Winter Gift

Its time for another challenge over at Stamp & Create with Magnolia
 This time the theme is Winter Gifts. There is of course always the seasonal theme too & whilst this is a Christmas gift, the colours are not really traditional Christmas colours, but I wanted the pot to be used all year round, hence the choice of colours & papers.
I recently won top prize over at Whimsy Stamps & got to choose some scrummy papers as part of my prize, so these are what I have used.

I have altered an old glass candle holder & thought it would make a great pen or utensil holder on a craft desk. I covered it inside & out with the above papers. The corners are a Doohickey die, coloured with Spun Sugar TH DI. The top has pink lace around the edge with a little rose in each corner. It is of course filled with Lindt Coconut chocolates which just happen to be a friends favourite chocolates, so perfect for part of her Christmas present. (She doesn't do computers, so no chance of her seeing this lol).
The label I have stamped with Tilda holding 2 little gifts from Christmas Story 2012 collection & coloured with Prismas to match the papers.
Around the edge I have stamped in Pumice Stone TH DI with the Postcard stamps, again Magnolia & tied it with more pink ribbon & pink & white striped twine.
