Bag in a Box

Here is the “Bag in a Box” (or is it Box in a Bag, never can remember). I used the Ski Slope DSP from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Shimmer White for the scallop edge (you can’t tell in the photo), black and silver c/s. I used the Santa from Deer Friends. The buttons are Earth Elements & Neutrals. The ribbon is ┬áReal Red Striped Grosgrain. Another easy project to hold some of your home made or store bought goodies in for ┬áChristmas.

Hot Cocoa & Gift Card Holder


Andrea Walford is sharing several projects for her Holiday Blitz Event and this is one of them. This is a great gift item. The gift card goes on the left and the hot cocoa goes on the right. When I took this photo I didn’t have any not cocoa to put in the pocket. I used the Ski Slop DSP, Baja Breeze, Whisper White & Chocolate Chip card stock. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip Double Stitched Grosgrain. I won this roll at convention and have been hoarding it every since. Not sure why. I used the snowflake in versamark (can’t really see it in the photo) and the saying in Chocolate Chip, both from the Holiday Collection (County Living promotion, going on right now). Check out Andrea’s blog and see the other projects she is sharing. She gives the best directions with photos, which is good for me since I am a visual learner.

Here Comes Santa & Rudolf

These triangle boxes are so much fun to make. I found the directions on Splitcoast, Beate Johns has a tutorial. Then on Samantha Parisi’s blog I found the Santa & Rudolf. I changed the ears, antlers, and the eye lashes on Rudolf. He turned out pretty cute if I don’t say so myself. No stamping on these babies, just punches and the swirls Sizzix die. I just checked Samantha’s blog and now she has an angel using the triangle box. Very cute too.
