Handmade Gifts for my Card Club Friends

I belong to a monthly card where we actually play cards, not make them:) We have a great time with lots of laughing and talking playing Canasta and other card games. Every December we all go out to lunch at a lovely tea shop and exchange presents. I found this calendar/notepad box with drawers perfect for candy here on Vicki Dutcher's blog and decided to give it a try. It wasn't hard- except the tutorial that Vicki linked to had a minor mistake in the measurements. It referred to 1/6 of an inch and I struggled for the longest time with that. What the heck is 1/6th of an inch on a ruler? Tried all sorts of adjustments and calculations- then I looked at the picture of a ruler and realized- she meant 1/16th (she was dividing 2 1/8th inches in half- so 1 1/16th- ohhhhh. So if you try it and go to the tutorial, keep that in mind. I also made this for the girls:

The snowflake on the front of the jar of sweet and salty snack mix was made with my favorite snowflake die from Tonic Gold and the stamp that says it all on the top is by Great Impressions.

I am entering these projects in the Anything Goes challenges at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas and at Crafty Friends Challenge.

Awesome gifts. Where do you find time to make all of them? I love all those ideas though. My gifts are simply paper plates filled with cookies. Not very crafty am I?
