christmas decoration and gift idea

i must apologize for my post being late and typical for the time of year when everything just takes hold of you and you feel you have no time.
Anyway back to the gift/decoration idea. So around October time i bought some large plastic baubles from hobby craft and thought that these would be great to put in small Christmas gifts and i could also use my old paper scraps to decorated them

So used my dies to cut out leaves, roses from the tattered pine cone die by sizzix, basic flower shape and holly shape. I inked the edges and went about arranging them how i liked and adhered with hot glue. Found a wooden reindeer i purchased from a local Christmas market along with the word "merry" die cut from some gold sparkly paper i had stashed away. Added some glitter glue to the sides of the rolled up roses and a red button
Here are some close ups

If  you do not have these specific dies, use punches, draw a template or cut a circle and use your scissors to spiral this circle and roll up into a flower. It will use up all your unwanted scraps of Christmas paper and make a unique gift.
