Aurora Wings- Cherry Sprite "Have a Very Cherry Christmas" Gift Tag and Cherry Preserve Gift Basket

Now how sweet is she?? Totally adorable right!! And she can be all yours this weekend with ANY purchase over at the Aurora Wings Etsy Store for FREE!! Yup a free gift with purchase that is beyond adorable!!! So go get her!! Well... right after you take a peak at the adorable-ness I created with her!!

This past summer a complete stranger came into the restaurant I work at and asked if anyone wanted 40lbs of fresh BC cherries... I was skeptical I admit but after talking to him I took him up on his off and Wanda and I got to work dealing with all these cherries!! Now 40lbs is a lot of cherries to deal with!! It took us 3 days to pit them all (keep in mind we have children and job ect) and 2 days to process them all into different kinds of cherry goodness!!
We decided to do some little mini jars of Cherry Jam, Cherry Pit Syrup and Drunken Cherries. Then we thought we would put them in little fruit baskets and wrap em up for Christmas Gifts for teachers, bus drivers, coaches, all those random people that are so important to our tiny humans and deserve something extra special to enjoy while getting a break from our tiny humans! LOL

We found white fruit baskets at Michaels and I misted mine with Heidi Swapp Sweet Cherry mist; wrapped it all up in cellophane and tied this adorable Cherry Sprite to her with a Christmas Greeting inside. I am so in love with how they turned out!! A few days of hard work + 1 day of coloring and crafting= 20 adorable Christmas Gifts!!

Now back to the Freebie and Gift code for the weekend!! Take a peak below for all the details!! And I will check you later!! Thanks for popping by!!


I am entering this project in the World Wide Open Design Team Challenge!!
