Christmas in July Blog Hop 7/22 – 7/25
Welcome to my first ever Memories in Tyme Christmas in July blog hop!!! After going to my first blog hop recently, I knew I needed to host my own hop this month for people to start to look at Christmas! The economy is hard right now, what better way to save money by making wonderful things for your friends and family instead of spending a ton of money you don’t have! Plus if you spend a bit of time and money each month, things will not be so hard at the end! Everyone has been working really hard on things this month, and we all hope you enjoy all the fun ideas we are sharing with you!!
If you are starting at my blog – make sure you start at the beginning at Lynda’s blog which is http://memoriesintyme.blogspot.com/. If you came from Kimmarie then you are the right place! :)

Winner will then be chosen from all the comments from followers from the entire event.
Thanks for being a part of this fun blog hop – I hope you have had as much fun as we have had in doing it!

As you can see below there are some Crystal Light Containers that I have and I love to re-purpose things so I thought for Christmas these would be cute as candy containers for some of my groups I am in like my bible study group...and then the candles you can get cheaply from dollar stores as well and they come in sets or singles and very inexpensive and who doesn't like candles and whether they are small like I am showing here or bigger you can basically do the same as I did to these....candy at the dollar store is also the best way to go for you can get variety ones for like 5 dollars and fill the quite a few containers. So this is a nice and simple gift to give along with the candles and you can get a bag and decorate that also and give it away...I have not any bags otherwise I would do it here...lol...you think I would forget that?? :) ...lol...
As you can see I wrapped them in Christmas scrapping paper and embellished with ribbons and the like and used a Circle punch for the buttons of Merry Christmas and then on the candle I used the snowflake puncher and used up the leftover paper again and along with lace...pretty simple but it looks like you took the time to give thought in it and your friends and anyone else will be impressed! :)
Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you come back again! :) Now you need to comment and then go to Elsa's blog! :)
In His Love,
