I made three little things for my Secret Santa Person, and I stuck with a theme/color-Blue Winter. 
The first project is a decoupaged Candle.  I use a simple white pillar candle.  I used some blue metallic wrapping paper and and cut out a Snowman face from some other wrapping paper.   I decoupaged them onto the white candle.  Then I sprinkle some glitter onto the top and sides of the candle.  Just a  very tiny amount of glitter on snowman picture.  I put some ribbon around the top and bottom.

My second little gift project is a mini tree.  I used a small stryofoam cone, pearl tipped pins, and 3 different patterns of winter blue scrapbook paper.  I used my Cricut and George Cartridge to cut 1 in.circles.   I inked around the edges of the circle, crumpled them a little bit, and then stuck them on the tree in a varying pattern.

My last gift project for my Secret Santa is an adorable little SNOWMAN!   I got the pattern from Aunt and I just had to try to make him.  He just turned out so adorable. 

Since it is Christmas and I am in the mood, I will give away blog candy to two lucky hoppers.  First blog candy is one of the cute little snowman with either pink, blue or red hat.  Second blog is one of the cute little trees in your choice of Red, Green, or Blue .  All you need to do is be a follower of my blog, leave a comment on each person blog.  I will pick the winner on Monday!
Please go to Jackie http://papermoments.blogspot.com/  next!!!

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again real soon.
