Gingerbread Kisses

This year at the Scrapbook Expo I purchased this sweet little die.  It's called, "Candy Cup."  I love the little scallop top and was delighted when I realized how perfect the little gingerbread, from the Scentsational Season stamp set, fit it. He's just as sweet as the candy cup!

Snowflake Tube

Sometimes you just want a fun way to wrap a gift, and using an empty paper towel roll is perfect!  The roll was a little long, so I cut it in half then wrapped it in white tissue paper, then designer paper.  The ends are tied  with lime green tulle.  To make the tag, I used the scallop punch with a couple snowflakes and rhinestones.  If this was given to me, I'd hate to unwrap it. :)

Gingerbread House

This is one of my all time favorite projects!  It's made with the mini milk carton.  The gingerbread man is from the got treats set.  The red and green candies on the side of the house are from the jolly bingo bits set. The door is made with both sizes of the tag punch.  I'm not sure this photo shows the glitter on the roof, but it's the most important.  It gives it the perfect final touch! :)

Mitten Tote

Guess what?  This is my square hinged box template!  You knew I couldn't offer a template without it somehow turning into some type of tote (purse for short, hehe!)  Don't you think it's stinkin' cute!?  I cut off two small pieces and left one edge unscored, and look at the result!! Oh, and... I added a handle. If you'd like to purchase the template please click on "templates for sale." Stay tuned... more ideas using this template to come.

Happy Thanksgiving

I wish you and your family many blessings this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season.

Peeking Santa Lantern

Remember the Halloween lantern I made similar to this one?  I loved how it looked, so I thought I'd try it in a Christmas theme.  Isn't he the sweetest!?  I have a small battery operated tea light inside, which gives it the perfect little glow.  The container is the fancy favor die. To make the window I used the window frames collection framelits and two thin strips of paper. Santa is stamped on vellum and colored with chalk.  I was thinking...wouldn't several of these look cute hanging on a Christmas tree?

Thanksgiving Petitie Purse

This colorful little purse can be used as a party favor or place card for your thanksgiving table.  You may not want to tell the guys it's a purse. :)  I've filled it with candy corns, but there are so many options.
