JustRite Penguin Gift Set

I LOVE it when a gift set comes together! I found the stuffed penguin ornament this summer and fell in love with it. Then, I spied this hot chocolate mix at a coffee shop/store I frequent. (more on that in future posts) And would you believe it, I walked into Dollar General a few weeks back, and there was this penguin bucket! So the visions of a penguin gift set began!
Did you notice the penguin on the bucket is holding a peppermint candy? I just adore the bucket color with that splash of red! So festive! For the sentiment safety pinned to the penguin, I used JustRite's A Merry Little Christmas Set. The peppermints are Copic colored and covered with a touch of crystal effects. I was going for that look of the shiny paper the candies are wrapped in.
Here are the Copics used on the tags. Miscellaneous snowflakes embellish the hot chocolate packet. The penguin and packet are nested in a black ceramic mug! I inadvertently left out BG13 and YR09.
Close of this adorable penguin found in JustRite's Christmas Joy set. He too, is Copic colored. Tag is attached to the gingham bow made with Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply ribbon. Bakers string from Martha Stewart.
There are so many versatile centers and borders in these sets! Not all for Christmas, many can be used during the winter season as well. I am so tickled A Merry Little Christmas Set has A Happy New Year center...I have an idea using this one!
Talk about all the elements coming together, from the penguin theme items, to the JustRite stamping. If you wanted to personalize a gift set, your JustRite fonts would be perfect! (I am gifting this set to be used as a door prize, so I don't know who will get it or I would have done just that!) Hope you all are keeping warm! I am so thankful for the warmth of our home, we are blessed. Take good care and thanks so much for stopping by today, I appreciate it!
