New Years Party Bag

πŸŽ‰ Happy New Year! πŸŽ‰

Merry Christmas

Thank you for visiting my blog this year. 😘 Merry Christmas! Sincerely, Babette

A Little Dash Of Cheer

A little dash of cheer on a salt cute! πŸ˜ƒ Now I need to find the perfect "cheer" to put inside. What would you put inside? 

December Deliciousness

This stamp wasn't as easy to use as I thought.  I finally decided to create a tag and attach it to a cello bag filled with mini candy canes.  Maybe next year I can get a little more creative with it.  πŸ€”

Jingle Joy Bag

Finally! I've been patiently waiting for my November Paper Pumpkin and it finally came the same day my December kit came. I'd already seen so many cute projects made with the kit.  Instead of using mine as a stocking, I chose to create a gift sack by tucking the toe end back inside itself.  It's so dang cute and now I know this kit can be used for something other than Christmas projects. I'm thinking Valentine's Day. ❤️

Chocolate Gift

I thought it would be fun to make my chocolate square look like a wrapped gift.  I started with a 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of designer paper.  On the long side I scored it at 1, 1 1/4, 3 3/4 and 4.  The bow builder punch creates a nice size bow to top the gift and finish it off.

Happy Wonderful Christmas Box

Here's an idea for Christmas wrap. The box is the Sizzix Bigz die, Box #2.  I simply added a few ribbons, a sentiment and candy cane. This time of year we need quick and simple, this is it. 😊

Reindeer Bag

When I received my Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits one of the dies reminded me of a deer antler, so I decided a reindeer would be one of my Christmas projects. I thought it would work with the owl punch but it didn’t. I searched through my dies and decided the corn die in the Cannery Set Framelits would be perfect. I cut a bit off the top then attached the antlers.  After adding the eyes and a red nose I had my reindeer! It’s so cute and better than I envisioned.

Season’s Greetings Snowman Shaker

Thought I'd use my fuse tool to create a Christmas project.  I glued a snowman and tree onto designer series paper then tucked it inside a photo sleeve. Before I sealed it with my fuse tool I added sequins. The tag, ribbon and jingle bell are attached to the outside.

Elf Cupcake

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. I used the witch legs and shoes from my Bewitched die set by Echo Park Paper Company to create elf legs and shoes. A Halloween die set that can be used for Christmas as well, yippee!  It seems I can have my cupcake and eat it too!! πŸ˜ƒ

Very Merry Berry Basket

I hope this looks masculine. I really tried...I used deer paper and blue ribbon!πŸ˜€ Although, I wonder how many guys really care about the wrapping. Don't you think they're more interested in the contents? πŸ˜‰

Merry Little Christmas Chocolate

This little stocking stuffer has two Ghirardelli chocolate squares tucked inside.  I used the scalloped tag topper punch to create the wrap. The little clip was a happy surprise when I realized it fit perfectly inside the slot and kept it tightly closed. 

Happiest Of Holidays Card

I made this card using the Pining For Plaid Paper Pumpkin kit.  The intended card is wonderful but I like trying alterations. I used the Circle Framelits to create a circle slightly larger than the circle on the card and a Pine Cone Sizzlits I've had for many years. 

Happy Holidays Gift Bag

Glassine bags are great because you kinda get to peek at what's inside. 😊 This elf stamp from the Festive Phrases stamp set is great too!
