Stocking Stuffer


Looking for a quick last minute stocking stuffer? 

Instead of making snowman poop, reindeer poop or Grinch poop I just made this wrapper.  My intent was to make snowman poop.  But I just wasn't feeling it.  So instead I just kept it simple.  To make these mint wrappers simply measure the height and width and cut.  Then score along the sides.  In this case I used Tic Tacs.  I'm HORRIBLE with numbers so I was a bit frustrated with the measurements.  But I eventually got there.

This little Santa postage stamp is the cutest stamped on Kraft.  I added a little twine to tie it all together.  The paper I used is a Recollections Kraft Holiday pack. 

I used the small rounded corners punch to round the corners. 

These little Tic Tacs are all spruced up!

These would work with gum packs to or any mint treat.  What a fun crafty way to add a little flare to your Christmas Stockings. 

This will be my last post before Christmas.  I'll be spending the weekend with my family, cooking and relaxing.  Wishing you and yours a splendid Holiday.  And remember to take time to relax and enjoy.  The holidays after all are about spending time with those you love, remembering those that have left us and just enjoying the moment.

  6. I really like the vintage look you pulled off. Neat that there's no 'poop' in sight, also!! My mom goes through tic-tacs like a madwoman - I'm so liftin' this!

  7. I should use this idea and come up with a clever saying about not smoking. A friend of mine is trying to quit and he used tic tacs to help supplement, so maybe a cute tic tac holder and a helpful saying will help him achieve his goals.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
