ and 3 ¼
6.       Glue down the back side of patterned paper to inside of cardstock
7.       Place a tea bag in each pouch
8.       Run  24” piece of ribbon around outside leaving enough ribbon on both sides to be able to tie a bow on top.  Glue this down.
9.       Decorate front of it however you want!

Keep warm and keep crafting!!  Be sure to come back tomorrow for some more holiday inspiration!
