There are several youtube videos explaining how to make these crackers. I thought it would be much harder, but they're simple and fun to make. I filled mine with kisses (Hershey) and confetti to bring in the new year. :)
I finally used my Wondrous Wreath stamps and framelits. It definitely takes time and practice, but the outcome is beautiful. A little washi tape and the wreath on a mason jar is a fun way to package a Christmas gift.
I wish I could take credit for coming up with this fun holder for the mini coffee cups. I can only take credit for how I decorated it. I found the instructions on Sue Becker's website at rnrstamping.com. She has simple and easy to follow instructions. Thanks for sharing Sue!
Isn't this cute?! I was going for something completely different and this was my outcome! :) I made a gift card holder with my envelope maker and attached Andes mints for legs. The shoes are made from the top note die. I cut it into four even pieces by cutting through the middle, both directions. I used the 1 1/4 circle punch to cut a notch in two of the pieces. The white piece on top of each shoe is the christmas tree from the holiday collection framelits. I cut it in half, then cut a little from the top and bottom, and presto... fur for the shoes! So cute!! :)
A little holiday cheer! The small Martinelli's sparkling white grape drinks are so darn cute! They make perfect gifts for Christmas, which in turn can be used for New Year's. I've attached a little pouch with a mini Ghirardelli chocolate, for an added treat. I'd keep this for myself if I liked white grape juice. :)
I used my sizzix candy cup die along with the 2 3/8 and 1 3/4 scallop punches to make this tiny turkey. The red thingy hanging from his nose (I don't know the technical name) is the stem off one of the pumpkins, in the fall fest framelits dies. He is so darn cute! :)
I saw projects made with these mouse traps last year, but didn't get a chance to make one. They're kinda gross, in a fun sort of way. :) I have a package of Reese's Pieces tied to the bottom of mine. A little gross and a little sweet make for a great Halloween treat.
Guess what I used to make this cauldron? The labels collection framelits. Fun huh?! A little snip off the top and bottom and it's a cauldron. Who knew? :) The green drippy stuff is made with a Martha Stewart punch and the little greeting is from the tee-hee-hee stamp set in the new Stampin' Up! holiday catalog.
I knew I had to have the Merry Everything stamp set, specifically for this stamp. Imagine how excited I was when I found this gross, but oh so cute treat, at the dollar store! :) They are perfect together!!
Instead of indivually wrapping each Hershey Miniature, I wrappped several of them and tucked them into the bottom half of the matchbox die. The trick or treat stamp is one of my favorites. I think the glimmer paper and ribbon give it a bit of glamour. :)
Here is another treat box made with the top half of the Stampin' Up! Hamburger box die. I knew I wanted to make another one specifically for Halloween, so here it is. I can't wait to fill it with Halloween treats!
This is what you get when you use green and black paper and turn the Sizzix food jar die upside down, a bewildered Frankie :) Because of my obsession with Halloween, I usually imagine everything as a Halloween project. I'm so excited to start making Halloween things!!!
It's back to school time, so I created a quick and simple matching pen and notepad. I used a small package of sticky notes and made a cover with the scalloped tag topper punch. The hardest part of this project was putting a rolled piece of paper into the pen.
I found a package of gummy candy, shaped like fries and hamburgers, at the grocery store. My original thought was to use them with the hamburger or fry box dies. Then I noticed it had a gummy pizza, so I used that instead. :) It fit perfectly in my Sizzix shaker box die. Cute huh?! Of course a pizza needs a pizza cutter. I used a circle punch and word window punch for part of the cutter. The black handle is a random piece of paper I cut to size.
This sweet little candy box is made using the largest flower in the floral frames collection framelits. It holds 3 Hershey Miniatures perfectly. I found the instructions on karteundkunst.blogspot.com. I believe it's written in German, but she has pictures, which are easy to follow. You'll find it in her November 2013 archives. Thanks for sharing Sabine.
I prefer to make 3d projects, but you always need cards. So for this card, I punched out a circle and held it in the middle of the card while I sponged around it with orange ink. I used the banners framelits, perfect pennants stamp set, petite petals punch, petite petal stamp set and the envelope punch board to make the matching envelope.
Becky Roberts showed these cute little key ring notepads on her blog. I liked the idea and wanted to try my own. It's made with the scalloped tag topper punch and lined notecards, which are found with the school supplies. I used the hearts framelits to cut the heart in the center of the cover. The binder ring is wrapped with ribbon.
I found these fun colored sandwich bags at Target. I cut the zip lock off the top and randomly stamped flowers on it with white Stazon ink, then I filled it with yellow gumballs and tied a little tag on it. Don't you think yellow is such a happy color?! :)
I try to look at all my die cuts in different ways and this particular pillow box die cut, from sizzix, screamed coffee cup. It only needed a couple strips of paper across the top to make it happen. Too bad I don't drink coffee.
I found these little cups at the dollar store and new I could make something fun with them. I filled one with goldfish snack crackers and used this fin-tastic stamp on top. Wouldn't it make a great treat to put in your child's lunch sack?
