It's the big Saturday Handmade Gifts Hop with Stampendous and the designers! I'm second in the hop so you've probably come from Cyndi's blog and please start at the beginning if you just happened on to this post. Throughout the week you've had a chance at some prizes, because it's just not a party otherwise, and it's the same for today! There will be THREE prize winners today for those that comment along the hop. You can find out the winner's on Monday over on the Stampendous Blog
It's pretty hard to come up with a different way to give a gift these days, so I'm combining a couple ideas. I have a few people in my life that live on the lean side of life. They don't want or need a whole lot of material things in their life so it can make for a hard decision on what gift I give for them.
So I went with small scale table decorations. Something that could brighten up their small space and be practical. A small poinsettia print flower tea light. Here's a string of photos to show how this tealight went together.
More gift giving ideas from past posts.

Paper: Vellum, green cardstock
Ink: any slow drying ink so the embossing powder will stick to the stamped pattern
