Christmas Gifts

It's actually 23rd December today, but I'll be posting this after the 27th, in case certain family members happen to look at my blog over the next few days!  I've been busy making little gifts for three little elves (aged 3, 5 and 6) to hand out as extra little prezzies at a family party on the 27th.  I've got their little elf hats ready!

First are Post-It note holders.  I started with a freestanding  acrylic photo frame and then decorated a piece of 6" x 4" patterned paper.  The Card Candi was attached to the outside of the frame.  Not the best of photos, the Post-It note holders are all the same size, although they look smaller at the back, and I had a bit of a problem with the reflection too.

Next are altered notebooks, I've attached a magnet on the back.  I love these cute little tool brads!

Finally, something for the little elves themselves, which will be at the bottom of the sack.  Personalised drawing books, which started out as plain jotter pads.  I made a cover with embossed card and decorated them all with a Frozen theme. I've got them some crayons too, as a plain drawing book with nothing to draw with, is not a lot of use!

I've lots count of how many snippets I've used today, so I'll be off to play in Pixie's Snippets Playground when this post goes live.

I would also like to enter my Post-It Note holders for the  following challenge:
