12 Days of Christmas

This is what I gave my partner for our 12 Days of Christmas exchange.

My partner loves butterflies and I was planning a little butterfly related quilt until she saw this bundle of fat quarters I had brought to our fall in-city retreat and fell in love with them.  I wanted to figure out a way to highlight the totems.  Plus I thought it would be great to work in bears paws blocks.  Here is the end result.

To go with the mug mat, I added a Christmas mug and made hot chocolate mix and marshmallows.

I decided to wrap the parcels in brown paper and stamp the numbers on the parcels.

If you do that, just keep track of which stamp pad you're using!

You made the marshmallows? Are they hard to do?
