Anti-bacterial Holders

Hello! It is Crystal here posting for Jaded Blossom's Christmas in July celebration!
I am so very excited to share with you my project today!
I am always looking for last minute little gifts to give to people who cross my daily path during the holidays. I love to surprise people with little gifts that make them smile. I gave these little anti-bacterial holders out a few years ago and everyone loved them! BUT--they were kind of a pain to make..so I called on my friend Ann from SVG Cutting Files to help me simplify the process and here is the final result!
Snow Bear 
Here is a side view so you can see the anti-bacterial hand gel inside

I used the Jaded Blossom Winter Wishes for the sentiment. 

The anti-bacterial hand gel holders will be available at SVG Cutting files this FRIDAY!
Here is a direct link to the item in the store--but don't click there now...THEY won't be released until FRIDAY!
yep..you read that right..THEY--here are the other 3 adorable files that Ann made!
Ginger Cookie 
 I used the Flag Die for the flag, and Christmas Wishes for the sentiment.
And here is a penguin!
 I used the Flag Die for the flag, and Christmas Wishes for the sentiment.
And last a snowman
I used the Jaded Blossom Winter Wishes for the sentiment. 
I put a tulle bow on the tops of each one and they are ready to be given as gifts!
Inside are Bath & Body Works Pocketbacs..I got them on sale 5 for $5.00
 I hope you enjoyed  my projects today!
Make sure to stop by the Christmas in July SALE over at Jaded Blossom
Thank you for stopping by!

The sentiment is from Sweet Birthday Wishes.
Topped it off with a little On the Edge Lemonade Rumple Ribbon from LoveBug Creations and some bling :)
This sweet adorable bear was made by ANNIE KELLY especially for me! It was made from a photo I sent her of the teddy bear I have had since I was 3...Penelope! And in all her AWESOME CRAFTY TALENT Ann made her an SVG file!

I love this little poem. I made several of these last year for a craft show and they sold very quickly!
The senitments are from Reindeer Poop (revamp)

I stamped everything on the Journal Die.
