Trio Punch Wreath

I can't take credit for this idea but isn't it beautiful?  This is a card I made at a workshop.  It's made with the Trio Punch...The colors are Real Red and Certainly Celery.  The wreath is made of Certainly Celery and Old Olive with Real Red Brads.  This is one my favorites!  Simple and very cute!

Rudolph Bag Toppers

Aren't these the cutest lil' reindeer you ever did see?  These are the treats I made for the Ronald McDonald House Christmas project.  The head is made from the Top Note die cut in Soft Suede.  The circle punches made the eyes and nose and the Snowflake die cut made the antlers.  These bag toppers are easy to make and took me less than a couple of hours to complete.  I'm not a glitter gal but I bet the nose would look pretty awesome done in glitter!

Note Pad Holder

I was sick again this weekend so not much stamping....I did manage to make this...I had seen it on Patty Bennett's blog a few days ago.  She had the directions and measurements listed...of course she made hers with file folders from the catalog.  Mine is just made with cardstock.  It's sure a pretty way to cover a plain, inexpensive pad from the dollar store!

When I first saw this stamp in the new catalog, I really didn't care for it much...but now it's really one of my favorites! This card was part of our shoebox swap at our downline meeting...I am sorry to say, I don't know who made it but I totally love it! CS is Chocolate Chip with Old Olive DS paper. The greeting is from Four The Holidays...and the brads are Designer Filigree.

Gift Card Holder

Here's another gift card holder, perfect for the holidays...
Start with a 4x11 piece of cardstock.  Score at 4, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2.  On the mountain at 5 1/2 ", cut a slit just wide enough to hold the gift card.  On the back side adhere just on three sides.  You want to make sure not to put the sticky tape on the forth side or you won't be able to put the card in.  Stamp and add embellishments!  That's it!

Dasher Gift Card Holder

This takes a piece of card stock cut to 7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches. Score at 3 and 6, folding down to make the front flap and up to make the pocket for the gift card.  I added DS paper to the top panel and the panel right before you fold up the pocket portion of gift card holder.

I brought ribbon around through the back of the holders up through the punch holes and tied the ribbon around the fronts to secure them. Dasher was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink corners punched with the ticket punch.

Gift Box With Note Cards

This little gift box was made with Sizzix Die Cut Box #2.  I cut an extra flap and attached it on the inside to create a sort of gable box.  I punched a hold at the top and secured it with ribbon after inserting the 3x3 note cards with envelopes.  The box and cards both have Specialty DS paper from the Holiday Mini Catty and the stamp sets used are Delightful Decorations and Christmas Punch.

Box In A Bag

These gift bags were made with the tutorial by on Andrea Walford's blog.  She gives credit for the original idea to Diana Gibbs, however she altered the dimensions to create her "Purse in a Box".   In her tutorial she says she made gift cards and placed them in this bag but  I didn't add cards to this.  They are just being used for gift bags but i wanted something a little different than your usual store bought gift bag. This is a great bag for a small item or that special gift!

The Ballet Blue center is punched with Eyelet Border punch and the the snowflakes from the Jumbo Snowflake Punch. It's hard to tell from the picture but the snowflake punches are adhered to the inside of the card on the back portion of the card along with a second eyelet border.
