Kisses and Confetti Cracker

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. :)

Merry & Bright Tea Light

I placed a couple of holiday tea lights in a cello bag with a simple bag topper.  Now they make a great gift or party favor. Have a Merry Christmas!

Wondrous Wreath Jar

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.

Joy Curvy Keepsake

I slightly altered the curvy keepsake box by folding down two of the sides instead of having all the pieces close on top.  I love how quick and easy this box comes together.

Holly Jolly Kisses

I love these little wooden spoons!  I've added a little washi tape to the handle and attached it to a small bag of Hershey Kisses.  It's a yummy, sweet treat. :)

The box #2 bigz die is the perfect size for holding two mini hand sanitizers and hand lotion.  Now I have a great little gift for a co-worker or friend. :)

Gingerbread Coffee Cup and Holder

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!

Elf Gift Card Holder


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!! :)
