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