A nut for a NUT!...BBTB Challenge

OK, I know there are some of you out there or at least have DHs that do this...wait until the last minute to do Christmas shopping. So I decided to go with that theme for this past week's Bitten By the Bug challenge which was to use the Nutcup cut from Tags Bags Boxes & More. We were asked to do a Christmas project with it and since it's the nutcup I starting thinking of all those nuts that go out shopping on Christmas Eve. And I know how many people do that as I used to work part-time for Linens N Things. You would not believe how many people would come in, even on the edge of closing time, for gifts or even worse...stuff for entertaining for their Christmas dinner guests! And the killer was...if what they were looking for was sold out...how enraged they would get! Hmmmm, a Chocolate Fondue Fountain on sale at an amazing price in the Christmas flyer, gone by the end of Christmas Eve store hours, how could that be?!?!?
